    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    This isn't the first book to focus on a single dessert ingredient, but it's one of the first to skip the chocolate and go for the gold-caramel. Cullen (Got Milk? The Cookie Book) has developed more than 50 mouth-watering recipes with caramel in a starring role. There are fruit desserts, such as Fresh Figs with Caramel and Crème Fraîche; new twists on classic favorites (e.g., Caramel-Roasted Strawberry Shortcakes); ice cream ideas like Caramelized Banana Split-Second Sundae; and desserts where caramel and chocolate come together in a heavenly combination, such as Chocolate-Caramel Crunch Cake. Chapters are logically divided, so it's easy to find the perfect dessert for moods and occasions. Cullen also provides information on the basics, from caramelizing sugar to cleaning up a sticky caramel mess, plus helpful hints, like her "Tips for Making and Serving Layer Cakes." The decadent recipes and unfussy, easy-to-follow instructions would be tempting enough on their own, but the beautiful color photos by Maren Caruso make this volume irresistible.
