Baking With Dorie
Say â€œDorie Greenspan" and you think of baking. The renowned author of thirteen cookbooks and winner of five James Beard and two IACP awards offers a collection that celebrates the sweet, the savory, and the simple. Every recipe is signature Dorie: easyâ€”beginners can ace every technique in this bookâ€”and accessible, made with everyday ingredients. Are there surprises? Of course! Youâ€™ll find ingenious twists like Berry Biscuits. Footlong cheese sticks made with cream puff dough. Apple pie with browned butter spiced like warm mulled cider. A sâ€™mores ice cream cake with velvety chocolate sauce, salty peanuts, and toasted marshmallows. Itâ€™s a book of simple yet sophisticated baking. The chapters are classic: Breakfast Stuff â€¢ Cakes â€¢ Cookies â€¢ Pies, Tarts, Cobblers and Crisps â€¢ Two Perfect Little Pastries â€¢ Salty Side Up. The recipes are unexpected. And there are â€œSweethearts" throughout, mini collections of Dorieâ€™s all-time favorites. Donâ€™t miss the meringue Little Marvels or the Double-Decker Caramel Cake. Like all of Dorieâ€™s recipes, they lend themselves to being remade, refashioned, and riffed on.
