Date Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
To those reviewers who had problems with the proportions I can tell you that I've been baking a similar recipe for years that calls for baking the bars in a 9x13" pan. My filling calls for 1 lb dates, 2/3c. brown sugar, 2/3c. orange juice, 1tsp vanilla extract & 1Tbs lemon juice. I also puree the filling in the processor. The oatmeal mixture calls for 1 1/2c rolled oats, 1 1/2c flour, 1c brown sugar, 1/2tsp baking soda & 2 sticks butter.Pat half of mixture in a greased 9x13"pan, spread with filling and top with remaining oatmeal mixture. It's important to press this top mixture slightly into the filling before baking. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Don't give up because this is a wonderful recipe.

ABC (Absolute Best Chewy) Chocolate Chippers

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2002
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Stacy, bless you for contributing this recipe. I'm a very serious baker who has been frustrated at the quality of the chocolate chip cookies I've been baking in the past. I don't like the Toll House recipe. I've been fiddling with it for years to no avail. I always end up with either very dry cookies or "pancake" cookies with little chocolate chip "bumps". They also fall apart very easily. The decreased butter and the addition of corn syrup in your recipe did the trick. The baking time is critical. Too little and they're a little raw, too much and they become a bit dry. I've determined the correct length of time for my oven and the cookies are WONDERFUL!
