By Cynthis Finnemore Simonds
(Camden, Maine) Third in a series of Maine-influenced recipe collections, Delicious Maine Desserts: 96 Recipes from Easy to Elaborate features desserts built on regional foods such as blueberry pies and other fruits, pumpkin, rhubarb, maple sugar and syrup, and products from Maine wineries and distilleries. Author and chef, Cynthia Finnemore Simonds, reveals the simple pleasures of using local, Maine ingredients to create pies, cobblers, cheesecakes, custards, candies, and many other treats known to Maine.
Simonds’ first two books in this series, Fresh Maine Salads: Innovative Recipes from Appetizers to Desserts and Superb Maine Soups: Innovative Recipes from Simple to Sumptuous, established her reputation for creating original recipes that incorporate local ingredients. Now, in Delicious Maine Desserts, she turns her attention to such treats as the Chocolate Wow Cake, classic whoopee pies, custards, brittles, flans, fudges, and much more!
