Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I halved this recipe. I used all margarine in place of butter and shortening. I softened the butter a bit before creaming with sugar, eggs, and vanilla. I then put flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in the same bowl. It was very convenient. I then refrigerated the batter while I mixed the cinnamon and sugar in a ziploc bag. It took quite awhile to get the right mixture because I didn't measure. After refrigerating the batter for about 10 minutes, I took it out. I rolled them into balls and put them in the ziploc and rolled it. I heated the oven to 375 degrees and baked the cookies for 9 minutes. In the end, I got 12 good sized cookies. They came right off my ungreased pan. They were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Not too sweet either. Love them!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Having only made brownies from the mix before, I was pretty reluctant going into this. I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13 pan. I melted the butter in a small saucepan then poured it into a large bowl. I kept the bowl in the freezer for a bit to cool the butter (so it wouldn't melt the sugar or cook the eggs). I took it out and mixed in the other ingredients as listed in the recipe. I made sure not to really beat in the ingredients or over mix. I could still see specks of powder not completely mixed in yet, but it was fine. I poured everything in the pan and hoped that it wasn't too little and wouldn't come out thin. I then sprinkled some chocolate chips over the batter. I baked it for about 22 minutes. As others have said, I too didn't make the frosting. However, I sprinkled some powdered sugar over the brownies, more for decoration purposes. I let the brownies cool for about 10 minutes and then sliced them. They were delicious! The brownies weren't too sweet, too fudgy, too cake like, or anything. I thought they were a good medium. I am definitely a beginner baker as well. My brownies were also a bit over an inch tall, which was good. The brownies are very rich, and they are especially delicious with a glass of milk. I will definitely make this again, as I don't remember the mix even being this good! Note: make sure you DO NOT scorch the butter. If when you finish melting it and it gives off a bad scent, throw it away! It's basic knowledge, but just in case.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
After reading the reviews, I was nervous about how these cookies would turn out. Last time I attempted to make them, but they completely spread out over the entire pan and hardly rose. This time went over really well. I cut the recipe in half and got about 24 nice-sized cookies. I followed the recipe pretty exact, using my typical "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" over actual butter. I smushed the butter repeatedly till it got soft. I don't have actual measurements utensils, so I just estimate. I found the cookies to be quite cake-like, but it doesn't matter much to me. The edges were crispy while the rest was very soft. Make sure to have a medium amount of chocolate chips, not too much and not too little. I baked the cookies for 12 minutes. Overall, a very excellent cookie recipe perfect for beginners like myself. I may look around for a chewy cookie recipe, but I will use this recipe many more times. I was complimented by my guests of whom I served these cookies. Give the recipe a shot, and don't be discouraged by the few bad reviews. (unless you don't like cakey cookies)

Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I made this syrup today for the first time and it came out wonderfully! I stirred everything together then turned on the heat. Once it got to a rolling boil, I left it for about four minutes. I poured the syrup out and left it while making the pancakes. Wonderful! It is however a bit thick, so I would cut off some flour next time.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I followed the recipe pretty much, and the pancakes turned out great! I did substitute lemon juice for the vinegar, and I couldn't tell the difference. I also didn't put any butter in. This was the first time I made pancakes, and it turned out pretty well. The pancakes puffed up beautifully and were easy to flip. Will make this again!
