Editorial Reviews Review

One out of four American women read Family Circle and collect their foolproof, all-purpose recipes. Now the magazine's editors have compiled a generous collection of more than 200 of their favorite cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, and fancy desserts in Best-Ever Cakes & Cookies. Best known for old-fashioned favorites, Family Circle delivers with recipes such as Blueberry Buckle, Conga Bars, and Streusel-Topped Banana Bread. Clear, concise instructions make even the more complicated recipes easy to follow--flavored with brown sugar and nutmeg, Mixed Berry Gratin is ready in less than 15 minutes. The details are what count when making the Mint-Berry Chocolate Cake--just follow along and the final presentation is a breathtaking chocolate-glazed beauty decorated with chocolate-covered mint leaves and fresh berries. There are enough photos to tempt your palate, but it's the no-nonsense layout and instructions that make this a very handy baking book for absolutely anyone. --Leora Y. Bloom
