Description: We all have fond memories of a favorite dessert our grandmother or mother used to bake. Through the years it's these dishes that give us comfort in times of stress, help us celebrate holidays and special occasions, and remind us of the person who used to bake for us so lovingly those many years ago. 

The recipes in Heirloom Baking with the Brass Sisters: More than 100 Years of Recipes Discovered from Family Cookbooks, Original Journals, Scraps of Paper, and Grandmother's Kitchen represent nearly 100 years of America's most loved and most delicious desserts, handed down through the generations and now lovingly preserved and updated by Marilynn Brass and Sheila Brass. The book includes more than 150 "found" dessert recipes from the late 1800s to the 1980s and from all parts of America, including a wide range of ethnic groups. Arranged in eleven thematic chapters such as "Holidays with Family and Friends," "Baking with Mama," and "Coming to America," the book features an array of down-home and delicious recipes and stories from the lives of the women and families from which they came. 

These recipes are simple to make and require basic pantry items, because, after all, the kitchens of our ancestors did not have lots of fancy ingredients -- and the Brass sisters have taken care to update every recipe for today's modern kitchens. More than 150 beautiful photographs showcase the scrumptious desserts in full-color detail. The Brass sisters encourage each reader to begin collecting his or her own family recipes in the lined pages and keepsake envelope at the back of the book.
