Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2014
This frosting is incredible. I've been making cupcake frosting with this recipe for a couple years, and everyone at work likes it so much, they fight over who gets the most cupcakes. I normally don't even like frosting, but you can't make this and not want to lick the bowl clean. So delicious. btw, put it in the fridge for a while after making it if you want to pipe it. It will solidify in the fridge. Just after mixing it, it's kind of runny. After letting it sit in the fridge, I can pipe the frosting nice and high on each cupcake.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Yummy pie! I made the mistake of listening to the other reviews instead of the recipe (reviews that said the pie was too sweet) so I did 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of 1/2, but it came out a bit tart. I should have just listened to the recipe. But, it was still very good. I poured the mixture over the apple before putting the lattice on instead of on top of the lattice, because I thought it would look better, and I think it did, and tasted yummy (despite being a little tart). The mixture got a bit thick while I was making it, so I poured in maybe 1/4 cup apple cider, which got it to a good consistency for me to pour it. Also, it took me 10 apples, not 8. Maybe my apples were a little on the small side. I also added a little cinnamon. I would use this recipe again, but use the full sugar called for.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Awesome pie...without the milk. I wanted to do a refrigerated pie, not a frozen pie, so I just cut out the milk, and it was delicious! It won first prize at my boyfriend's work Thanksgiving party! I used about a package and a half of cream cheese, because I noticed other recipes called for more than 8 oz (and I like cream cheese), but I kept the rest of the recipe the same (minus the milk). Another review said it was too much PB, and some more people on here said too much sugar, but I thought it was perfect. I was cautious after reading the reviews about it being super sweet, so I started with only a cup of sugar and it wasn't sweet enough, 1 1/4 still wasn't sweet enough, 1 1/2 (like the recipe calls for) was perfect. Same with the PB, I started with 3/4 cup, and it wasn't enough, it was too whip creamy. 1 cup is perfect. I highly recommend this pie, the refrigerated version is very good, especially with peanut butter cups added. It was very very good, I would make it again and again!

Pumpkin Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
Mmm...this was yummy. However, I'm not sure that the pumpkin itself really added much to the yumminess (it was really just the spices that came along with the pumpkin making it good). Even though using the pumpkin bread mix as the topping was tasty, but I'm wondering if maybe a spice cake mix or something would be even better. Something to try in the future. I took another reviewer's tip of adding a little apple cider. I added about 1/2 cup of cider, and it came out the perfect amount of juiciness. I also used more butter than the recipe called for, because the 4 tbs didn't seem like enough to make the crumbles when I was mixing it in. I ended up used about 6-7 tbs (most of a stick of butter) and it came out perfect. I also saw other people say that they couldn't find pumpkin butter, and I just want to say that I was able to find it at Trader Joe's, along with everything else to make this.
