This Amish Dessert Cookbook is complied by Christian Amish fiction writer Wanda E. Brunstetter. Being an Amish fan, I love the cookbooks by Amish and love trying some of the recipes, and this cookbook is no disappointment. It is full of wonderful recipes.

In the beginning of this cookbook, the author has written a brief introduction of the history of the Amish and Mennonites and has included a few colorful pictures taken in an Amish community. The cookbook is divided into seven sections: Cakes; Candy; Cookies and Bars; Ice Cream, Toppings and Frozen Desserts; Pies; Puddings and Cobblers, and Other Desserts. Each section has many mouthwatering recipes from various Amish ladies with the names and places the ladies live. A few of these great recipes are: Fudge Pudding Cake; Zucchini Carrot Cake; Strawberry Divinity; Maple Chocolate Walnut Bars; (yes I’m trying to make you hungry!); Buttermilk Cookies; Ice Cream Jell-O and many more awesome recipes with lots of pictures showing some of the prepared foods.

If you like to cook and try new recipes, you will love this Amish Cookbook. Most of the recipes look fairly simple and sound wonderful! I like the information and the striking pictures taken in Amish communities the author has included, as well as a lot of unique recipes I haven’t heard of before reading this book. In the back of the book you will find an index including all of the recipes in the book but separated in different sections to make them an easy find for you.

I urge you to buy a copy of this beautiful cookbook, try a few of the recipes and eat like the Amish eat.
