Belle's Hamburger Buns
So let me first say that if you were to ONLY eat them the first day you make them, it would be a 5 star recipe! However, the very next day, the rolls were totally dried out, almost inedible, and would be a 1 star recipe. I make bread and rolls all the time, and I know not all homemade breads dry out so quickly. So, make these if you want to eat them right away, because they are delightful! I had NO trouble with the dough rising (maybe people weren't proofing correctly?), and the texture was not dense at all. They were light inside, but had enough texture to withstand holding in both hands like you do for a burger/sandwich and not getting squashed. The egg wash looked fabulous. I sprinkled sesame seeds on after the wash and it looked amazing. I would recommend refrigerating half of the dough before the second rise if you plan on having them another day, and baking them fresh right before eating. Note: I halved the recipe, and got 8 large buns. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, letting my bread machine do the work, and baking for 20min.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
YUM! Only thing is, 1/4 c makes HUUGE cookies! I ended up with a cookie pileup on my pan :) Still delicious, but next time will make a little smaller. Also might add a little more salt next time. Oh, also I used cold butter cut into pieces and the texture was perfect! Not cakey at all and no need to refrigerate first.

Easy Biscuit Mixture
SO delicious! And so incredibly easy to mix up. I put the whole mixture in my stand mixer, and although it just baaarely fit, it did the trick! Next time I will put half in at a time, because it was so dang easy in the mixer, and cut in the shortening to perfection. I've only made biscuits with this, but they rose higher and were fluffier than when I used Bisquick. I will be making this again and again!
