Sandra Lee’s desserts have long been favorites among the legions of loyal fans of her two popular Food Network shows, Semi-Homemade Cooking and Money Saving Meals. The Bake Sale Cookbook brings together 120 amazing recipes and dozens more tips and ideas, all photographed in gorgeous full-color. You’ll find easy and always popular cakes and cupcakes; melt-in-your-mouth pies, tarts, and pastries; brownies, cookies, and bars; and even candies and confections. The easy-to-prepare recipes are perfect for school bake sales, family gatherings, and just about any occasion.
It’s that time of year again when our Church carnival is just around the corner and items are being requested for the Cake and Pie Booth. This gives me a perfect opportunity to bake. You see, I love to bake and usually have no one to bake for.
This book is wonderful and I have chosen a few recipes to try, even though they are not cakes or pies. I enjoy maked cookies and bars and so here are the ones I have decided to make:
Maple Bars, page 88, because this time of year just calls out for Maple flavors.
Chocolate Strawberry Hearts, page 120, because these remind me of Linzer Cookies which are pretty to look out and taste wonderful.
And last, but not least, S’Mores Fudge, page 144, because with the popularity of S’Mores being at an all time high now I think it will be a very good seller. Yum.
I can hardly wait to get into the kitchen and get busy.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoys baking for ANY occasion.
