The first cookbook from Philadelphia's phenomenal Brown Betty Dessert Boutique When three generations of African-American women decided to open a bakery in Philadelphia, they had no idea how quickly the accolades would come.

This delicious cookbook features both the secret recipes that Brown Betty's fans can't wait to get their hands on, as well as the personal stories that explain the evocative names of such recipes as Alice's Two Step and Strawberry Letter. Features recipes that combine old-fashioned treats with thrilling contemporary flavors like sweet potato poundcake and dark cherry cheesecake Includes gorgeous and mouthwatering full-color photography throughout For home bakers who want to experience the best of Brown Betty in their own homes or dessert-lovers looking for something new, The Brown Betty Cookbook offers both inspiration and delectation.
Linda Hinton Brown was raised in a house where her mother, Betty, regularly baked a collection of pies, cakes, and biscuits--all before church on Sundays. Linda's daughter, Norrinda Brown Hayat, grew up with Linda experimenting with Betty's recipes, reading cookbooks, and tearing out pages from baking magazines. Together, in 2002, they founded the beloved Brown Betty Dessert Boutique.
