A baking book from â?one of the best pastry shops in all of New Yorkâ? (Food and Wine)
Everyone has a favorite sweet treat. Whether itâ's a delicious brownie or the perfect mouthwatering chocolate chip cookie, simple, homespun treats are some of our most beloved. Melissa Murphy has a love of desserts that started when she was born on Thanksgiving Dayâ?her mother refused to go to the hospital until the two pies sheâ'd baked had been served. Now, Melissa brings that passion to the loyal devotees of her popular, award-winning Sweet Melissa Pã¢tisserie shops.
What makes Melissaâ's desserts and pastries special is that they are treats we all know and love with a fresh spin that make them more delicious than ever before. In The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, Melissa shares her simple, triedand-true techniques and her French-influenced, American- style baking approach. There are desserts for everyday, such as Double Dark Chocolate Cherry Cookies, and for more special occasions.
Warm and spirited, The Sweet Melissa Baking Book also contains charming anecdotes from Melissaâ's life of baking. With more than one hundred recipes, the simple treats in this book will make each day and every special occasion sweeter.
Recipes from the Brooklyn patisserie Sweet Melissa are deliciously gathered together in this toothsome baking bible. The goodies include Almond and Sour Cherry Biscotti, Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk Pie, Strawberry Muffins with Fresh Lemon and Rosemary, Devil's Food Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting, and Caramel Apple Turnovers with Sweet Ricotta Filling.
