Cranberry Squares
Wonderful recipe! I love! cranberries, but they are not available fresh in South Africa. Accordingly, I used two tins of whole cranberry sauce (not many whole ones in there!), and mixed it with 1,5 cups of dried cranberries which I had soaked in water for a while. Because I like them tart (like the fresh ones), I added a bit of lemon juice. Other than this, I made exactly as given, but did double the amount in order to make two cake tins full as it is Christmas time and so nice to have something to give away. My husband and I both love the taste, and I feel very impressed with the way they came out. Will absolutely be making again and again! Thank you!

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps
Mixed feelings! I made the recipe exactly as given, but am not sure if I used the correct molasses. I went to the store especially to get some, and there were two to choose from. The Black Strap Molasses had a label which stated it was for use also in ginger biscuits, etc., and that is what I thought was right then. However, I really did not like the bitter aftertaste that it left in my mouth, and my husband had the same comment. The spice was overpowering the ginger for me, but I loved the old fashioned look with the cracking on the top. This worried me all night, and because I ran out of eggs, I was at the local garage at 06:00 this morning so that I could try it again, this time with variations. I then used half flour and half wholewheat flour, cut down considerably on the spices, but not the ginger. I left out the molasses totally and used a bit of maple syrup that I had leftover with syrup. This morning's batch came out more to our taste. I plan to try it once more, with even more ginger, and perhaps less sugar.

Key Lime Cheesecake I
I am a hostess for our Ladies Morning next week, and because I love cheesecake, decided to try a new recipe. I baked this earlier this morning, and could hardly wait for it to cool in the fridge before testing it! It is fantastic! Limes are very scarce and expensive locally, and the ones I had did not give enough juice, so I had to add lemon juice to make up the quantity. My husband and I both loved it, so I plan to make it again for Saturday. I am thinking of making a berry topping, just because I think it will look so elegant. Thanks for a lovely recipe, which I plan to use many more times!
