Wonderful! I used plumped golden raisins, chopped pecans and instead of biscuit dough I used fresh bread dough...HEAVEN!

Easy and quite flaky! Made more than enough for one double crust pie plus a single. Will use again!

Wonderful way to use green tomatoes from my garden! Made "Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust" and followed recipe and even my husband (who swore he did not care for mincemeat pie) enjoyed it. Will be making more to can for later use!

Liked the concept but it was a bit "breadier" than I had imagined. Good flavor though. I baked it about 20 mins longer than recipe stated to fully solidify the center.

Made for my last Super Bowl party and served with croistini and hearty crackers...was a big hit! Please go by others suggestions and bake ahead and reheat before enjoying. It really did bring out more flavor.

Added 1.5 tsp. vanilla, 2 Tbl. powdered sugar and 1 cup Heath toffee bits. Rolled into logs and refrigerated until firm. Sliced into 1/4 inch cookies and baked at 350* for 13 mins. LOVED the buttery of the lightly browned edges and the toffee. A keeper!

Ground the pecans fairly fine. Used salted butter. Doubled the vanilla. Rolled into 1" balls and baked them at 350* for 12 mins. Double rolled in confectioner sugar. NICE!! Second batch I added a Chai Spice blend to the cookie dough and that was especially yummy!

Meringue II
Rating: Unrated
Islandflea's rating

Easy to make and pretty but it really is more a marshmallow creme than a meringue. Edit/Update the next day: Ok, changing my rating based on magic that happened overnight. My husband and I both agreed yesterday that the meringue was rather too similar to marshmallow creme which was not what we were looking for to top our Christmas pie. Come Christmas dessert... its texture is different today! Not sure if it has to do with the browning or sitting overnight but today it is much better! Good in fact!
