Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts (2012) Alice Medrich

Sinfully Easy Delicious DessertsAs I’ve noted before, I am very fond of Alice Medrich’s Cookies and Brownies, so along with Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies I also picked up Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts.

There are a lot of recipes I want to try here, though I have made only one so far, her Apple Crisp, and I didn’t even follow that recipe completely, since it called for dried apricots which I 1) didn’t have and 2) wasn’t interested in adding to an apple crisp.

That said, the apple crisp WAS very good.

What I really want to try however are the various pudding and mousse recipes. I have a Thing for puddings and panna cotta and other such creamy desserts, so I am very much looking forward to expanding my repertoire with things that aren’t horribly complex and time consuming. (I just have to remember to stock up on whole milk and cream.)

There are, of course, lots of gorgeous pictures, almost all of which looks achievable by a human being, and the recipes are thorough, which would make this a good book for someone who isn’t comfortable baking.

She also has several sauces which can be applied to any number of desserts, which I always love seeing.

The recipes are organized by dessert types, such as fruit desserts, puddings, cookies, etc.

I definitely want to try more recipes from here.
