From One-Bowl Devil's Food Layer Cake to a flawless Cherry Pie that's crisp even on the very bottom, BraveTart is a celebration of classic American desserts. Whether down-home delights like Blueberry Muffins and Glossy Fudge Brownies or supermarket mainstays such as Vanilla Wafers and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, your favorites are all here. These meticulously tested recipes bring an award-winning pastry chef's expertise into your kitchen, along with advice on how to "mix it up" with over 200 customizable variations--in short, exactly what you'd expect from a cookbook penned by a senior editor at Serious Eats. Yet BraveTart is much more than a cookbook, as Stella Parks delves into the surprising stories of how our favorite desserts came to be, from chocolate chip cookies that predate the Tollhouse Inn to the prohibition-era origins of ice cream sodas and floats. With a foreword by The Food Lab's J. Kenji López-Alt, vintage advertisements for these historical desserts, and breathtaking photography from Penny De Los Santos, BraveTart is sure to become an American classic.

I loved the stories behind some of the great desserts and confections like the Milky Way Bar, graham crackers, lemon meringue pie and every type of cookie including Thin Mints from the Girl Guides.
As the previous reviewer said, interesting to read and learn about all the desserts but I would not not make my own chocolate bars or marshmallows.

Interesting info about the history of various desserts and delicious looking treats but most are a bit too complicated for me to even think about making.
