Buttermilk Chess Pie
Chess pie is wonderful stuff. Anyone know if there's a difference if using cultured buttermilk (cultured skim milk) vs. old-fashioned buttermilk (cultured milk left after butter-making)?

Lemon Square Bars
These were wonderful! I did tweak the recipe slightly. We like a thick crust and I wanted to run it up the side of the pan a bit, so I increased the crust by half again and added a quarter teaspoon or so of kosher salt and a few drops of good vanilla extract. The vanilla really makes a nice "backdrop" for the lemon custard and the salt sharpens the sweetness of the shortbread and the vanilla. I used fresh lemons and added the zest to the custard, also increased the juice to around 3/4 C or a bit more. I'll definitely be making these again. Yum yum!

New Duchess Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream Frosting
This was good, but I did have to modify it. Like others, my cake was done in 25 minutes, and I was very thankful for the reviews or I might have walked away from the oven and ended up with a burnt cake! I split the batter into two nine inch rounds, so that may have had something to do with it. Otherwise the recipe was great, tasted just like the spice cake I remember. The spice ratio was PERFECT but overall not quite strong enough for me, so I would probably increase the spices by half next time, just to my own preference. I didn't have any maple extract so I tried substituting some of the sugar in the frosting for real maple syrup. The texture was fine but the maple flavor was hardly noticeable--just a warning for anyone else who might try the same thing ;0). Otherwise it was great. Thanks for the recipe!
