Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Rock scones

    • maasr on December 10, 2016

      This is my favorite scone recipe from the book. Works great with whatever dried fruit you want to use, or even plain and served with butter or jam.

  • Challah

    • maasr on December 10, 2016

      Great recipe! Not very difficult way to get way better than storebought challah

  • Blueberry lattice pie

    • Cinnabeenz on July 25, 2013

      Best blueberry pie filling. Ever.

  • Strawberry rhubarb pie with woven lattice top

    • jzanger on May 17, 2011

      Amazing flavor, great crust, but next time I will use more corn starch because the filling was VERY runny. Aside from that, it was perfect.

  • Peach crisp

    • chawkins on September 25, 2016

      The topping is not too crispy, but I do like the sliced almonds in it.

  • Decorated gingerbread cookies

    • stockholm28 on December 20, 2015

      Nice gingerbread cookie recipe. Not as dry as other recipes that I have made in past.
