Margarita Cake with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting
Made this for a summer party; cake is moist, nice uniform & dense crumb, and tasty with the lime flavor; overall a fabulous easy recipe. The glaze is lovely too, BUT it overpowers the lovely flavor of the cake itself. I also added a full TBSP of tequilla which may have a bit to do with the overpowering nature of the glaze! LoL... I would highly recommend this recipe, but would switch out the glaze for a much lighter version (no cream cheese, just a simple light glaze, or even just a light dusting of plain old powdered sugar!)

Sugar Cookie Drops
Light, crispy, buttery - these are the perfect sugar cookie! When you bite into one of these little treats you will immediately be reminded of the can of Danish Butter cookies that your Mom used to receive as a gift around the holidays. I used the recipe 'as is' and found it easy and so worth the time. Use colored sugar to dress them up, and I used a grid-pattern potato masher instead of a fork to compress each round ball of cookie dough.

Passover Chocolate Mandelbrot
"Best Mandelbrot I've ever had!" - a comment made by my calorie-conscious mother-in-law - with a compliment like that, how can anyone doubt this recipe?! Seriously though - this recipe is a keeper - easy, tasty and makes enough to serve to a crowd. Definitely make 3 loaves, bake it twice (10 minutes each side once sliced) and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. The more crunchy the better!
