Essential Western Cookbook: Best Desserts
These are the top-rated and most reviewed dessert recipes from The Sunset Essential Western Cookbook.
Blackberry Hazelnut Honey Crisp
Foods that grow in the same place tend to taste good together, as this pairing of blackberries and hazelnuts proves.
Brown Sugar Strawberry Tart
This recipe is so simple that you'll find yourself getting creative with the berries you put on the top. The combination of the brown sugar crust, creamy filling and sweet fruit topping make this the perfect summertime treat.
Tangerine Olive Oil Cake
A glass of Roussanne wine gives this citrusy cake a light floral note. Use fruit with tightly fitting skins (loose-skinned ones are more difficult to zest) and a good olive oil that's been crushed with tangerines, rather than infused after crushing.
Pineapple Satays with Coconut Caramel
Pineapple holds up to skewering, doesn’t fall apart on the grill, and makes an elegant, surprising dessert—especially when drizzled with a simple-to-make caramel sauce. You’ll need 16 wooden skewers for this recipe.
Rhubarb Cardamom Galette
This dessert is far from the ordinary, but completely worth the effort for the phenomenal flavor. A French-inspired pastry with a mild tart flavor and hint of pungent spice give you a simply unique Western-instilled treat.
Huckleberry Skillet CobblerOne of our all-time favorite desserts, with just a hint of spices to pull out the complex, wine-rich flavor of the huckleberries—and also delicious made with blueberries.
This buttery almond toffee is easy and delicious and can make the perfect homemade holiday gift.
