Description


100 of the best cake, pie, cookie, bar, and candy recipes from two sassy sugar mommas (and one of Oprah’s favorite candy makers) on a mission to preserve America’s best heirloom sweets and the even sweeter stories behind them.

"The mission of the 'Sugar Mommas'...is to bring readers vintage treats and the stories behind them. The result is a book filled with tempting cakes, pies, cookies, and candies. These ladies don't always follow the rules, and it's refreshing to see that their approach to baking comes with a sense of humor." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Part retro, part contemporary and charmingly whimsical cookies, pies and bars share space with candies, cakes and more in such favorites as Gran's Tea Cakes, Cracked Sugar Cookies, Kentucky Derby Bars, Chocolate Hydrogen Bombs and Lucinda Bells $100 Pecan Pie....The Sugar Mommas dish out helpful hints throughout the book. Did you know that a 9-by-13-inch pan holds 15 cups, a 9-by-2-inch round cake pan 8 cups?" --San Antonio Express-News

Sugar, Sugar offers 100 of the best cake, pie, cookie, bar, and candy recipes from two sassy Sugar Mommas, Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero, who are on a mission to preserve America's best sweet treat recipes and the even sweeter stories behind them. As the Sugar Mommas explain, "We drove down memory lane to discover our sugar inheritance, and then dug into everyone else's past to find their dusty, torn, and butter-crusted index cards."

What the Sugar Mommas found was that every recipe has a story. From desserts that accompanied families through good and bad times, to treats perfected by domestic help, to never-before-transcribed sugar concoctions developed from wild imaginations, each recipe conveys the unique personality of the friend or family member who created it.

With plenty of pies worth the lie, cakes to diet for, and better-than-nooky cookies, as well as an assortment of cobblers, crisps, bars, and other decadent confections, Sugar, Sugar is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
