Daisy King presents this delightful new volume of more than two hundred delectable desserts that she considers "blue ribbon winners" as the first book in her cookbook series, Miss Daisy’s Blue Ribbon Recipes. Miss Daisy’s desserts have an undeniably southern twist. Fruits, nuts, fresh eggs, butter, and cream provide this collection of sugary concoctions the rich flavor that embodies the taste of the South. And while southern cooking may often seem difficult, Daisy’s user-friendly recipes ensure that even the beginner can create delicious and beautiful desserts with little time or effort. Along with the recipes are hints to make dessert preparation more successful for both the novice and the experienced cook. For example, did you know that a good way to peel peaches is to immerse them in boiling water for 10-20 seconds, then run a knife along the indentation of the peach to remove the skin? Or that if you put lemons or limes in hot water for several minutes before squeezing, that they will yield more juice? There are many other tips on preparation, storage and terminology in this book. Some of the flavorful recipes Daisy has featured include: Apple Fritters, Old-Fashioned Molasses Cookies, Double Chocolate Brownies, Ginger Pumpkin Mousse, Blackberry-Raspberry Dessert, Miss Daisy’s Key Lime Pie, Blueberry Mountain Cobbler, Rum Raisin Apple Brown Betty, Miss Daisy’s Coffee Chocolate Pound Cake, Mocha Torte, and Cream Cheese Fudge.
