No one can resist a scrumptious dessert at the end of a meal. Imagine saying no to double-chocolate mousse cake, fresh cherry tarts, or a rich, smooth creme caramel!

The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Book of Desserts reveals, in the clearly written and lavishly illustrated style Good Housekeeping has become famous for, how to master the art of dessert making. Though the recipes may look complicated, they're really a breeze to make, so you can delight family and friends with everything from souffli's to cobblers, pies, and tortes; from cookies and cakes to ice cream desserts and fruit drinks.

Here are more than 200 irresistible recipes, some of which are old favorites and some fresh new ideas, all the very best from the Good Housekeeping kitchens. Each is complete with step-by-step photographs to guide you through every aspect of a recipe, as well as a mouth-watering full-color photo of the finished dish so you know what you're aiming for.

Special feature pages round out this "course" in dessert making. You'll find easy-to-follow information and basic instructions for icings, fillings, sweet sauces, and meringues; pastry, piping, and decorating techniques; crusts and fruit containers. Hints and tips for every stage of making and assembling a dessert are included -- freezing, storing, and thawing along with wonderful suggestions for garnishing, decorating, and serving each dish. An extensive glossary of terms makes dessert making even easier, and each recipe has been tested and retested in Good Housekeeping's legendary kitchens for perfect taste and ease of preparation.The next time someone asks "What's for dessert?," you'll have the perfect answer at your fingertips.
