Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
Based on other reviews I used this recipe as a starting point so I don't know if my 5 star review is really earned. I felt the recipe would be to plain without some spices added so heres what I did. I used ready made crust by Mrs Smith. I added 1 teasp. vanilla, 1 teasp. cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, and 4 ground cloves. I poured the mixture over the apples and put the top crust over like a traditional pie. My husband loved the end results.

Pear Salad with Raspberry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
I served this as the first course for New Years Eve dinner party. It's so pretty. You either like this kind of salad or not. Those who do loved this, and even the guest that don't care for this sort of thing did eat a little. I used red pears and kept the skins on for color. I used low-sugar raspberry preserves and light sour cream. I added a little water to the dressing since it was thick. I also sprinkled store bought glazed pecans on top with the fresh raspberries and BB bits. I did not add any cheese, and we didn't miss it. I made them all ahead on thier plates & kept in the frige til served. Then I just drizzled the dressing on top. Easy, pretty and just like a fine restaurant. Thanks for sharing.

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I made 4 biscotti recipes I found here today. My 5 tasters said this was the best. I didn't change a thing and don't need to. The glaze is a nice touch. Thanks for passing it along.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
This one is a keeper! I did coarsely chop the Hazelnuts as suggested by another review. It helps from the cookies breaking when you slice. Next time I may even add an extra dash of cinnamon. Thanks for sharing.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I love cookies & Biscotti's are my favorites. Today I made 4 new ones I found at this site, this was not the best one. It has a nice light flavor, but almost to light. All I could taste was the pistachio. I had 5 friends taste & they agreed. I ended up putting a melted powder suger & butter drizzle on top to add flavor. It made them look pretty too. Next time I will double the vanilla & almond extract. I also made 3 logs instead of two. They were a nice size and you get more cookies. I will double the recipe completly next time for more cookies since your going through the time to make them.
