Whoopie Pies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Incredible! Very rich, so make sure you don't make the cookies too large. I have made this recipe a number of times, and have always had success. One thing, however, is that the 2nd listing of "1 cup milk" is unneccessary, as the directions only specify using 1 cup of milk total, and that's in the filling (it would be too runny if both cups of milk were used).

Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Yummy cookie, one I'll be making to send to a friend in Iraq...for those who are looking to make the frosting red, I'd suggest using gel coloring instead of the food coloring you use to dye eggs--the gel stuff will not make the frosting runny and will produce a much more intense coloring with just a tiny amount.

Lemon Lu Lu Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
This cake was really easy...I substituted 3/4 cup applesauce for the eggs in the cake mix directions (as my daughter's allergic to eggs)--1/4 cup applesauce for each egg. I also substituted 1/4 cup lemon juice for 1/4 cup of the water that the cake mix directions called for. When the cake came out of the oven, I made the glaze with 3 parts powdered sugar to 1 part lemon juice (about 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup lemon juice total), as I saw a few other reviewers mention that the recipe made too much glaze, and t least one other mention that the glaze seemed too thin. The 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and the 1/2 cup lemon juice I used was just about right for my taste in terms of thickness and amount (I omitted the butter). I also used a fork to poke the holes in the cake, to make it go faster.

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This was pretty easy to do...the only thing I found was that there just wasn't enough fondant to cover 60 cherries (I was able to cover 47). I used one 12-oz bag of semisweet chocolate chips, which was enough to dip about 42-44 cherries--I ran out of room on my wax paper-covered cookie sheet after 42 cherries, so I ate the remaining 5 fondant-covered cherries. Yum! These were made as a gift for my father-in-law, so we'll see how he likes them (he loves his chocolate-covered cherries).
