This colorful collection features 125 handpicked classic, heirloom, and regional American dessert recipes - from cakes, pies, and puddings, to cookies, brownies, and bars—foolproofed by the test cooks and editors of Cook’s Country magazine.
We’ve put these heirloom treasures through their paces in the test kitchen and made sure that they are clear, easy to follow, and foolproof.
