It's National Dessert Month

What better way to celebrate than to look through our numerous books about desserts?  We have a very large collection of cookbooks, most of which contain sections about sweets.  And of course, we have a lot of books devoted to desserts alone. Some recommendations:

The New York Times Dessert Cookbook: 440 Recipes for Every Kind of Sweet to Make at Home edited by Florence Fabricant.  Thorough and crave inducing.

The Sweet Spot: Asian Inspired Desserts by Pichet Ong and  Genevieve Ko.  A different blend of flavors and ingredients, all delicious.

Jell-O Classic Recipes.  When was the last time you had a slice of 'Cool-N-Easy' Pie?

Martha Stewart's New Pies and Tarts: 150 Recipes for Old-Fashioned and Modern Favorites.  You can't go wrong with these recipes.  The book covers every type of pie you can think of (savory, too) and a few more obscure varieties as well.

Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich.  Each recipe is clearly described along with some 'upgrades' to make the recipe a bit fancier. Lots of ideas for holiday cookie exchanges.
