Description

Raised on a farm in North Carolina, Robbin Gourley started baking as a child the day she got her first toy oven. She's been producing beautiful paintings for almost as long. Her newest cookbook is a perfect combination of all of Gourley's talents, bringing together over sixty of her classic Southern dessert recipes (ranging from Chocolate Chess Pie to Syllabub), and over seventy-five of her delicate watercolors. Taking us back through reminiscences of her youth, Gourley shares how sweets wound their way through her childhood and family: the Raspberry Summer Pudding that her mother made with their freshly picked berries, the Pumpkin Chiffon Pie her uncle couldn't resist, and the Sugar-Crust Pound Cake that became her father's favorite. Divided into sections, the cookbook features easy-to-follow recipes for Pies, Crisps, and Crumbles; Puddings and Custards; Candy, Cookies and Bars; Favorite Cakes;Chilled and Spirited Desserts; Embellishments and Sauces.
