Présentation de l'éditeur
In this dessert recipe collection, each of the 50 states features two recipes that are representative of that state for one reason or another (100 recipes) including a great variety of cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, bars, sorbet, ice cream and more!
In addition to ingredients lists and cooking instructions for each recipe, you will also discover an interesting tidbit about the history of the recipe or its’ main ingredient and sometimes both! Here are a couple examples:
Missouri Black Walnut-Caramel Tart
Producing nearly 50 percent of the world’s Black Walnuts, Missouri is the world’s largest black walnut producer. Black walnuts have a stronger flavor than English walnuts and have thus become a popular ingredient in Missouri’s baked goods.
Maryland Smith Island Cake
With ten layers of cake and ten layers of rich frosting, Smith Island Cake is not only the state dessert of Maryland but an irresistible, mouthwatering confection that harkens back to the English torte, from which it is believed to have originated. Smith Island Cake is usually iced with chocolate frosting but variations made with banana, orange and coconut frosting have become popular.
