With all of her earlier books now out of print, we're thrilled to see this collection of recipes from the inimitable Maida Heatter, for generations one of America's most beloved home bakers.
Gathered from six of Heatter's previously published books, the near 100 recipes here can be considered a sort of best-of collection, including such famous treats as Oatmeal Snickerdoodles, Macadamia and Milk Chocolate Biscotti, Florida Lemon Squares, Fudge Mallows, and Viennese Almond Wafers. There's a reason Maida Heatter is one of the most beloved bakers ever, and her cookies are a big part of that.
Hardcover. Color illustrations throughout.
This is one of three recent books which collect some of Maida Heatter's best recipes. Its companions are Happiness is Baking
, and Chocolate is Forever
. Somewhat shockingly to us, the publishers seem to have assumed that someone interested in Maida Heatter might not buy all three books. So there are some recipes which are repeated from book to book, such as the Palm Beach Brownies.
