Reviews about Recipes in this Book

  • Brown sugar vanilla ice cream

    • Not So Humble Pie

      The custard and vanilla will remind you of an excellent french vanilla ice cream but the addition of brown sugar sets it apart, giving the ice cream character and richness.

Publishers Text

Everyone has a favorite sweet treat. Whether it's a delicious brownie or the perfect mouthwatering chocolate chip cookie, simple, homespun treats are some of our most beloved. Melissa Murphy has a love of desserts that started when she was born on Thanksgiving Day - her mother refused to go to the hospital until the two pies she'd baked had been served. Now, Melissa brings that passion to the loyal devotees of her popular, award-winning Sweet Melissa Pâtisserie shops.

What makes Melissa's desserts and pastries special is that they are treats we all know and love with a fresh spin that make them more delicious than ever before. In The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, Melissa shares her simple, tried-and-true techniques and her French-influenced, American-style baking approach. There are desserts for everyday, such as Double Dark Chocolate Cherry Cookies, and for more special occasions.

Warm and spirited, The Sweet Melissa Baking Book also contains charming anecdotes from Melissa's life of baking. With more than one hundred recipes, the simple treats in this book will make each day and every special occasion sweeter.
