Cranberry Salad
Pleasantly suprised! I honestly didn't know you could eat cranberries raw. I used my Pampered Chef chopper to chop the cranberries and apples fine. I made this recipe in steps. I made the berries and sugar on Tues (accidentally used 1- 1/2c sugar), added the apples on Wed and mixed the salad together before Thanksgiving dinner on Thur. I did end up straining some of the liquid so it wouldn't turn too pink before adding the cool whip. I don't care for marshmallows but this salad was really good. I used Chobani vanilla yogurt, not too sweet. I was worried that the small amout of leftovers wouldn't save but it was great the next day too. It didn't get watery.

Pumpkin Cookies II
I would describe the texture as that of a fluffy pancake. I doubled the spices as recommended and am glad I did, they are not very sweet. The nuts and raisins were omitted due to allergies but I think they would have added a lot. I sprinkled the hot cookies with cinnamon/sugar mixture. I didn't have quite enough shortening so I used a small cup of diced pears, drained (I was out of applesauce.) It didn't affect the recipe. The batter wasn't at all watery. I made them for book club and everyone loved them and my boys loved them. I thought they were ok. I'm looking forward to trying them again tomorrow with coffee.

Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies
Requires patience. They are in the oven now and look just like the picture. I used a rolling mat to roll out the best rectangle I could. Then I flipped it onto a 8x13 pan. I did the same with the second ball of dough and flipped it onto the other. I trimmed the edges square and rolled it up longways in the pan. I did double the recipe and ended up with 45 cookies.
