The following cooking recipes will raise your crafting skill from level forty-two to level fifty-four (42.0 - 54.0). Be sure to take your test between level forty-eight and level fifty. If you do not take your test, you will not be able to get past level fifty. The synthesis test item for level fifty is Apple Pie.

Your Pie Dough comes in handy here with this wonderful recipe. Pies in general sell pretty well and you should not have a problem finding a market for your results. However because there are many better pies, these might sell a little slow. If your AH sales do not move very fast, these will sell pretty well on a mule too. It can be expensive to make these depending on how you get your ingredients. Be sure to get your sugar, cinnamon and faerie apples from the venders if you can. If you find this recipe to be too expensive for the result sales, try the alternative suggestion below.

I suggest getting advanced support for a couple of levels to ensure as few losses as possible. Save one of these for your skill test.

If you find that Apple Pie does not sell too well on your server or you want a recipe to alternate with while going through these levels, I would suggest these cookies. They use some of the same ingredients as the Apple Pie, so it would be easy to combine the efforts to get results from both recipes. These cookies are very useful and you will find they sell pretty good at the AH.

These cap at 55, however I stopped them at 54 to go right into Yagudo drinks. If you still have some Butter left over, this is another good recipe to use it in. The beaugreens are bought from a vender, so it is a fairly cheap recipe. You will find a loss when you sell these back to the vender, but they are fast and easy to synth through quickly.

This recipe, while helping gap through these levels, is a complete loss. They might sell in Windurst because they are a Guild Point item. If you want to try and AH them, that town is your best bet. Unfortunately these levels offer very few recipes that are fast and easy investments with good results, so it is best to tough it out with the Beaugreen Sautee.
