Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
My first apple pie was a success! I used 3lbs of Granny Smith apples and my pie was huge! I didn't use water and instead added 1 T of vanilla extract. I also tossed the apples in cinnamon before covered them with half the sauce and pouring it al into my pie crust. As suggested I brushed the bottom of my crust with egg and it was not soggy. I covered the pie with a full pie shell and cut out four "leaves". I then spread the rest of my sauce on top and cooked the pie on a coookie sheet for an hour. The sauce was really thick and gritty, but it didn't affect the taste. The pie is a bit tart right out of the oven, but sweetens as it cools.

Basic Yankee Bread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This is just like the stuffing my grandmother used to make. It's delicious. I omit the sausage and use poultry seasoning instead of sage. This is a classic for sure!

Southern Sweet Potato Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
My family loved this pie this Thanksgiving. I omitted the salt and light corn syrup and added 1 Tablespoon of vanilla and cinnamon. I'll be making this one again for Christmas.

Eggnog Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I made this for Thanksgiving and my family loved this recipe. I used almond extract instead of rum, increased the eggnog to 1 1/4 cup, and doubled the flour. The Crust was Ginger Snaps and I made a caramel sauce for the top. It was a hug hit. Next time I'll make sure the eggnog is room temperature because once I added it cold to my cream cheese it was a bit lumpy, but still delicious.

Pineapple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I can't believe the respone I got to this recipe. My family loved this! !! I made it this morning for Thanksgiving Dinner tonight. It was super easy and super quick. I love bread pudding so I was excited to try something a little different. I made 1 1/2 times the quanity of ingredients, I also added about 1/4 cup or so of heavy cream. After 35 mintues it was not really brown or bubbling, so cooked it 15 min more. The middle was still soggy. I ended up cooking it about 1 hour and 10 min. My family raved so much about this I will be taking it to my Christmas Potluck lunch next month at work and of course making it for all my aunts, uncles, and cousins again on Christmas because they couldn't get enough!!! Thank you for a great new holiday tradition.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2000
I love bread pudding, and this was my first attempt at making it myself. It was very easy to make and very quick. I didn't have stale bread so I put the bread in the oven until it was toasted. It wasn't as firm as I would have liked, but it was still delicious. My boyfriend had never had bread pudding, and he loved it. Next time he wants me to put raisins in it, and I think I'll add more butter because I love a buttery bread pudding.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2000
I can't believe how great this cake came out! It was sooo easy to make. I practically had all of the ingredients in my refridgerator. I'm a person to follow recipes to the letter, but I can't wait to try different variations of this cheesecake. The crust was a little soggy, but I mistakenly added twice as much butter. But it was still perfect. It didn't crack, although I did use the water bath as suggested by another person who reviewed this recipe. I have spent so much money buying those little, tiny, $6 and $7 cheesecakes at the grocery store. If I were to eat a piece of this cake and a store brought cake from their bakery I couldn't tell the difference. I think I'll make this cake again this weekend.
