In her first cookbook, Claire Saffitz — "a baking hero for a new generation" — offers her signature spin on sweet and savory recipes like Babkallah (a babka-Challah mashup), Apple and Concord Grape Crumble Pie, Strawberry-Cornmeal Layer Cake, Crispy Mushroom Galette, and Malted Forever Brownies.
“There are no ‘just cooks’ out there, only bakers who haven’t yet been converted. I am a dessert person, and we are all dessert people,” Saffitz says. She outlines the problems and solutions for each recipe — like what to do if your pie dough for Sour Cherry Pie cracks (patch it with dough or a quiche flour paste!) — as well as practical do’s and don’ts, skill level, prep and bake time, step-by-step photography, and foundational know-how.
With her trademark warmth and superpower ability to explain anything baking related, Claire is ready to make everyone a dessert person.
