Pumpkin Crumb Cake
I made orig recipe as written, but topping was WAY dry, not near enough butter to make a nice crumbly topping from that much dry ingredient. Someone else suggested cream cheese, which i used about 3 or 4T in addition to the 3T butter. Baked 350 for 50mins in a 9x13 nonstick pan coated in veg spray. Topping was still a little dry even w like 1/2c butter+crm cheese mixed in. The end result was good, not great. very sweet, like triple pumpkin pie sweet, CANDY sweet. Too rich and more yellow cake flavor than pumpkin. This was a lot of cinnamon, which for me was not enough layers of spice flavors, sort of 1 dimensional, and very little pumpkin flavor. The pumpin was kind of an after taste on your palette, but mostly the white sugar and yellow cake batter overwhelms. Next time will try some modifications, a little less sugar in the whole recipe (1/3c ea), and definately double the filling to make in a 9x13 pan. I may even just try Libby's pre-spiced pumpkin pie can mix (brown label 30oz can) because their spice IMO is just right. I might also try a white cake mix and add a touch of vanilla. And I think the topping needs some TLC, needs brown sugar (may try half each brown and white, enough to equal 1/3c total sugar) and a pinch of spices.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is the first yr I tried a choc chip recipe other than Nestle Tollhouse. Was nervous about the vanilla pudding idea, but in truth these cookies were really great in the end (although got a mixed review from family - they liked them but pref Nestle)! Followed the orig recipe as written for the 1st try (except only had 1 box of vanilla pudding on hand, used 1 box coconutcream too). I wanted to omit walnuts but wasn't sure how that'd affect the end result so kept them in this batch, but now I think the texture will be fine without them. I may substitute nuts w/toasted coconut in a future batch, not for fear of flat cookies but as a flavor pref. This recipe was EXTREMELY STICKY, even after chilling in fridge for hrs before dropping on sheets. I used a teasp (dip in cold water evry othr drop) but still had to wipe/wash spoon often. To cut the stickiness i may try (half?) butter and butter flavor crisco, also wanna try cocoa powder (in place of 1/4 c flour) and use choc pudding mix for a double choc chip. Must be pudding that makes it so gooey to work with. I never usually use a scoop for drop cookies, but for this recipe I'd definately recommend one (the kind with a release handle to drop dough off scoop). The sticky handling and the walnuts are the only reasons I gave this a 4 star rating instead of 5... Great recipe, though I still have to make some Tollhouse for the fam, I WILL be using this again, thanks for sharing!

Apple Crisp III
I substituted a few ingredients with things I had on hand, I used Honey Nut Crunch cereal and instant apple cinnamon oatmeal. This crisp was AMAZING (served warm over vanilla ice cream - will be even better over cinnamon ice cream!) and got rave reviews at the holidays!
