Diner Desserts

By Tish Boyle

Diner Desserts  
From doughnuts and coffee in the morning to late-night cheesecake splurges, the delights of the roadside diner are part of every American's highway heritage. So unfold your laminated menu and get that fluorescent cake display spinning, because no one can resist the sweet indulgence of Coconut Dream Pie, Chocolate Marble Cheesecake, Strawberry Shortcake, and Creamy Tapioca Pudding.

Using clean, easy-to-follow recipes, author Tish Boyle has assembled much more than a baker's dozen of diner-style desserts, pastries, and treats. Illustrated throughout with over one hundred iconic black-and-white images of classic diners, Diner Desserts is the perfect book for home cooks and diner aficionados alike. Just remember, a slice of homemade pie is always a real good way to start the day.
