Crispy Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Sooooo yummy! I could not resist eating two! I just made these this afternoon and they taste great right out of the oven! Instead of shortening, I used softened butter and I also added 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves. I also did not roll the cookies in sugar. Instead of shaping into balls, I rolled all the dough out onto a floured surface to about an 1/8 inch thickness and cut the cookies with a 1 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. I baked them at 350 for about 10 minutes each. It made about 6 dozen cookies. Please note that you do NOT have to refrigerate the dough before making them this way. I absolutely loves spiced baked goods and these are the best! The amount of salt is perfect, the contrast (salty-sweet) is great! I will most certainly be making these again! Taste just like store-bought gingersnaps without the preservatives and other fake ingredients.

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Loved these! I scooped them into balls and coated them in dark chocolate. They really have to be frozen all the time- they can get mushy if you don't. I love the taste of cookie dough and these are the perfect treat to have on hand! I will be making these again, SO GOOD!

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I was amazed at how rich these were! I halved this recipe and my family was asking for more! They may give you a sugar headache but the experience is worth it! I coated these in dark chocolate but I might skip that next time- no more chocolate is needed. So good!

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I was looking for a simple yet traditional recipe for fudge and this proved to be a great one. I had a little trouble knowing when the soft-ball stage occurred- for me it took nearly half and hour simmering. It would have helped if the time was listed in the recipe so those who don't own a candy thermometer would know. I beat my fudge for 5-10 minutes after adding the butter as suggested in the betty crocker cookbook. Great recipe- I do recommend.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2012
I have made this only once but it is amazing. I was surprised how easy it was to make- the cake stayed really moist and never showed signs of cracking. It looked just like the picture- the presentation was just great. I used a pumpkin pie spice substitue and also added in a dash of ground mace. After researching a couple other recipes and taking note of the reviews I decreased the filling a little- only using 6 oz. of cream cheese. None squeezed out and the result was picture-perfect. Will make again- granny kat must have been a good cook.
