There are some books you simply need to have around for the tried-and-true recipes, and this is one of them. It's our go-to book whenever we want to make a cake, or are looking for a frosting recipe, or need to make some brownies that are a bit beyond the norm.

Format: Paperback
Nothing tops off a meal like a good desert. That's why "250 Treasured Country Desserts: Mouthwatering, Time-Honored, Tries & True, Soul-Satisfying, Handed-Down Sweet Comforts" is such a desired and desirable addition to any family cookbook shelf. The collaborative project of noted cookbook author Andrea Chesman and culinary arts instructor Fran Raboff (herself the co-author of several successful cookbooks), "250 Treasured Country Desserts" truly lives up to its extended title with such culinary delights as Rich Chocolate Crinkles; Black Walnut Cake; Coconut Cream Pie; Charlotte Russe with Strawberry Sauce; Lime Sorbet; and 245 more 'kitchen cook friendly' traditional desserts. Enhanced with listings on metric conversions, egg information, volume and weight equivalents, "250 Treasured Country Desserts" will prove a welcome and popular addition to any personal, family, or community library cookbook collection!

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Authors Andrea Chesman & Fran Raboff have put together one of the nicest and most extensive collections of treasured, long-time favorite recipes I've come across in some while in 250 Treasured Country Desserts: Mouthwatering, Time-honored, Tried & True, Soul-satisfying, Handed-down Sweet Comforts.

Divided into eight chapters featuring Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Fancy Cakes, Everyday Cakes, Muffins & Scones, Pie & Tarts, Fruit & Nut Desserts, Puddings & Custards, and Ice Cream & Frozen Desserts, you'll find good versions of just about everything you can think of from Angel Cake to Walnut Pie, with plenty of stops along the way for Linzer Cookies, Baklava and Forbidden Rice Pudding. I was delighted to come across recipes for Butterscotch Sauce (fantastic on ice cream, delightful on gingerbread!), Maple Frozen Yogurt, Shoofly Pie, Lindy's New York Cheesecake and many, many more.

While this is a book of recipes rather than a how-to-bake book, you'll find something for every skill level along with a wealth of tips and advice. One feature I particularly liked is a special "Every Day is A Holiday" calendar listing many of the "National" days. Today is National Nut Day. Tomorrow is National Boston Cream Pie Day (recipe included.)

The book is nicely laid out and easy to read. The authors are careful to provide clear directions and often include interesting comments, bits of food history or information about how much Hot Fudge Sauce to allow per person. The Kindle format makes this easy to take into the kitchen on your iPad or Kindle. Simply slip your device into a gallon-sized ziplock bag and close it up.

A nice little common sense book, nicely written with some recipes I was not aware of, and I have over 4,000 cookbooks, so I speak with lots of experience! I have baked seven of the recipes so far and every one has been
very good. The only reason I gave this one only 4 stars is I personally like a lot of pictures. However, this should in
no way deter you from buying it
