My Mother's Southern Desserts: More than 200 Treasured Family Recipes for Holiday and Everyday Celebrations by James Villas, Dennis Gottlieb

Following the success of their first book together, A Mothers' Southern Kitchen, Jim and his mother, Martha Pearl, offer 200 recipes for scrumptious Southern treats. There are sweets for any holiday or special event — Christmas, church suppers, birthdays, weddings, Valentine's Day, bridge luncheons, cocktail parties — even the Kentucky Derby! The recipes are utterly delightful from their titles to their delectable tastes and textures — try Boozy Mud Pie, Pistachio Snowballs, Coconut Igloos, Trump Toffee Cookies, Caramel Chewies, Satan Chocolate Pound Cake with Fudge Frosting, Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream, or Blueberry Flummery.

Jim and Martha Pearl have the perfect treat for any occasion. Planning a New Year's Parry? Why not bring Bourbon Cream Mold with Shaved Chocolate? Going to a cookout? Bake a Banana Split Pie. Need a "friend-ship gift"? Give that special someone Aunt Ella's Buttermilk Gingerbread. Whether you're attending a Mother's Day brunch (Sunshine Chiffon Cake with Orange Butter Frosting) or a Thanksgiving dinner (Cajun Sweet Potato Pecan Pie), or visiting a sick relative (Sweet Maa's "Get Well" Baked Custard), you'll find that perfect treat right here. In each of these recipes, Jim and Martha Pearl prove that they sure know how to enjoy dessert down South!

Highly recommended! I cannot say enough good things about this masterpiece. This book contains some of the most amazing recipes--just like your grandmother's. The Coconut Cake, Eggnog Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, and Orange Slice Cake are unparalled. I have catered a number of functions with these delicious items and they have received RAVE reviews...This is by far my favorite dessert cookbook! A must-have for every Southern kitchen.
