Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Best apple pie ever. Used 6 Mcintosh apples instead of Granny Smith. Added 1 tsp cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, 1 tbsp vanilla and decreased water by 1 tbsp as suggested by others. Not sure way some posters syrups over thickened unless they were over cooked. I brought mine to a boil then reduced to a simmer. Poured beautifully over apples I placed in the pie pan reserving about 1/4 cup to brush on top crust (did not lattice). If this pie is eaten warm it will be soupy not a bad thing if that is what you are after. I let mine come to room temp then microwaved to rewarm. Served with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and OMGOSH!

Blueberry Dump Cake
Wonderful and easy. Went with other reviewers about crumbling the butter into the cake mix. Delish!!

French Silk Chocolate Pie
This is my go to French Silk Pie recipe. I have made it using either a regular pastry crust and graham cracker crust. Both are divine and a personal preference based on what you want. Don't be afraid to whip it. I usually whip at least 3 min between eggs. If you notice the pre egg mixture is warm refrigerate for a few minutes prior to adding the eggs. The filling will be fluffier.
