Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
The first time I made these, they were so delicious. However, the second time I made them they were super hard. I don't know what happened. I don't eat eggs so I replaced the eggs with a banana.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
This recipe is one of my absolute favorites; they literally melt in your mouth! So many people who usually don't really eat cookies have come up to me and raved about these! I usually halve the recipe, use about only 3/4 cup of sugar, and replace the eggs with a banana (I don't eat eggs). If the batter comes out a little dry, I usually add a bit of soymilk.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
This was the first shortbread recipe I ever tried and one that I am going to keep forever! What I like to add to the recipe is orange or lemon flavor - the juice and the zest from the rind. For Halloween I used this recipe to make those shortbread owls that's all aflutter on pintrest/internet - super big hit! For the holidays I used a cookie cutter to make star shapes, and after they finished baking I wrapped 5 cookies in colored cellophane and a ribbon to give as gifts to friends, family, and neighbors. Some lessons I learned from trying this recipe: - I tried to make a vegan butter batch but that did not go well at all - they shriveled up and became super hard - Using a cookie gun for this recipe is incredibly difficult - you have to work the dough a lot and make it more moist, which may or may not take away from the final shortbread texture. - Rolling out the dough and using a cookie cutter works better, but again, it takes some extra effort (and a lot of extra flour!)
