Each chapter includes a “Basics” section with the techniques needed for that type of dessert, so anyone can master these pastries, soufflés, custards, cakes, meringues, ice creams, granitas, sauces, toppings, and more!
This big book of Good Housekeepingfavorites offers a wide range of dessert recipes from which to choose, some as homey as Apple Crumble Pie, others as sophisticated as Hazelnut Dacquoise. There are color photographs throughout, and dozens of "Test Kitchen Tips." Recipes also include prep times and nutritional information, and a brief introduction covers ingredients, equipment, and techniques. For all baking collections.
Bakers of all skill levels will appreciate this inclusive collection of classic recipes, clearly rendered; whether they want to craft an old-fashioned Key Lime Pie or a simpler, ice cream-based version called a Cool Lime Pie, they'll find expert guidance here. Though this volume doesn't dive too deep into any particular genre, virtually all the classics can be found: simple macaroons, Devil's Food Cake, Banana Cream Pie, Lemon Bars, and nine varieties of cheesecakes are included, as well as more imaginative riffs like Black-And-White Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Custard Sauce, Hazelnut Dacquoise, and Banana Crepes with Maple-Walnut Sauce. Clever tips will help cooks keep chopped nuts from sinking into batters (toss them with a little flour), separate eggs (best when the eggs are cold), and whip up pastry dough in a food processor (though the traditional, by-hand method is also included). Recipes for pastry dough are thoughtfully scaled for various tart and pie shells, and variations on standards are grouped together helpfully. This thorough, well-thought-out collection represents the Good Housekeeping brand at its best, and makes an excellent choice for budding cooks and bakers.
