Claire Saffitz returns with 100 recipes for all dessert people! Whether you’re into impressive-yet-easy molten lava cakes, comforting rice pudding, or decadent chestnut brownies she's got a recipe for you. In this all-new collection, Claire shares recipes for icebox cakes, pies, cobblers, custards, cookies and more, all crafted to be as streamlined as possible. (No stand mixer? No problem! You won’t need one.) Fans will find all the warmth, encouragement, and deliciously foolproof recipes with loads of troubleshooting advice that they’ve come to count on from Claire.
Though none of the recipes in this book rises to the occasion of a project, they range in difficulty level from 1 (Very Easy) to 3 (Moderate). The very easy ones, like HoneyRoasted Apple Cake (page 138) and French 75 Jelly with Grapefruit (page 42), don’t require a lot of time, focus, or technique and could be made while also putting dinner on the table, doing laundry, or emptying the dishwasher (because you know, we all have lives). The moderate ones, like the Souffléed Lemon Bread Pudding (page 325) and Walnut & Oat Slab Pie (page 273), are a bit more involved but provide learning and entertainment in the kitchen without being all-day affairs. No matter the difficulty level or time commitment, each recipe is streamlined so it comes together as efficiently as possible!
