Excellent recipes for every day baking & cookie swap
on November 16, 2016
I have tried making the Pebble Beach Fruits....funny name behind a wheat free fruit newton's made with coarsely chopped fruits spiced with either cinnamon, anise or if you want reconstituted with brandy or cognac. But anyway, tried few recipes...and they were fabulous. The family were surprised, then they loved it. This will be 1 baking book you should on your bakery collection. Most of them are sweet cookies,but there are several savory biscuits, others are made of herbs & spices that you don't normally include as a dessert, and others have wheat free versions (her blend is mostly brown rice flour and oats+ xanthan gum to keep it together for structure). The recipes are divided how each are described under textures, ingredients used but don't sacrifice flavors. This book is great for a baker who want to add on their baking arsenal, amateur and pro alike. Different flavors and textures that are great everyday or maybe doing a cookie swap or a baking sale. I am sure will surely cherish these recipes from Alice Medrich.
