Chewiest Brownies
These brownies were just OK. The "batter" is more like a dough, and in an 8x8 pan it was barely 1/2" thick. But unlike a cookie dough, the 2c sugar and lack of liquid makes it kinda grainy even after cooking. As I said, in an 8x8 pan these were very thin. 24 servings (as written) would be bite size! I'd say this makes no more than 10 modest size brownies. They are certainly tasty and chewy, but far from great brownies. I probably wouldn't try making these again...

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls
I was a bit underwhelmed by these spring rolls. I thought the herbs were a bit overpowering, because there's otherwise not a lot of flavor in there. I suppose the sauces are supposed to add flavor, but I think spring rolls should be able to stand on their own, and these don't. Also, unrelated to my rating since it was my mistake, note that these tend not to keep very well even when refrigerated. Only make enough for what you'll eat right then!

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie
Followed recipe as written and it turned out pure cherry soup. Seriously, it was 1/2" of cherry water in my 1" pie pan. I used about 2 1/2 lbs of sweet cherries. Positively didn't skip any ingredients. I let it cool thoroughly. Maybe my cherries were extra watery, maybe my tapioca wasn't the right stuff. Maybe a day of refrigeration will tighten it up to something manageable. But the whole thing will still be a soggy mess.
