Baking demystified with 450 foolproof recipes from Cook's Illustrated, America's most trusted food magazine.

The Cook's Illustrated Baking Book has it all--definitive recipes for all your favorite cookies, cakes, pies, tarts, breads, pizza, and more, along with kitchen-tested techniques that will transform your baking. Recipes range from easy (drop cookies and no-knead bread) to more ambitious (authentic croissants and dacquoise) and the trademark test kitchen expertise shines through each one. Discover why spreading the dough and then sprinkling the berries leads to better Blueberry Scones , why cubed versus shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese makes all the difference in our irresistible Cheese Bread , how we found three ways to squeeze more lemon flavor into our Lemon Bundt Cake , and how to keep the best Buttermilk Waffles your family will ever taste warm and crispy.

An illustrated Baking Basics chapter at the front of the book provides information on key ingredients and equipment and lays the groundwork for a lifetime of baking success. A shopping guide at the back recommends our favorite brands. The recipes in this book represent all the wisdom of the bakers that came before us as well as all we've learned through literally thousands of trial-and-error sessions in our kitchens.

Love this so much I bought my own copy for $12.99 from B&N. A steal for a great source and recipe reference. Check out the meringue recipe on page 227. A recent issue of C.I. Featured “Hot Cocoa Meringue “ which was a combo of the chocolate and espresso recipes. I have made these several times for events and they were very well received.
