Dessert is always a pleasure, but sometimes you want to up the ante a little, to make your guests utter a blissful sigh and lick their spoons. Packed with intriguing recipes and invaluable advice, Unforgettable Desserts helps you do just that. Baking expert and cooking show host Dede Wilson has created a collection of desserts that range from simple and elegant to exotic and extravagant. They are all absolutely unforgettable-and you don't have to be a pastry chef to make them. In Dede's hands, even the simplest, homiest treats like brownies and rice pudding become showstoppers. Dazzle your friends and family with treats such as:

Breakfast, Brunch, and Snack Cakes Celebrate morning-or snack time-with Lemon-Ginger Scones, Butter and Cream Sugar Crunch Cake, and Gianduja Banana Baby Cakes with Hazelnut Streusel.

Cookies and Bars Imagine serving elegant Matcha Tea Leaf Shortbreads, Almond-Apricot Brownies with Tart Cherry Ganache, and Pistachio Butterballs.

Fruit Desserts A little embellishment elevates fresh fruit into something truly special, whether it's Summer Berry Vacherin with Cr+me Fra'che or the ultimate Strawberry Biscuit Shortcakes.

Cakes From straightforward to spectacular, cakes that taste as incredible as they look: Ricotta Cheesecake with Clementine-Cranberry Marmalade, Chocolate Mango Cloud Cake, and Toasted Coconut Cake with Lime Curd and Mount Gay Rum.

Pies and Tarts Rustic or refined, from reimagined American classics to new takes on traditional European desserts: Red and Purple Plum Tart with Marzipan Crumble, Espresso Black-Bottomed Pie in a Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust, and Deep-Dish Sour Cream- Apple Pie with Lemon-Cardamom Streusel.

Custards, Gel Es, Mousses, and Puddings Smooth, spoonable delights like a ring mold filled with Champagne-Cassis Mousse, Warm Chocolate Velvet, and even The Giant Cream Puff.

Frozen Desserts and Sauces Swoon-worthy

treats made from store-bought ice cream or from scratch-no ice cream machine needed! Try Browned Butter Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches with Pan-Roasted Blueberry Ice Cream or Espresso-Stracciatella Semifreddo with Kahl a-Caramel Sauce.

Candies, Confections, Truffles, and Tidbits A little something to surprise and delight: Chocolate Raspberry Bliss Bites, Hot Chocolate Truffle Bombs, and Fleur de Sel Caramels.

Separate chapters give valuable information on equipment and ingredients, and provide basic recipes for pie doughs, cake layers, and cream fillings. Throughout the book, Dede offers expert advice on everything from choosing the right chocolate to keeping cookies crisp to making her recipes your own.

Luscious and instructive, Unforgettable Desserts gives you everything you need to make the last part of the meal the most memorable part.
