Overview

What would life be without dessert? With this book, you'll never have to find out. Junior's Restaurants, the landmark chain with four locations on the East Coast, are nationally known for their award-winning cheesecakes. But Junior's has perfected other confections, too; here, more than 30 full-page, four-color photographs showcase 65 fabulous desserts. Authors Alan Rosen and Beth Allen present scaled-down kitchen-tested recipes so bakers can create their own restaurant-worthy delights. Never-before-published recipes include sundaes, ice cream sodas, pies, black 'n whites, cheesecakes, layer cakes, and cookies. A chapter on slimmed-down sweets will appeal to calorie-counters. Along with entertaining family tidbits, sidebars on "The Junior's Way" help bakers achieve great results, making Junior's best-loved recipes feel right at home in any kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Not ones to keep secrets, Rosen, the grandson of Junior's founder, and Allen ("Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook") start with the recipe that has been the backbone of Junior's success, the New York Cheesecake. They present a nice collection of recipes accompanied by historical and anecdotal sidebars that do not distract. If there are any surprises here it is the inclusion of a small group of soda fountain desserts, including egg creams, freezes, shakes, malts, and sundaes. The bulk of the recipes are mostly standards of the restaurant: tall cakes, down-homey pies, cupcakes, and tarts and cookies. The authors even reach into the archives of Junior's first menu and include a recipe for Nesselrode Whipped Cream Pie, a rum custard pie, largely absent from contemporary menus.
Verdict There is a definite New York influence here, seen in egg creams, rugelach, and desserts inspired by black-and-white cookies; however, with a troubleshooting section and baking hints along the way, this book could easily be used as a resource for standard desserts. The recipes are too good to passup"." —"Library Journal"
