Description: Amy's Bread is a New York institution -- a beloved bakery that serves more than 55,000 loyal customers every month at its three Manhattan cafes and also supplies bread to many of the city's finest restaurants and food stores. While Amy's Bread is famous for its breads, it's also renowned for its sweeter side -- cakes, cookies, bars, pastries, and other tasty bakery treats. Now Amy and her executive pastry chef show you how to re-create more than 70 of the bakery's trademark goodies in your own kitchen, from delectable breakfast and brunch fare to scrumptious snacks and luscious desserts. 

You'll find all of your favorites here -- tempting muffins and scones, classic cookies and bars, old-fashioned layer cakes, and many more. But Amy's Bread takes these familiar favorites to a whole new level, adding a special touch to each baked treat. You'll discover techniques that ensure ideal textures, ingredient combinations that add new flavor dimensions, and tips that guarantee picture-perfect results. The chefs in Amy's Bread's kitchens have painstakingly developed and tested every recipe in the book -- and thousands of customers have already declared the finished products superb. 

Illustrated throughout with more than 100 gorgeous color photographs, The Sweeter Side of Amy's Bread gives you the know-how you need to create all kinds of memorably delicious baked goods. For crowd-pleasing breakfasts, try Oat Scone with Cranberries and Walnuts, Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, Pecan Sticky Buns, or Chocoholic Twists. For outrageously delicious snacks, treat yourself to White Chocolate Cherry Chunker Cookies, Lime Cornmeal Cookies, Gooey Coconut Dream Bars, or Toasted Hazelnut Biscotti with Citrus Zest and Pepper. And for spectacular desserts, you can't go wrong with Definitely Devil's Food Cake, Plum Upside-Down Cake, Rustic Mini Peach Pies, or the famous Amy's Bread "Pink Cake." There are even recipes for some tempting savory items, such as Cheese Biscuits and Spinach Mushroom Quiche, which are perfect for an elegant brunch.
