Raspberry and Apricot Rugelach
These turned out FANTASTIC, and were quite addicting. I'm pretty critical about my baking, and these were one of the few things that I was able to call a success--to my roommate's astonishment ("you've never said that before!") Be sure to FOLLOW DEBORAH'S ADVICE (see previous review) about rolling out the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper before refrigerating--makes it so easy. I divided the dough into 4 balls, rolled each out between 2 sheets of wax paper, and refrigerated them for 20 min while i made the filling. Make sure that when you peel off the wax paper it isn't sticking to the dough--if so, put it back for another 10 min. For the filling, I only used 2 T of sugar, and it was just right. I used 1 T of raspberry jam and it didn't ooze everywhere, and I baked them on parchment paper lined baking sheets. I followed another reviewer's advice of placing them, rolled up and ready to go in the oven, into the fridge first for another 20 min before baking--this ensured that they were nice and flaky. Mine only needed 25 min in the oven.

Quiche Lorraine I
Very soft and delicate--much nicer than I expected. For a firmer quiche, add another egg and decrease the cream/milk. Changes I made: I sauteed mushrooms, spinach and some turkey ham in with the onions, and sprinkled with salt and pepper. I used 1 c. half-and-half instead of milk, and sprinkled salt into the egg mixture rather than using a full 1/4 t. I also used a combination of swiss cheese and mixed shredded cheeses (cheddar, monterey jack and mozzarella) to give it more flavor. Lastly, made my own pie crust--see "Pastry for double pie crust"--which was very flaky and made it very good.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
"Fudgey and AMAZING" is what I said right after they came out of the oven. I'd doubled the eggs, used chocolate chips instead of squares, and substituted salted butter for the unsalted + salt. They were a huge hit at church the next day : ) By the 2nd day they were getting a little dry, though, so next time I will try adding sour cream as some others have suggested or some more liquid, perhaps oil. But even so, I reheat them in the microwave for 20 sec. and serve with milk...mmmm....
