Here you will find the quickest lemon tart, a lattice-free linzer torte (mixed entirely in the food processor), one-bowl French chocolate torte (yes, the real thing, but easier to make), imaginative ways with ice cream, chic puddings and mousses to swoon over, and gooey pies with no-fault press-in crusts. Even soufflés for beginners. And you won’t need a rolling pin, a pastry brush, or the skills of a professional baker.
As always, you’ll find well-tested recipes with tips for success that will make all cooks — even those nervous about baking — confident in the kitchen. Plus there are more than 100 ideas for spur-of-the-moment desserts that don’t even involve baking, including fantastic ideas for ways to dress up a bar of chocolate, a pint of strawberries, a handful of dried fruit, fresh cheese, gingerbread, amaretti, and more.
