Lauren found a way (actually, 100 ways!) to get incredible sweets to the table in just minutes.

This superb book is rife with delectations that are quick to prepare and even quicker to disappear."" --Marcel Desaulniers, author of ""I'm Dreaming of a Chocolate Christmas""""Real desserts real fast! Talented and clever, Lauren Chattman has created 100 recipes for sweet-lovers of all ages. Each recipe takes 30 minutes or less to go from kitchen to table--the surprise, the bonus, and the sweetest part!"" --Dorie Greenspan, author of ""Baking from My Home to Yours""

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW.. SO helpful 29 Oct 2009
By Chimica Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a cookbook writer but I don't write too many dessert recipes. Normally because they take A BUNCH of time. This book proves me so wrong. I am now able to write my own .. It's excited and fun.. and easy and this book is a must if you need to make some quick deserts..

5.0 out of 5 stars The tips and insights are wonderful for busy cooks 8 Feb 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
One hundred from-scratch desserts which can be put together in a half hour or less come from a busy mother and former pastry chef and offers a wide range of dishes, from cookies and puddings to ice cream. Shortcuts to extra-swift production range from using frozen pizza dough to make pie crusts to 'baking' cookies in a waffle iron. The tips and insights are wonderful for busy cooks who still wish to cook from scratch and make for an outstanding guide libraries will find a popular pick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Dessert Book! 1 Dec 2009
By Barbara Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book came right on time, as they usually do. If you like quick little desserts that are easy to put together... this is the book for you. I found that just about anything you want to make in this book will require ingredients that you will probably have hanging around in your pantry any way. Great for entertaining! Good book at a good price. I would say that this is not just for entertaining. If you are a working mom and like the idea of putting dessert on the family dinner table, these are so easy to do, that even the kids can help out and you will all have dessert in a flash!

My daughter loves to bake desserts so I bought her this recipe book and after she paged through it, I could tell she was going to enjoy trying many of the recipes. I have had such good success with finding gifts for my family at Amazon.com and they are always so prompt with their delivery.
