Amazing Dairy-Free Desserts

A Comprehensive Collection of Dairy-Free Desserts
and Information for all Occasions

by Penny Wantuck Eisenberg

 
Amazing Dairy-Free Desserts Many people living with lactose intolerance find the temptation of holiday parties and family gatherings almost too much to bear.

A plate of cookies can be a minefield full of butter. A beautifully frosted cake can send them home feeling anything but beautiful. At the times of the year where we celebrate with food, those with restricted diets and food allergies often feel left out. The desire to indulge and enjoy the sweeter side of life goes beyond the traditional holidays—it lasts all year.

But now, those suffering from lactose intolerance and dairy allergies can have their cake and eat it too. Amazing Dairy-Free Desserts: A Comprehensive Collection of Dairy-Free Desserts and Information for all Occasions is a unique cookbook filled with easy-to-prepare, rich-tasting desserts. The book features carefully selected and taste-tested non-dairy ingredients in a user-friendly format. The cookbook, which is also kosher, is a perfect addition to any culinary library.

"Writing this book has been a great pleasure because, like 50 million other Americans, I am lactose intolerant," says Eisenberg. "As a food professional, who must sometimes use dairy, I've had many uncomfortable hours after consuming it, and know all too well the pain and embarrassment of this problem. I developed the recipes in this cookbook carefully so that those suffering as I do will know that what comes out of their kitchen is safe to eat. In fact, these desserts are so good no one will know they are dairy-free."

Eisenberg has included important information for people suffering from milk allergies: what's safe to eat, what to stay away from, and where to buy products. Readers will also find general information on ingredient selection and preparation technique.

"All of these original, from-scratch recipes have been crafted with love in my home kitchen, using the appliances that you would have in your own home kitchen. They have not been reduced from commercial recipes, nor have they been collected from friends and family. Each recipe has been tested and re-tested to create the best taste and texture possible."

Amazing Dairy-Free Desserts contains non-dairy confections perfect for every time of year, including special occasions and holidays. Recipes include:

  • Toasted Almond Ice Creem
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Bananas Foster
  • Bread Pudding with Rum Custard Sauce
  • Chocolate Fondue
  • Pecan Toffee Cheezecake
  • Pecan Snowballs
  • Peanut Butter Crosshatch Cookies
  • Eclairs
  • Vanilla Custard Tartlets
