Overview

With the latest and last word on fat- and cholesterol-reducing baking, Purdy offers a second innovative collection of dazzling desserts that will pass any taste test. No one will ever guess these winners are low in fat because they are so high in flavor and style. Purdy's recipes are clearly written, easy to follow, and include a nutritional analysis as well as notes on advance preparation. A Light Touch section with each recipe details her fat reduction technique and compares the low-fat recipe to a classic high-fat version. Look for helpful advice on equipment and pan substitutions as well as the full skinny on ingredients and how they relate to successful low-fat baking. A special index of selected recipes will appeal to cooks seeking treats for kids, gifts from the kitchen, seasonal holiday specialties, or desserts that are cholesterol free, lactose free, lower in sugar, and/or gluten free.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Talented baker Purdy (A Piece of Cake, LJ 8/89) is the author of another low-fat dessert book, Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too (Morrow, 1993). Unlike Have Your Cake, her new book includes all sorts of desserts: Glazed Ginger Tartlets, Mississippi Mud Pie, and more. Each recipe includes a section explaining exactly how Purdy lowered the fat from the prototype. Although a few have close to 30 percent calories from fat, or even slightly more, most have far less. Despite Americans' obsession with fat, many of us would rather have just a small piece of one of Purdy's indulgent full-fat desserts than a generous wedge of one of her newer low-fat creations. However, for those seeking recipes for low-fat sweets, this collection is one of the best.
