About this title


Wrap your hands around a cuppa joe, slip a quarter in the jukebox, and dig into a sweet, satisfying slice of Sky-High Lemon Meringue Pie or Chocolate Marble Cheesecake. With Diner Desserts, you don't have to hit the highway to indulge in the favorite desserts of America's roadside eateries. From a Really Rich Double-Chocolate Milk Shake to Creamy Tapioca Pudding and Sour Cream Blueberry Crumbcake, author Tish Boyle has assembled much more than a baker's dozen of scrumptious treats. These are the desserts that no one turns down, ever. This book is a warm slice of nostalgic Americana, with wholesome, easy-to-follow recipes enhanced by black and white photographs of classic diners. Perfect for home cooks and diner aficionados alike, Diner Desserts is sure to remind you that a slice of homemade pie is always a real good way to start the day.


Diner fare has become mythic. Though much of this food is best left to nostalgic recollection, the desserts served at places with names like the Silver Top or Miss Albany's were often choice. Tish Boyle's Diner Desserts celebrates this fact with its collection of more than 60 favorite recipes that includes old favorites like Banana Cream Pie and newer enticements like Chocolate Cheesecake Bars. In such evocatively titled chapters as "Under the Cake Keeper," "From the Soda Fountain," and "Dunkables--Doughnuts, Muffins, and Pastries," Boyle presents a wide range of tempting recipes. Standouts include the Sky-High Lemon Meringue Pie, Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake with a gingersnap crust, Apple-Raspberry Crisp with Pecan Crunch Topping, and, of course, that Banana Cream Pie. There's a nice collection, too, of cookie, bar, and brownie recipes, as well as a section devoted to the likes of the Root Beer Float, Hot Fudge Walnut Sundae, and a Triple-Threat Banana Split. Photo-illustrated throughout and laced with diner anecdotes (the sundae began in reaction to the Sunday prohibition of soda drinks), Diner Desserts offers both browsing fun and cooking satisfaction. --Arthur Boehm
