BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts

It’s been a crazy journey from my very first book announcement in 2012, but at long last I can say that my cookbook has been released!

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. With a foreword from my friend Kenji, tons of vintage advertisements, breathtaking photography from Penny De Los Santos, and over a hundred recipes (plus 200+ variations), I hope you’ll find it worth the wait.

BraveTart is available wherever books are sold: Amazon, Indie Bound, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, iBooks, Powell’s, and even your local bookstore.

Thanks to the support of my publisher, W. W. Norton, I’ll be visiting lots of bookstores and kitchen spaces around the country. While more dates will be added in the weeks to come, these are the dates and locations we know for sure, and I’d love nothing more than a chance to meet those of you who’ve been supporting me all this time.

So excited for you (and us) Stella! I’m grateful you’ve still been pushing out recipes over at SE.

I wish you were coming closer in the Midwest, but no one comes to Iowa, so we understand. Good luck and all the best!

I’ve already preordered and can’t wait till I receive your book. We love your recipes and wish that you were doing a book signing in upstate New York in the Saratoga area (which I would drive to for you).
Congratulations for what I know will be an amazing book.

Just got the book from Amazon. I totally love it. I’ve always loved the recipes in your blog and it’s great to have some more in such a beautifully bound book. Everything categorized so nicely and it’s refreshing that you talk about ingredients, equipment and variations on recipes. It’s really quite wonderful. Thanks!

I already bought this and I LOVE it. I can’t wait to start making everything. I have just one question. I wanted to start with the Hostess cupcakes. It says the filling is homemade cool whip but I can’t find that recipe? Did I miss it?

the book is marvelous and again congrats to you and the hard work you put into this baby. i do have a question for you. could you help me find a recipe for stamp cookies? i have these holiday cookie stamps from Nordic Ware ( yes thinking about christmas ) already) and i tried a recipe last year that was an epic fail. the dough was not quite right for the stamping and i may not have chilled it enough. i am asking you if you know of a recipe that you have used that is good ? thank you in advance.

It all depends on the type of motor you are trying to cool and how much heat is being generated inside of it.

That is absolutely true, since you will be able to improve in each aspect.
Keep away from any company which has a huge amounts of problems.
