200 Timeless Recipes to Bake, Share and Enjoy

These days, when time is so valuable, taking an hour to make a special treat for others can be as gratifying for the giver as it is for the receiver. If you’re ready to feel the satisfaction that comes from sharing food, it’s time to get Back to Baking.

In this book, bestselling author Anna Olson solves the mystery of baking, with 200 all-new recipes, ranging from cookies to custards, squares to pies, and muffins to cakes.

Whether you are an absolute novice or seasoned adventurer in the world of baking, you’ll love the “Before You Bake” section on baking actions and ingredients, measuring, mixing, pans, and heat. Illustrations for making pie crust, assembling a layered wedding cake, applying fondant, and folding scones are also featured. Want step-by-step instructions for a gingerbread house? See the special-occasion chapter. Have a food intolerance or allergy? See the chapters on dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and low-fat/low-sugar baking. Topping everything off are the “Notes from Anna’s Kitchen,” tips and techniques to help bakers bypass kitchen disasters and produce perfect pastries every time.
