The Complete Baking Cookbook provides the inspiration to explore the wonderful world of baking. And of course it includes the tested recipes to make it easy and tasty. Written by baker and pastry chef extraordinare George Geary, this collection of 350 easy-to-follow recipes offers a tantalizing variety of goodies from pies, tarts, cobblers and crisps, to cookies, cheesecakes and holiday pastries.

Here's just a small sampling:

  • Honey apple spice muffins; orange macadamia rolls; jumbo cinnamon rolls
  • Sweet potato pie; apple cherry cobbler; Passover honey cheesecake

What really sets this baking book apart from others is that there is a special section with comprehensive material for each category of baked good.

With hundreds of recipes and an abundance of luscious photographs, this book will be cherished by home bakers everywhere.
