Egg Custard Pie III
I wanted to make a custard to put fruit on top of, and this recipe was perfect. I omitted the nutmeg completely and added some vanilla extract and yellow food coloring and it was beautiful and light and delicious. It wasn't too sweet at all. I just put some blueberries, strawberries, and mango on top and voila! Quick warning: When mixing the flour with the other ingredients, don't just dump it in there. Mix all the other ingredients in first, and then slowly mix it or sift it in. I just threw them all in a bowl and ended up having to strain the mixture before I combined it with the eggs. Then I put the combined filling through a strainer again. It ensures a smoothly textured pie.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies
this is my staple brownie recipe! i'm always looking for new recipes to improve on, but this one i've stuck to. it calls for cheap ingredients that can be found in any house. my only recommendation is always doubling the recipe. if you want thicker, taller brownies, double it and bake it in a 8x8 pan. if you want bigger, flatter brownies use a 13x9. both work wonders!

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I
These were awful!!!! I halved the batch and after forcing my little brother to try one ate the entire batch!!!! IT WAS AWFUL! but in a good way of course. I used splenda brown sugar, and normal sugar as a replacement, and used my smart balance light butter spread instead of the butter to decalorize it even more and it was sooooo good. Mine turned out really puffy, which i hate, but after doing some research :P, i think this was due to me halving the recipe but using a whole egg, using cold butter and eggs, chilling the dough before baking (which made it more rollable) and maybe using too much baking soda. I also didn't find it to be very sweet, which I kind of liked, but I think next time I will had a tablespoon or two of honey, or some liquid sweetener like that. Also, I think I overbaked mine with 8 minutes. Next time I'm going to try 6 and see how it goes. I didn't feel like getting out my mixer so I softened the butter and just kind of whisked it by hand. I also just kind of stuck the dough in the freezer for a couple minutes to chill it thinking it would be easier to make round and roll in sugar and stuff, but next time after I put the dough on the cookie sheets I'm going to let it warm to room temp. to see if they turn out flatter and chewier. These are officially my new favorite healthy cookie!!!! Thank you so much!!!
