Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
These are very easy, but I would reduce the sugar to 1 cup and use all butter instead of shortening. VARIATION: use all butter, substitute brown sugar for white, and roll in cinnamon sugar before baking. Yummy! I also mixed 1 1/2 cups wheat flour into the all-purpose to make the 3 1/2 cups.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Cake portion is much too sweet, especially when you factor in the pecan streusel. I had reduced the sugar by a half cup, and next time I will reduce it by another. I also substituted the sour cream with Chobani 0% plain greek yogurt, and added more vanilla to suit my taste. Turned out great!

Soft Pretzels I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I like this one because the taste is closer to a soft pretzel you'd get in Philadelphia. If you are looking for the mall pretzel, this is not the recipe to choose. These are lighter and fluffier and have a more traditional pretzel taste. Definitely reduce the oven temperature to at least 450°. I baked them at that temperature for nine minutes, and they were close to burning. Next time I'll try it at 425°.
