Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll
So good!!! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! My only suggestion, while rolling, is to sprinkle on a lot of powdered sugar onto your tea towel when rolling. I liken it to the same method as if you were flouring your surface well before kneading dough. Dust your tea towel with powdered sugar, and use your hands to spread it out on the towel, creating a light layer. Don't skimp this part. If you only use a little bit, I guarantee you'll be having cake stick to the towel and your end result won't turn out. The layer of powdered sugar helps as a barrier so that cake doesn't stick to the towel, and you'll see as the rolled up warm cake 'rests', heat will escape from the towel, also melting the sugar into the cake surface. When you unroll the cake, the powdered sugar will have added an extra thin layer of sweetness. I also refrigerated the filling first before spreading onto the cake, and that eliminated the gooey mess that spills out from the sides when rolling. Otherwise the filling would be too soft. Great for freezing, and thaws out really well. To store in the freezer, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or parchment, then wrap in foil. Will taste fresh even when thawed. I made several of these for parties over the holidays. I brought one out after a month in the freezer, and after thawing it tasted just as fresh as the day I made it. When slicing it up to serve or present on a platter, clean your knife after each slice so that you get nice, clean cuts.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise
Followed to the T, with the exception of cooking the butter and sugar on the stove instead of in the microwave. Otherwise, just keep an eye when it's in the oven so it doesn't burn. Used pecans, and was a perfect treat! Also makes a big batch, so it's good to give away as gifts for the holidays.

Oatmeal Carmelitas
You DO NOT need to change a thing about this recipe. I followed the recipe EXACTLY as written, and the only difference was that I doubled it to make a 9x13 pan. I did not alter any of the measurements when I doubled the recipe. I melted the butter in the microwave just to where it was softened all the way through, but not completely liquid. I baked each layer as is, but lightly patted down the top layer of oatmeal crumble into the caramel layer so that it would not be too loose and crumbly after baking, but that's about it. Otherwise, I baked these the night before and when they were done, I let them set up overnight on the counter. The following morning I used a very sharp knife around the edges and was able to cut into the bars with no problems or sticking because they set up very well overnight. The bars came out very easily from the pan, I did not use any foil or parchment paper on the bottom of the pan. All was needed was a metal spatula to get them out. I was able to cut about 4 1/2 dozen small bars, which was more than enough because each bite was very rich and perfectly sweet. I placed each bar into cupcake tins, and they were excellent treats for my family.
