Pillsbury: Best Desserts (Pillsbury) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When most people hear the name Pillsbury, they immediately think of luscious, irresistible desserts. For more than 125 years, the Pillsbury Company has been providing Americans with the best foods, and now they proudly present their extensive collection of exceptional dessert recipes. Pillsbury: Best Desserts has a dish for every sweet tooth, from Golden Pecan Pie to Apple Raspberry Cobbler to Pumpkin Cheesekcake with Praline Sauce to Banana Brownie Split Sundae.

The Pillsbury cookbooks are classics because they provide more than just great recipes--they are valuable sources of cooking and baking information. The first chapter of Pillsbury: Best Desserts, Desserts Basics, provides a thorough introduction to making perfect desserts, including general information about common equipment and ingredients, as well as more specific information, such as how to test a cheesecake for doneness and how to distinguish a cobbler from a crisp or a crumble. The remaining chapters cover the range of possible desserts to satisfy any craving--Cakes and Frostings; Pies and Tarts; Crisps, Cobblers and Other Baked Desserts; Cheesecakes; Mousses, Puddings, Trifles and Other Refrigerated Desserts; Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts; Bake-Off® Desserts; Cookies, Bars and Brownies; and (to top it all off) Sauces--all accompanied by 110 mouth-watering full-color photographs.
With Pillsbury behind the recipes, home cooks can expect delicious, successful desserts for every occasion. Pillsbury: Best Desserts is a must-have on any cookbook fan's shelves.

350 top dessert recipes for anyone who's ever wanted to have the last course first!
