Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Cookies
I have made this recipe several times since finding it on this site. It is one of the standards that I now use for the "wow" factor. I have one question, though. Was anyone else able to make more than 2 dozen cookies when following this recipe? I cannot seem to get near the four dozen number the recipe says it can make. Also I wanted to say that when I roll these out I use two sheets of parchment paper instead of flour, and I have no problem with sticky dough. In fact it is easy to clean up too! Thanks again, Betty!

These were some of the best treats I ever made! I had to put more than double the chocolate, though. Never can have too much. My kids now have a favorite that they will ask for year after year. I brought them to two different potlucks and some of the people were actually fighting over them! I would give this recipe an eleven out of ten. I also couln't believe how easy they were to make. I have very limited skills in the baking area.

I had never made a bundt cake before. This one was out of this world!! I made it with the butter-pecan cake mix instead of the yellow cake mix, it tasted so good, I had to make two in one day!!!! I have never done that before!!! The frosting was awesome, but to add some professional looking touch, I sprinkled the top of the frosted cake with finely chopped pecans. It looked like I bought it some where!!!!

Chocolate Candy Cookie Cups
I can't believe how easy this recipe was to make! It looked just like the picture, too. The taste was also a short moment of pure joy. This is a new favorite in our family. I will make these for the next big holiday get together. Thanks again Betty Crocker!

Monogrammed Cream-Filled Cupcakes
This recipe makes me look good! I made these just like the recipe called for, except I didn't have whipped chocolate frosting for the top. I used Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy frosting. It tasted super! Just like a Hostess Cupcake!!! I made these for my son's birthday, and my daughter has already put her request in. I will definitely make these again and again.

Cinnamon Swirl Cookies
This is a new favorite. If I can make them, anyone can. The glaze came out a little thin, so I drizzled it on in two applications. The tip at the bottom of the recipe really worked great. Even my eight year old could do this one with very few directions. The taste is unbelievable! It tastes just like a cinnamon roll. Thanks, Betty Crocker, and thanks to all the reviewers who helped convince a novice to give this recipe a try!!!!
