Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2007 - Cooking - 238 pages
What's better than homemade Baked Fudge Cake, Country Apple Tart, or Chocolate Thin Mint Triangles?

These same desserts -- on your table in 30 minutes or less. The James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Melanie Barnard shows how to make cakes, cookies, tarts, turnovers, and candy in a fraction of the time of ordinary recipes, with spectacular results. Like Raspberries in Chantilly Cream (8 minutes). Or Warm Mocha Truffle Cakes (26 minutes). Or Strawberry Almond Butter Tart (30 minutes). Or Blueberry Corn Cake (25 minutes). With Short & Sweet, you'll never again have to sacrifice serving a homemade dessert because you're short on time.
