Amish Friends Cookbook: Desserts

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

When I had graduated from high school, I took an opportunity with MCC to head over to India. Before heading to that part of the world, I went to get some training and meet some of my team in Akron, PA – and that’s right in the heart of Amish country.

For this city girl, it was pretty neat to get a peek at the traditional hose and buggy clopping down the street, and to enjoy the many food stuffs that the Amish make that I got to try.

Amish Friends Cookbook: Desserts by Wanda E. Brunstetter; is full of recipes and photographs of long proved Amish dessert recipes, that have been shared with family and friends likely for generations. Basic recipes, some very distinctive to the Amish, that will be a hit on your table whether it’s for family dinner, a bake sale, pot luck or holiday gathering.

I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago, taking some of the quotes about simplicity that are peppered throughout the cookbook. And that’s summarizes the cookbook itself, simple recipes that satisfy both physically and on a taste level as well. You won’t find fancy gourmet fondants and ganaches in this cookbook, but you will find recipes that will likely become tradition in your own home.

You can purchase Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Cookbook: Desserts at retailers nationwide and online for a mrsp of $16.99.

I was able to review this book through a digital copy through NetGalley and Barbour Publishing.

  1. I love Amish recipes. There is a good chance that I may be able to sneak this one into the house. (I have just too many cookbooks and I really don't need anymore, but I just love getting them!)

  2. I have just the regular Amish Friends Cookbook that has a little bit of everything! I love the recipes! Just last week I made blueberry Buckle, and it's a new favorite in our house! :o)
