Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle
Well, I have to admit that I was suspicious that something so good, could be so easy...but it was! My Husband is a diabetic, so I replaced the sugar in the recipe with "Splenda Granular" and I used the salted and roasted peanuts that you can buy at Costco and omitted the salt in the recipe. I spread it out on a silipat covered baking sheet which worked great and I also used a glass measuring cup like many people recommended. My Husband happened to buy me some peanut brittle for Christmas and when we did a comparison, this one was by far, the better of the two. The peanut to brittle ratio is much better and it tastes more like peanuts...the store bought is much sweeter tasting. And I just let all of the dishes soak in hot soapy water and clean up was a breeze!

Gluehwein
I had the pleasure of going to Germany several years ago, and this brought back some wonderful memories of that trip. This recipe is absolutely fantastic! My Husband is a diabetic, so I replaced the sugar with "Splenda Granular" and the recipe turned out great! Thanks for sharing your recipe Else!

Pumpkin Spice Cookie
After reading some of the other reviews, I added 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 cup chocolate chips. I used a size 40 cookie scoop and baked them for 15 minutes. These cookies have been a huge hit! One of my friends has tasted dozens of different types of cookies that I've made, and she told me she thought this was the best thing I've ever made! These are super delicious and super easy...a definate keeper!
