Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting
Pretty good. I heeded the warning by several other reviews that itwas not a real chocolatey flavor and added some Hershey's Special Dark syrup and chocolate chips to enhance the flavor. I also had no grape jelly and used raspberry jam in it's stead. Very moist, great flavor and they looked perfect out of the oven. Did not use the frosting recipe as I wanted to make German chocolate frosting instead. Absolutely delicious!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting
I loved this! I actually forgot to add the butter but it still turned out great. I can only imagine that the butter would make it taste even better! Next time, lol.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
This was my first pie crust, too. I'm currently expecting and was really hankering for some pear and apple pie but I'd used my last store-bought crust on quiche last week. So I gave this a go. Unfortunately, the shortening I thought I had wasn't in the cupboard so I used 1 1/4 c of butter instead as another reviewer was short on shortening(lol) and used butter to make up the difference. I have to say that so far, so good! It does only seem to make 3 crusts, rather than the 4 mentioned in the recipe but I love crumble toppings so no worries there. Pie is baking now so I can't vouch for the taste yet, but I had no trouble with the texture (too wet, too dry) when rolling out. I even made a lattice/woven top for my pie since rolling the bottom was so easy. It looks amazing I can only imagine it'll taste great, too!
