Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I was looking for a simple, chewy ginger cookie recipe...AND THIS IS IT! They came out in the perfect round cookie shape, perfect golden-brown colour, neat little cookie cracks, and tasted heavenly. The outside was crunchy, but the insides are wonderfully fluffy and soft. The spicy aftertaste was the cherry on top. I love that the ingredients are simple, but uses fresh grated ginger. As I was making the dough, I was initially worried that it was too wet (so I added a few tablespoons of flour), but then let the chilling do the work. Afterwards, it was completely fine. Keeping this one for sure!

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Every time I make these for my a cappella group they're all gone in less than half an hour. Soft, chewy, delicious and really easy to make - though I did take another reviewer's advice and added crushed candy cane. Love it so much!!

Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Tastes very authentic! - at least for the filling. I made this twice and both times the pastry turned out very hard (I dropped one on the floor by accident and it didn't even CRACK). I noticed that it baked faster than the filling - which made it difficult to gauge time. The first time I actually burned the comparison to the other reviews, I feel like I might have made a mistake, but I followed the instructions as faithfully as possible. Maybe I'll try using premade tart shells C:

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
I made these cupcakes for a friend's birthday. They turned out really well. My friends really enjoyed them! I followed the advice from other reviews and filled the cups (two inches) about halfway instead - which came out perfectly. Amongst the people I shared them with, the general consensus that they're better with frosting. Also used the original measurements, which made 24 cupcakes.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I always change it up a little bit until it's the texture I want. It's always a little crystal-y, but works in a way where everybody's satisfied.

Cinnamon Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
These are great cookies; whenever I make them and my friends figure out, they demand to have some! Then again, I love all things cinnamon. Is there some way to make more cookies with less ingredients? There are a lot of egg yolks.
