Reviews - What do customers think about Debbi Fields' Great American Desserts: 100 Mouthwatering Easy-to-Prepare Recipes?

A Must Have for your Collection  May 25, 2007
If you like to make desserts, you need this book. The recipes can appear to be long, but they are filled with little hints that make baking easier. I have made several of the desserts and they have all turned out great. The book has recipes for basic pies and cakes and recipes for more complex desserts. My only complaint about the book is that I wish it was on a spiral binding so it would lay flat while I'm using it. The biggest complement for this book is that my mother-in-law, who is a great cook, couldn't wait to get her own copy after seeing the desserts I prepared from it!
Yummy!  Dec 31, 2004
I checked out this book from my local library. I made the Triple Cherry Chocolate Pie and the New-York Style Cheesecake for Christmas. My mother (who is not a cheesecake fan) said the cheesecake was wonderful (she even had seconds!) and my dad loved how fluffy it was. I added bourbon to the caramel topping for a little extra flavor. It was simple to make (for a some-time baker). The pie was good, too, and was unique in flavor and texture. There are several other recipes I want to try, but I'm afraid we'll all get fat (quite a bit of butter in these recipes)! Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your opinion) calories and fat grams aren't listed! I like the way the recipes are broken down into sections (crust, filling, topping) - it makes it easy to get yourself organized. If you need to make a decadent dessert, this is a very good cookbook!
A Treasure for Dessert Lovers!  Feb 20, 2003
Cookie aficionados have known for years that no one does moist, chewy, gooey cookies better than Mrs. Fields. With her latest, gorgeously photographed book, "Great American Desserts," Mrs. Fields gives her legions of admirers more reason to celebrate. The superb recipes I've tried include Flourless Fudge Brownies, Paradise Key Lime Pie, Butterscotch Blondies, and Peanut Butter Mississippi Mud Bars. Those are just a few standout recipes - I can't wait to try more of the 100 classic desserts in this book, which often contain a wonderfully surprising, updated twist. The Paradise Key Lime Pie, for instance, uses heavy cream instead of sweetened condensed milk, and the results are superb! I'm not a vastly experienced baker, just a longtime dessert lover who has gradually taken up baking. I have high expectations for dessert recipes, and will never repeat a recipe that fails the taste test. The recipes in "Great American Desserts" are a feast for the senses! The next desserts I plan to try are the Truffle Cake, and Debbi's Ice Cream Cake. If the results are even half as good as what I've seen previously, I should be in dessert heaven!
Very disappointing  Feb 1, 2003
I too was lured into purchasing this book because of the over-the-top recipes but that actually proved to be the downfall. After trying out several I gave up on this book because they either were too hard, didn't work out or were just OK. I made the Carrot Cake twice and it ended up just falling apart both times when I took it out of the pan. And this was after about an hour & 1/2 in the kitchen. Other things like the Flourless Fudge Brownies were way too sweet & rich and made me a little sick to my stomach. I consider myself an experienced baker and there are so many other books which are more helpful and less of a waste. Try the Cake Bible or Betty Crocker books.
Interesting but not entirely pleased  Jun 5, 2002
Some of these recipes were strange, and some of the cakes appeared dry-looking although very pretty to look at. I really like the blueberry muffins. The cheesecake section does look very good even though I haven't had the chance to try any of them yet. The chocolate icing calling for 22 tablespoons of butter is fluffy, thick, and excellent. The pictures are very impressive looking but I am not sure if all of the recipes are tried-and-true. I have mixed feelings about this cookbook. The price was right, however, for a hardback.
