The taste is very rich from the butter and pecans. I loved the texture, moist and yet light. If I could change one thing it would be to flour my pans. I have pretty nice baking pans, and I buttered them as instructed, but when it came time to lift them out, the middle stuck to the pans. (Nothing a little frosting can not cover up. Other than that,"

In my opinion, the cookies are a real treat. The secret to making the perfect batch is boiling them for the 1 minute required time (and 20 seconds longer for me). This cooks the gritty out of the sugar and allows the cookie to firm when done. The QUICK oats are really the only type that work in any no bake cookie recipe. I always add 3 2/3 cups of"

This was nothing like what I thought it was going to be. I followed the recipe exactly, only I put the dough in a muffin tops pan (it almost looks like a cake like cookie) as my kids prefer them to regular muffins. I baked them for 20 minutes and after spraying the pan generously, they still stuck to the pans. So I cut out parchment paper to fit t"

Last night I made these for the second time. They are superb!! My kids asked me to make them again soon. I added a grated mix of jack and cheddar cheese this time as I had no sharp on hand. This time the taste was even better than when I used the sharp cheese, and they were moister than before- when cooking them on the stove you have to be careful"

This is the 2nd time I have made this cheesecake, and each time has been wonderful. This first time I added much less orange and lemon zest thinking it was too much, but I was wrong. Using the whole lemon and orange zest made a big difference in flavor, and I would recommend following the instructions exactly. I also thought the 500F temp. seemed "

Reviewed Winning Recipe Raspberry Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Frosting

Apr 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I changed this recipe quite a bit, just due to not having a key ingredient to begin with. I didn't have the raspberry flavoring. So I used 1/2 cup mashed locally grown raspberries in the cupcake recipe. When they came out of the oven they looked a bit gray. But worst, the flavor was barely there. So I used a raspberry pie filling, and scooped out...

Apr 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It was like the frosting my Mom used to make. Perfect. Not too sweet, not too runny. I used it to frost raspberry cupcakes, with a raspberry filling, topped with a cream cheese champagne raspberry topping, the frosted with this butter cream frosting. Sounds like a lot of sweet, but the tartness in the raspberries with the creaminess of the cream...
