Some nights you just need a little something sweet to cap off the meal. This is where Mary Younkin’s new book comes in handy. Called The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook, this book features 80 irresistible recipes with only 5 to 15 minutes of prep time! You can whip up a dessert in no time at all.
Mary Youkin is also the author of The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and creator of BarefeetInTheKitchen.com.
The multitude of recipe photos on the front cover of the great recipes inside for cookies, bars and squares, puddings, cakes, crisps and more.
Chapters include One-Pan Cakes for Every Occasion, Cookie Recipes You’ll Make on Repeat, Bars: The Ultimate Make-Ahead Dessert, Cobblers, Crisps, Crumbles and Flops, Irresistible Ice Creams, Puddings and Sauces and No-Bake Treats for any Season.
A few stand out recipes to try including Giant Coconut-Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Favourite Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, M&M’s Treasure Cookies, Black Forest Brownies, Cranberry-Almond Crumble, Peach Upside-Down Cake (using frozen then thawed peach slices), Chunky Monkey Snack Cake and Perfect-Every-Time Hot Fudge Sauce (delicious over ice cream or make-your-own sundaes).
I love that every recipe has a gorgeous photo, so you know what the final product is supposed to look like. Also, the recipes are short and easy to follow so even beginner bakers can master desserts in no time.
The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook is a book I will keep handy on my bookshelf, and I know it will get plenty of use! I tried a few recipes from the book with great success and can’t wait to work my way through the book as I try many other recipes. Thank you, Mary Younkin, for satisfying our sweet tooth with The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook.
Look here for recipes in the coming days…
