Chef John's Caramel Apple Pie
After reading all the reviews, I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding 3 T cornstarch to the apples to try to prevent it from being too watery. The pie was totally cool before I cut it, but it was filled with water anyways. After draining off the liquid, the pie cut very nicely and presented beautifully. I think perhaps I used the wrong variety of apple (MacIntosh)and will try the recipe again with Gala or Granny Smith. It was VERY tasty.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
No problems at all with recipe as written. Eight minutes was perfect. Definitely freeze the peanut butter cups. In fact, I used both chocolate and white chocolate, and I unwrapped the chocolate ones before putting in the freezer, and as an afterthought I threw a bag (unwrapped) of white chocolate in the freezer the evening before I planned on making the cookies. They were much easier to unwrap when frozen. I used a 1-1/4" cookie scoop, which made the process VERY easy and got 52 balls out of one batch of dough. I used mini paper muffin cups and did not have to worry about them coming out of the pan. I let the cookie rest in the pan directly out of the oven for just a couple of minutes before putting in the frozen p.b.cup, and had no trouble with the cookies cracking. A few minutes later, after they had melted, I sprinkled colored jimmies on top.

Quick and Easy Summer Limoncello Cake
This is a very nice cake. I did add a tsp. of lemon extract after reading reviews and I will do that when I make the cake again. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars (because I made an addition). The cake reminded us of a pound cake, and I served it with blueberry sauce as another reviewer did. I must say I thought this was a bundt cake because of the picture, and didn't discover it was an 8" cake until the day of my event. I made it in the bundt pan anyways, and it was small of course because there wasn't enough batter, but it was still pretty, and good. Next time I will increase the ingredients by 50% and I'm hoping it will be a normal-sized bundt cake with that change.
