9781565122758: Sugar Pie and Jelly Roll: Sweets from a Southern Kitchen

Raised on a farm in North Carolina, Robbin Gourley started baking as a child the day she got her first toy oven. She's been producing beautiful paintings for almost as long. Her newest cookbook is a perfect combination of all of Gourley's talents, bringing together over sixty of her classic Southern dessert recipes (ranging from Chocolate Chess Pie to Syllabub), and over seventy-five of her delicate watercolors. Taking us back through reminiscences of her youth, Gourley shares how sweets wound their way through her childhood and family: the Raspberry Summer Pudding that her mother made with their freshly picked berries, the Pumpkin Chiffon Pie her uncle couldn't resist, and the Sugar-Crust Pound Cake that became her father's favorite. Divided into sections, the cookbook features easy-to-follow recipes for Pies, Crisps, and Crumbles; Puddings and Custards; Candy, Cookies and Bars; Favorite Cakes;Chilled and Spirited Desserts; Embellishments and Sauces.

Just the thing to round out the meal, Sugar Pie and Jelly Roll makes creating desserts as much fun as helping them disappear.

From the Inside Flap:

Robbin Gourley was raised in a home where desserts were a family ritual and recipes were passed from one generation to the next. And it was on her parents' North Carolina farm that she began to watch ad learn in earnest, until cooking and baking became an intrinsic part of her life. Now she passes her family recipes and reminiscences along in a cookbook bursting with easy-to-make sweets, treats, and desserts with a Southern flair.

As talented with a paintbrush as with a whisk, Robbin Gourley shares sixty-five of her classic Southern dessert recipes - from Chocolate Chess Pie to Syllabub - and over seventy-five of her enchanting watercolor illustrations. Taking us back through memories of her youth, Gourley recounts how sweets wound their way through her childhood and family: the Classic Southern Pecan Pie that her mother made with their freshly picked pecans, the Pumpkin Chiffon Pie her uncle couldn't resist, and the Sugar-Crust Pound Cake that became her father's favorite.

Just the thing to round out the meal, Sugar Pie and Jelly Roll: Sweets from the Southern Kitchen makes creating desserts as much fun as helping them disappears.

From the Back Cover:

Simple Pleasures of Family - and Dessert!

We were a pride of cousins. On occasions when we all had gathered from various corners of the South, my grandmother's house would echo with the cacophony of thirteen grandchildren. Once we took tow of Aunt Bett's babies sledding with us in the woods. We found a hill that provided the most exciting sled ride in my memory.. By dusk, exhilarated, wet, and cold, we trudged home. A warm fire and Burnt-Sugar Cake welcomed us back.
