Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies
These lemony cookies were sweet, chewy, and delicious! Our entire family enjoyed this perfect summer snack, which was a delightful change from the usual sugar cookie. Followed directions exactly, only rolled in half sugar, half yellow sugar sprinkles for fun and color.

Caley's Classic Zucchini Bread
I have baked this zucchini bread twice within one week, now, and it is absolutely delicious. My three kids are already asking me to bake it again. The first time, I made no changes, and the bread was perfect - sweet, hearty, and nutty with the perfect amount of cinnamon. The second time, I replaced 1/3 of the sugar with Splenda, andit was equally delicious, if a tiny bit too sweet.

Vanilla Wafers II
Delicious, crispy, buttery little cookies! I followed the recipe exactly. However, after chilling the dough for several hours, I found that it was far too sticky to roll out, even with parchment paper or a bit of extra flour. So, like previous posters, I whipped out my pastry bag and piped out the dough directly onto the cookie sheet. It took a bit more work that way, but the result was a few batches of delicious cookies which tasted exactly like vanilla wafers should. Perfect afternoon snack for my kids and their friends, who could not stop munching them.
