The All-American Dessert Book. Nancy Baggett. When Nancy Baggett set out to find the best homemade desserts in America, she knew just where to look. She turned to small-town cooks who are locally famous for their specialties, innkeepers and bakers whose treats lure guests back year after year, and church and bake-sale ladies whose creations are always snapped up at events.
Many of Nancy's finds have never been published, or even written down, before. I'd never have thought of that," Nancy writes in the introduction. Nancy has tested and retested each recipe in her own kitchen, so that you're assured of a flaky, easy-to-roll pie crust, a brownie with a perfect fudgy center and a deep chocolate aroma, and a silky-smooth cheesecake every time -- even if you've never baked before. Since the most memorable desserts are often the ones you make with your children, this book features plenty of projects for the whole family: rock crystal swizzle sticks, caramel apples, graham cracker "gingerbread" houses, and gifts such as brownie bars in a jar and quick heavenly hash fudge.
The All-American Dessert Book tells the intriguing story of America's fascination with sweets, complete with regional legends, behind-the-scenes recipe stories, fascinating snippets of baking history, and words of kitchen wisdom from cooks of the past. Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Martha Stewart's Cookies feature recipes for perennial pleasers like traditional chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin, as well as other sweet surprises, including Rum Raisin Shortbread, Peppermint Meringue Sandwiches with Chocolate Filling, and Lime Meltaways.
Each tantalizing recipe is accompanied by a lush, full-color photograph, so you never have to wonder how the cookie will look. Eileen Goudge. She has fond memories of the banana cake, apple crisp, and baked Alaska she loved as a child, and many of her novels feature temptations in the form of sweets, from the fine chocolates of Such Devoted Sisters to the icebox cookies of One Last Dance. She tells the story of each dish in mouthwatering detail, giving glimpses of her childhood and noting which treats are best for picnics, parties, and other special occasions.
There are recipes for classic cookies you would expect to find like rolled sugar cookies and brownies along with plenty of new and creative recipes, like Sicilian-Style Fig, Fennel Seed, and Pistachio Biscotti. There is even a chapter devoted to some of our favorites: savory cookies, crisps, and crackers.
Nancy has updated some older recipes by altering the methods of preparing them; sometimes replacing the traditional method of combining ingredients like using a stand mixer with a food processor or a one-bowl mixing method that begins with melting ingredients in the microwave. The dough for these cookies is first mixed in the food processor and then finished by hand.
One of the toppings that I made was an orange-scented sugar to decorate Cranberry, Orange, and Sage Cookies. The sugar was very festive and had the fragrance of a fresh orange. We did enjoy the Cranberry, Orange, and Sage Cookies and actually preferred them sans orange-scented sugar. They are rich and buttery, like a shortbread, and not too sweet. You could certainly serve them with cocktails for entertaining during the holiday season. I also made the Chocolate-Brandy Balls which combine crushed vanilla wafers, ground walnuts, powdered sugar, cocoa, and of course, brandy.
I would definitely add more brandy to the recipe next time to achieve a more pronounced brandy flavor and to keep them very moist. Be sure to use a good brandy for these, as the recipe suggests. Better quality brandy will give you a superior flavor.
If you love to make cookies, then this book will keep you occupied for awhile. There are over recipes, many with unique and surprising flavors; some that require minimal expertise one-bowl baking and others that are more challenging French Macarons. Nancy also includes recipes for creating Cookies-In-Jars Mixes which are perfect to give as holiday gifts. This cookbook would be an excellent present for the baker in your family.

This recipe takes the good old rum ball and gives it a little spin. The cookies look a bit like chocolate truffles and feature bittersweet chocolate, walnuts, and a slug of brandy instead of rum. If you like the slightly sophisticated combination of chocolate and orange, add the optional orange zest, too.
In a food processor, process the wafers, walnuts, cocoa powder, and orange zest if using until finely ground.
Add the chocolate morsels and powdered sugar to the processor; process until the chocolate is finely chopped. With the motor running, add the corn syrup and brandy through the feed tube, continuing to process until the ingredients are just thoroughly blended.
Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes to firm up slightly. Turn out the mixture onto a greased sheet of baking parchment. Shape the portions of the mixture using greased hands into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in the reserved crumb mixture until coated all over.
Space, slightly separated, on the tray. Let the cookies mellow, covered, at least overnight before serving. Storage: Store these, airtight and at room temperature, for 2 or 4 days; refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. They can be frozen, airtight, for up to 1 month. She is the author and owner of PratesiLiving.
