Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I pulled out this dusty recipie today, and thought I would give it a shot since its been a while since anyone has posted that they have tried it. We got a bag of lemons from a neighbor the other day so I thought this would be a good use since it calls for a bit more lemon juice than most recipies. it does however produce a lot more crust than I anticipated, and I had to add some tea spoons of cold water tothe cough to get it to replicate the same consistency of Pie dough. The filling was yummy thought! I liked the Lemon Zest too! these bars have a wonderful balance of tang and sweetness. Delicious!

Daisy Brand Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
So, I gave this a daring shot, substituting the chips for Hershey's unsweetened cocoa. I added some shortening and some sugar to give it an even balance of sweetness and a decent melted chocolatey-texture (Hershey tells you how to do it on the back of the container). So I never had to heat up the burners =) From here I followed the recipe pretty much as it reads. Make sure to watch them while they cook, The can be just as easily undercooked as over baked. Again, I did not have chips to work with, so for the topping, I just made frosting the same way (like the chocolate), adding a bit of vanilla extract, about 1/3 cup of milk, and 1/2 a cup of butter. dont forget the sugar, We don't eat sugar too much, so we used about 1/2 a cup to start and went from there by tasting it! Make sure to beat it by had first a bit with a whisk, and then pull out the electric beater. what a wonderful consistency.
