Thimble Cookies
These cookies are truly delicious, delicate, tender, and not too sweet. I make the indentation, fill with jam, and then bake for 15 minutes at 350. They really do look lovely on a holiday platter. One could drizzle a bit of a frosting or melted white chocolate after they are cooled but they really don't need it. Another fantastic combination for this same cookie recipe is to omit the lemon juice, use light brown sugar instead of white sugar, and roll in finely chopped pecans instead of walnuts. My favorite with this combo is still the raspberry jam but many other fillings would be wonderful as well. I had a dear friend, age 92, once tell me that this was the best cookie that she had ever eaten. A very heartwarming moment for me.

Clone of a Cinnabon
We were blown away by these delicious cinnamon rolls! My search is over for a great recipe. I followed this recipe exactly for the dough, which baked up gorgeous, light, tender, moist and flavorful. I think using the bread flour is important as others have said as well. I tweaked the filling a bit, more butter, less brown sugar and less cinnamon, and I added plenty of finely chopped pecans. I frost as soon as they come out of the oven. I have tried baking them after being refrigerated overnight, and after being frozen as well, and they are perfect both ways. They seemed to have a chance to raise a bit more with the following process--Place rolls from the refrigerator into a cold oven, and set oven temp on warm or lowest setting for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, reset oven temp to 350 degrees and bake till done, about 20 minutes for my oven. If the rolls are frozen, thaw in fridge overnight.

Applesauce Cake VI
I came looking for this recipe today as I had 2 cups of homemade Gravenstein applesauce in my fridge that I wanted to do something with. We had our first slices while the cake was still a bit warm. We found it very flavorful, moist, and delicious. I will definitely make this recipe again and again. The thick, homemade applesauce probably added something extra for the flavor. I used 1 teaspoon salt, used 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon baking soda. I used only 1 cup oil instead of 1 1/2 cups but did not increase the applesauce. I used the cinnamon as called for and liked the balance with the apple flavor. Thank you so much for a luscious and really easy cake recipe. I used a bundt pan and baked it for 55 minutes. A glaze would have been lovely but we enjoyed it plain.
