Candy Corn Cookies
These were really cute! I used yellow food coloring instead of the semisweet chocolate so that the colors matched those of real candy corn. I only cooked mine for about 4 or 5 minutes, and they held their shape fairly well. This will definitely be a repeat in the following years.

Warm Caramel Apple Cake
Although it didn't look very much like the picture (it looked more like pineapple upside down cake), it still tasted amazing! I didn't use any nuts, and for the frosting I whipped about a cup of whipping cream and combined it with a whole container of Whipped Fluffy Frosting. This is an excellent autumn treat!

Blueberry Fold-Over Coffee Cake
Soooo delicious! I didn't have any lemons or lemon juice on hand, so I wasn't able to add those two ingredients, but even without that extra flavor it was amazing! Definitely a repeat in our kitchen.

Southwest Mac and Cheese
I really liked this variation of the usual, plain old mac and cheese, although I did make some adjustments. I preboiled the pasta, using only 1 cup of milk when simmering the mixture. I also only used half of the corn that the recipe called for.

Peanut Butter and Jam Bars
It definitely would have been too much peanut butter if I had added it to the frosting, so I left it out. Also, I think I could cut down on the jam a bit. Other than that, they were wonderful!

Slow-Cooker Salsa Chili
I halved the chili powder, knowing that the salsa alone would add plenty of spice. Very yummy!

Cherry Swirl Brownies
My family really liked this recipe, but I found it a bit lacking. It wasn't worth chopping up the cherries because I couldn't taste them in the cheesecake. Also, if I make these again, I'll bake them in 13x9 pan so that they're not so thick. They were good, but not amazing.

Very good! Just make sure you cook the topping long enough; mine turned out a bit doughy :P

Cinnamon Swirl Cookies
Excellent! These cookies, which I did not think too much of a hassle to make, turned out delicious! Definitely a true winner!
