All-American Desserts is a treasure-trove of 400 desserts that tantalize Americans across this great country, whether traditional sweets, back-of-the-box classics, or newly inspired creations. Intrepid dessert hunter Judith Fertig has ventured far and wide to gather these scrumptious treats together for others to discover and enjoy. Every type of sweet satisfaction is here: cookies, cakes, pies, puddings, cobblers, slumps, turnovers, cupcakes - even candy. A true American dessert is one that either was adapted from another culinary tradition to suit American tastes (Greek Deep Dish Custard Tart, Germantown Lebkuchen) or was created by an American cook using American ingredients (Vermont maple syrup in Maple and Hickory Nut Apple Crisp, New Mexican pine nuts in Ole Mole Cookies). All-American Desserts has all the classics plus lesser-known regional favorites, and each dessert has its own story, which Fertig puts into historical context along with the recipe.
