Publishers Text

Americans love dessert, any time of day and in any incarnation. Here is the bound-to-be-classic cookbook of more than 400 desserts that tantalize Americans across this country, whether they be traditional sweets, back-of-the-box gems, or inspired concoctions. Intrepid dessert hunter Judith Fertig has ventured far and wide to bring back these scrumptious treasures and gather them together for others to discover and enjoy. Every type of sweet satisfaction is here--cookies, cakes, pies, puddings, coblers, slumps, turnovers, cupcakes--even candy. Here is a sample of regional ingredients from every corner of the country that created some old favorites and new surprises:
  • New Mexican pine nuts make Ole Mole Cookies
  • Florida citrus fruits make Crazy Quilt Chocolate mousse with Fresh Orange Syrup
  • California wines make Christmas Ratafia
  • Kentucky bourbon makes Fresh Oranges in Bourbon Vanilla Syrup
  • New England maple syrup makes Maple and Hickory Nut Apple Crisp
