So many Desserts to choose from and to Impress Family and Friends.

  •     I have shelves upon shelves of cookbooks. Every single recipe I make out of this (and the Pilsbury Apps book) get rave reviews. Always get asked for recipes, etc.Over the years, I have made cheesecakes, cookies, pies, cakes, etc. out of this thing. I never have issues with items coming out flat/tasting like they're missing ingredients (Martha Stweart, I'm looking at you).I just bought a copy for my mom and was sad to see that it's out of print. Hopefully there is a latest-greatest or a reissue coming out soon. This book belongs on every cooks shelf!
