Whether you consider yourself a novice or a veteran in the kitchen, Georgia and Kathleen make it easy to make delicious baking recipes such as Amish Nut Balls and Brown Sugar Pie. Find the perfect recipe to prepare for that large weekend potluck, tonight’s intimate family dinner, or a fun activity with the kids.

A lovely book.  As far as Amish baking books go, this one has what appear to be authentic recipes, and almost all of them I know I will make.

There are recipes for soft pretzels, assorted breads including lemon, pumpkin, and orange; biscuits, scones, popovers and muffins; doughnuts, rolls and apple dumplings; and cookies, brownies and bars galore.  There are also cakes (Apple Caramel Cake, Yum!) and pies, cobblers and crisps.  Anyone who loves to bake would be hard-pressed not to find something they'd enjoy making.

And the best part is that everything is from scratch.  you won't find any boxes or cans here.  There are also recipes that even inexperienced bakers should be able to conquer.  Highly recommended.
