Raspberry Chocolate Supremes
This five-star rating is one of the easiest I've ever given. We were amazed at how sublime these tasted, and a doubled recipe lasted just a day. The only changes I made (other than doubling everything) were using an entire 10-ounce jar of raspberry preserves (which has a net effect of increasing the recipe by one ounce since I doubled it}, adding all the layers just after taking the crust out of the oven and then refrigerating overnight, substituting cream for the milk, and substituting dark chocolate for the milk chocolate. I will make more this morning, and I will change nothing. I recommend using the crust as specified. It added a flakiness that served as an excellent counterpoint to the richness of the white chocolate and cream cheese.

French Onion Soup Gratinee
I made this exactly as specified by Jersey Tomato in her review of the recipe, and it was good--but I've had better. I prefer slowly roasting beef bones and then using them and lots of water to slowly reduce for a day to make a rich beef broth and use that significantly reduced, rich broth as a base. I found the soup's color to be slightly off from all the red onions and chicken broth, and it wasn't rich enough. I would say that this soup is about the quality of soups found at better chain restaurants. I had never tried onion soup with Asiago cheese before, and I am hooked on that now--very good choice.
