From the Inside Flap
Here at last is the first lovingly assembled, comprehensive collection of delicious, fail-proof baked goods--for the Jewish holidays and throughout the year--compiled and interpreted by Marcy Goldman, a professional baker who is also a professional writer on food.
Even if we don't have time to bake on a regular basis, holidays are something different--special occasions that encourage us to pull out the cake pans and present our family and friends with a gift of homemade love. And this is particularly true of the Jewish holidays, which are so centrally focused on special foods--and, of course, special desserts.
From the round raisin challah that symbolizes the sweetness and continuity of life for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, to triangular, jam-filled hamantaschen for Purim, to a Chanukah dreidel cake, to the best flourless Passover cakes in the world, Marcy Goldman offers recipes that are traditional as well as those with an innovative flair.
Jewish or European-style baked goods--coffee cakes, strudels, cheesecakes, rugelach--are so universally popular that they have become as American as apple pie, and now, with A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking, every home baker will have access to the secrets of how to make them. As if she were a mother passing down techniques to her own children, Marcy Goldman's voice is warm, encouraging, and inviting, as well as authoritative, clear, and knowledgeable. She provides not only detailed instructions that yield delicious baked goods every time, but also a wealth of information on holiday customs and history.
Here is, indeed, a treasury to be welcomed by those who grew up with such recipes, those who are seeking to reestablish traditional holiday celebrations in their own home, and those who simply want to know the secrets for producing a wide range of delicious cakes, pastries, and pies.

What I love most about this book is not necessarily the taste or appearance of the finished products (Which no doubt are awesome), but the fact that every recipe in this book is spot on! Basically this was my first real baking cook book, and I have had many others since, but this is the only book that I can count on. I am a Washington State Fair baking champion, and so I know what it is to bake a lot (and fail a lot too lol), and I really feel like Marcy Goldman's recipes are the only ones that I can truly trust. I have had very few good results with a lot of the other more commonly known people (Martha Stewart, Williams Sonoma, etc), but Marcy's recipes always work for me. I have NEVER had one of her products fail!
My favorite recipe in this book is the Chocolate Fallen Souffle Torte- I know the recipe by heart because I have made it so many times. The absolute one thing that I get the most compliments on! This cake is amazing and perfect in every sense of the word!
The author takes a no nonsense take on baking. She's a pro, but she wants to make it fun & easy for everyone. I'd always been afraid to try to bake bread. But with this, I tried it, and the breads that I've baked have come out perfect every time. The 2511 rolls are wonderful. I use them to make Cinnamon Pull aparts aswell as just plain rolls. Some of the best I've ever had. And her recipe for Classic Southern Buttermilk Biscuits are the best I've ever made. I'm from the south, I dispaired of ever being able to make a truly good biscuit. They came out so light & flakey & just plain good. I mean just every recipe that I've made have come out even better than I'd hoped for. This is my go to book, I have over 260 cook books. And I mean this, if the house was on fire. This book would be one of things that I'd grab before I left the burning building. I know that sounds crazy, but if you get this book. And you use it, you'll know what I mean. From now on, anything that Marcy writes. I'll buy & be happy to buy it. All I can say is Thank you very much for writing this cook book. You've got a fan for life. I have had a passion for baking for a very long time. But Marcy, God Bless you. You have given me a even greater Passion for Baking.
She pretests, more then once, her recipes in print.
I highly recommend her cookbooks. I am a long time Jewish baker & teacher.
