Debbi Fields'
Great American Desserts

 

Debbi Fields'Great American Desserts 
The famous founder of Mrs. Fields' Cookies, Debbi Fields has long had a passion for preparing and sharing traditional home-baked treats—made even better with her own innovative tasty touches. At last available in paperback Debbi Fields' Great American Desserts: 100 Mouthwatering Easy-to-Prepare Recipes, shares the celebrated baker's secrets for creating classic recipes to perfection, followed by tempting variations "'a la Debbi."

Serving up a dessert for every occasion and craving, this exquisite cookbook features comforting "oldies" but really "goodies," as well as elegant creations to crown holiday gatherings. For every recipe, Debbi Fields makes the process as enjoyable as the result. Busy home bakers of all experience levels will relish the comprehensive lists of ingredients and equipment needed, clear explanations of techniques, step-by-step instructions, make-ahead and time-saving pointers, and expert tips for success. Throughout, seventy full-color photographs showcase sundry cakes, pies, tarts, puddings, and, of course, cookies guaranteed to taste as scrumptious as they look.

Here's a small sampling of the 100 master recipes and creative renditions presented within these pages:

  • Debbi's Devil Food Cake, the ultimate rich, chocolately sensation, made extra-decadent in a White Chocolate-Frosted version, with dark chocolate fudge ganache and whipped chocolate espresso filling sandwiched between four layers.
  • Debbi's Perfect Pecan Pie, loaded with nuts and touched with a whisper of bourbon, inspiring to-die-for Chocolate Rum Pecan and Toasted Macadamia Nut versions.
  • Debbi's New York-Style Cheesecake, rich and creamy as true the original, and extra-special in its creative variations, including Pumpkin and Butterscotch.
  • Debbi's Flourless Fudge Brownies, made with high-quality chocolate, dense and utterly delicious unadorned, and even richer still when reinvented as Chunky Brazil Nut Brownies.
  • Debbi's Shortbread, buttery, crumbly, sweet, and amazingly simple to make, easily elevated to company fare when prepared with flair as Chocolate Swirled Shortbread.

Debbi Fields also serves up a delectable array of tarts, puddings, cobblers, coffee cakes, and icebox favorites, along with treats especially for kids and sensations reserved for special occasions. Lively, down-to-earth, and lavishly illustrated Debbi Fields' Great American Desserts provides foolproof recipes to give bakers confidence, as it inspires a spirit of fun in creating classic sweet indulgences.
