Additional Details

Description: Lee Bailey's Country Desserts is devoted to the kind of luscious, down-home desserts Lee Bailey grew up with as a child in Louisiana. Drawing upon family favorites as well as recipes given to him by friends and friends' families, he has collected 150 old-fashioned desserts that will make your mouth water and stir up memories of lazy summer afternoons. 

Included are recipes for rich ice cream such as his grandmother's favorite Peppermint Candy lce Cream; cakes like Fresh Pineapple Upside-Down Cake and his Aunt Cora's Banana Layer Cake; and wonderfully gooey sauces and toppings like Rum-Butter Sauce and Praline Sauce. 

There are coffee and teatime favorites such as Applesauce Spice Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting; satisfying puddings and custards; fruit cobblers and crisps; country-style pies and tarts like Lemon Meringue Pie and Butterscotch Pie; fudges, divinities, and brittles; old- fashioned cookies like Pecan-Brown Sugar Shortbread, Cracked Sugar Cookies, and Coconut-Walnut Jumbles; and especially easy to make kids desserts -- Popcorn Balls and Caramel Apples -- that grown-ups love, too. 

There is even a section on light and cool fresh fruit desserts that are a feast for the senses and low in calories. 

Mr. Bailey also provides a source guide to his favorite cookie sheets, cake and pie tins, gadgets, and other essential equipment to make Bailey-style dessert-making a pleasure. 

Filled with warmth, style, and reassuringly practical advice, Lee Bailey's Country Desserts is an inspiration for everyone, whether entertaining family or friends,
