Peach Upside Down Cake I
I made this recipe in an 8 inch round pan, with the peaches in a spiral so it looked really lovely. My main problem was that in the round pan, by 25 minutes at 375 the outside of the cake was burning, while underneath it was totally raw. I lowered the temperate to 350 and cooked in awhile longer, which worked (although the outside layer was too overdone) but if I try it again I'm definitely cooking it at 350 instead. I also added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp almond extract as others suggested. It tasted good, but was definitely a heavier coffee cake type cake.

Peppermint Meringues
This was my first attempt at meringues (well second since I screwed up the first batch!), and it turned out pretty well. I did add the peppermint extract as other people suggested (only 1/2 tsp) and you definitely have to fold it in after everything else is done or you will screw it up like I did the first time. They were really good though!

Buried Cherry Cookies
The cookies were pretty good, I did make some modifications to the frosting while I was making it though. I increased the sweetened condensed milk to at least 1/3 cup to make it creamier and more manageable, and added a bit more cherry juice. I also cut the corner off a ziploc bag and used that to pipe that the frosting onto the cookies which worked really well. Overall I think the chocolate was too bitter for me though, next time I will probably use semi-sweet chocolate instead!
