This cookbook is filled to overflowing with the same type of recipes many of us have written in notebooks and on recipe cards that read Aunt Mae's this or Grandmas' that. Recipes that are tried and true and passed down through the generations because the are loved and asked for by all. It is aptly named because this cookbook will become an heirloom to be passed on through the family from generation to generation.
Divided into the seasons the recipes are broken down seasonal ingredients, but will evoke memories of your own family get togethers. In Winter I found a recipe for Snow Cream, something I remember my grandmother making when we visited Michigan in the winter and a Double Ginger Cake that Great-Aunt Edith would make for me every year that I could not get her to share. When I made it I was 10 again sitting in her kitchen waiting in anticipation for the cake to cool so I might have a piece. The only difference was she used orange juice instead of lemon, but I found lemon was quite tasty too.
My family is always pleased when I review a cookbook because they get to try so many different dishes, but they all agreed this is one we needed to be sure and place an order for quick delivery. Each of remembers at least one of the recipes with a fondness from our childhood and family reunions. Many of those who made them originally are gone now, but with The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook they come alive once more for us through the memories these dessert bring to mind.

Would recommend this dessert book
I love this dessert book. It's NOT fussy or stuffy like others but in simple terms with pictures of the desserts. Just received this book so have not been able to try out the desserts but have so many marked to try. I only wish their farm was near by. This would be a great gift for someone that likes heirloom recipes. Also like how the book is divided into seasons.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great Recipes, Beautiful Book
This is not just another dessert cookbook. The care & thought that had gone into this book is evident from cover to cover. I especially liked not having to look at prepared recipes on every page, but rather interesting photos.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
