Overview

Get ready for a renaissance of gingerbread! From the holiday classics — candy-covered houses and gingerbread men — to delicious waffles, biscotti, cookies, and cakes, Great Gingerbread offers a delectable new take on an age-old favorite — just in time for the most festive time of year. But gingerbread is a great idea all year round. The beloved combination of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg that creates gingerbread's distinctive flavor can be used to make all kinds of irresistible treats: for a modern take on the classic cookie, Chocolate-Dipped Gingerbread Biscotti with tea on a spring afternoon; to make the most of summer fruit, a Peach Blueberry Crumble and Gingerbread Crisp; or for a lazy autumn brunch, Gingerbread Scones with Orange Honey Butter, or Gingerbread Pancakes with Golden Pear Compote and Maple Cream. Illustrated with ravishing color photographs, Great Gingerbread is brimming with delicious ideas to brighten any day of the year.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From: House & Garden

The beauty of gingerbread and of this book is the way they mix the sweet with a touch of spice—the recipe for Tigertail Val's Sweet Gingerbread, for instance, includes coffee and cognac. Add a little lore, like ginger's utility as a thirteenth-century "nobleman's antacid," and you have a delectable dish indeed. The author's answer to overdecorated (you might say, tasteless) gingerbread houses is her recollection of one from her childhood that looked like Bing Crosby's mansion in Beverly Hills— including its pool of aqua sheet-gelatin—and her homespun Lickety Split Log Cabin.
