Pastry Cream
I lost the recipe that I copied from an old Le Cordon Bleu cookbook, so I decided to use this. Very good decision. The flavor was identical; not too sweet, smooth, and it went well with anything I made. My only problem was that it never thickened properly. I chilled it and tried everything I could, but it never thickened past a runny pudding.

Fluffy Pancakes
These are nothing like the slightly-too-firm boxed mix pancakes. These fluff just enough to make them the perfect little syrup sponges I love. As others have said, I would double the recipe. These are just too good.

Aunt Sally's Cocoa Drops
These tasted like brownies, with the texture of of a light cake, in a easy to eat cookie shape. I am fascinated by this. The flavor is mild, just enough to satisfy a sweets/chocolate craving without being overwhelming. My family and I ate them alone or broken up with vanilla ice cream. I needed to bake these for 7 minutes at 375 degrees before I was happy with the texture, but that is my oven's fault, not the recipe.
