Pumpkin Gingerbread
I know people get irritated when you rate a recipe that you modified but I still feel like this recipe is great on its own. I just happened to change it to suit me and it still came out fantabulous. Smells friggin awesome while it's baking. I halved the recipe and used my standard loaf pan (8x4). Used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, the rest AP. Used orange juice instead of water cause why not? Increased the spices by about 50% except the cloves (blech) cause I wanted it super spicy and added some cardamom to the mix. Applesauce instead of oil. Baked for exactly an hour with foil over top the last 20 min or so. Because I had them around and didn't know how to get rid of them, threw in 3/4 cup of chopped fresh cranberries. It has an interesting spongy texture when it's done but I don't mind it. It's still super moist and tastes yummy especially with some low fat cream cheese spread on top.

Citrus Shortbread Cookies
I did modify this recipe based on suggestions from other people. I halved the cranberries (can't imagine how you would cut the darn things if you used what was actually called for). I also doubled the orange zest. It was the perfect amount of orange so I feel like had I used less, you wouldn't really be able to taste it. I cut my cookies in 1/4" slices. Was it supposed to say 1/2"? That sounds like a super fat cookie. Mine stayed in the fridge overnight and were very easy to cut the next day. Took a few minutes longer to bake, maybe 14 min. I halved the whole recipe and the way I happened to roll and cut I got 24 nice little cookies. I may decrease the almond next time. Just not a personal fan. They otherwise look great, like confetti. Easy to make.

Double Quick Dinner Rolls
The texture was super fluffy. I used quick rise yeast and they had no trouble rising at all. The dough was a little bland, though. I had even added garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and some Parmesan cheese and they still didn't taste like much of anything. I guess they made a nice canvas for butter. I will definitely be adding more salt and more seasonings next time. They were really easy to make so I will be happy to give them another chance.
