Your Most Nostalgic Treats Are About to Get a Lot More Exciting!

If you dream about the sweets and treats of your childhood but want something a little more special than the standard chocolate chip cookie or vanilla ice cream, look no further than Emma Duckworth’s collection of 55 scrumptious recipes. Each one has been carefully crafted to evoke the fond, comforting memories of days gone by while lending irresistible depths of flavor to even the most familiar desserts.

Delight in the Spelt Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies, made even more indulgent thanks to the nutty additions of browned butter and spelt flour. Rediscover the decadence of molten lava cakes, this time filled with silky peanut butter for an exceptional take on an old-time favorite. Beat the ho-hum taste of store-bought donuts with the pillowy-soft, irresistibly sweet Blackberry-Glazed Brioche Donuts. Or perhaps you’re remembering warm, easy afternoons once school let out for the summer? Let the Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles, Tropical Mango and Coconut Froyo or Kids’ Fave Neapolitan No-Churn Ice Cream bring those times right back to your tastebuds in fresh and exciting ways.

Dessert has truly never been more comforting or crave-worthy than with these dreamy and inspired takes on nostalgic recipes. With each new bake and every savored bite, you’ll revisit your most treasured memories—and make some new ones.
