These are recipes for the classics, rich in the nostalgic flavors of your childhood: from Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies, Cinny Buns and S'mores; to Classic Chocolate Cake, Lemon Meringue Cupcakes and Good Ol' Apple Pie. Butter began as a tiny bakery in Vancouver, opened and operated by Rosie Daykin, a passionate home baker since she was six years old. The bakery is a pink- and pistachio-colored slice of heaven; its counters are piled high with glass cases and cake stands, filled with sugary treats. But word soon got out (the baking was too good to keep quiet!) and Butter is now famous across North America for being the home of the very best gourmet marshmallow. Butter's marshmallows are now stocked in over 300 (and counting) stores across Canada and the US. The recipe for Rosie's famous marshmallows is just one, of 101, tucked into the pages of this beautiful book. Every recipe in Butter Baked Goods has simple, step-by-step instructions, and is written in an accessible and easy-to-follow style, so that everyone can create Butter's delectable treats--from grandmothers who have been baking all their lives, to teenagers making their very first cupcakes. Rosie's baking is not about trickery, flamboyance or hard-to-find ingredients, but about great-tasting, homemade treats to celebrate life's milestones: birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, baby showers, bridal showers--or just a gloomy, rainy afternoon when you need a little pick-me-up.
