Honey Bun Cake I
I would like to thank one of the reviewers “CaleyCat” for giving a substitute recipe for the cake mix. I followed her instructions, it came out perfect. I baked it in a bundt pan , added the filling into 2 layers, no need to swirl, it needs 60 minutes at 325 degrees, looks good, tastes wonderful.

Lemon Curd Bars
The look of these bars was fabulous, absolutely wonderful, I wish I had a camera to submit a photo. Next time I will not add baking soda to the crust, I am telling you I am the queen of bars, and I don’t use baking soda at all in my crusts it makes a big diffrence. I used my own recipe for lemon curd: ( ½ cup lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest ,3 eggs, 13/4 cup sugar, 1teaspoon of corn flour, put all ingredients in the blender for 10 seconds, then cook the curd on a low heat and add ½ stick of butter boil for 5 minutes.

Chewy Coconut Cookies
I made these cookies for my husband, he loved them , I added ¼ cup of flour as some of you mentioned , but it was a mistake, it made the cookies hold their shapes as balls , not flat, so once I got them out of the oven while still soft I gently pressed each one with a spatula to flatten them. So they looked good, but next time I won’t add the extra four maybe only one tablespoon.
