Dessert Cookbooks: 6 beautiful photographed cookbooks

Posted on

Whether you’re an experienced baker or a hungry novice, these stunning guides will have you whipping up sugary, decorated delicacies in no time—or simply cause guests to drool if you display these photo-heavy collections on the coffee table.

1. Better Baking by Genevieve Ko

In these ingenious recastings of favorite recipes like chocolate cake and rugelach, Ko uses whole grains instead of white flour and—when she can—­various oils in place of butter.

2. Butter Celebrates! by Rosie Daykin

Unlike Ko, Daykin believes in butter (and plenty of it) in these signature recipes from her Vancouver bakery, such as pistachio macaroons and sponge cake.

3. Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Green

For those whose copies of Greenspan’s cookbook are dog-eared on the dessert pages, this cookie-only book is a treat.

4. Pâtisserie at Home by Mélanie Dupuis

This oversize book is stuffed with more than just recipes: It also features crisp infographics and scientific explanations for aspects of trickier pastries.

5. The Sprinkles Baking Book by Candace Nelson

Nelson, founder of the first cupcakes-­only bakery in the U.S. shares her delicious desserts, plus recipes from such stars as Blake Lively and Julia Roberts.

6. Marbled, Swirled, and ­Layered by Irvin Lin

Before you devour Lin’s bars and pies, be sure to pause and admire his artful frosting and beautifully scattered crumbles.
