The Pastry Queen: Royally Good Recipes from the Texas Hill Country's Rather Sweet Bakery & Cafe

Rebecca Rather


the simplest Little From-Scratch Bakery in Texas
 
The pastry case in Rebecca Rather's bakery in Fredericksburg is full of ultra-buttery scones, luscious truffles, cookies the scale of saucers, muffins as tremendous as bricks, and fruit pies that glance as if they got here immediately out of Grandma's oven. because the day Rebecca and her particularly candy Bakery and Café got here to city, lifestyles during this Hill state hamlet has been even sweeter and the townsfolk now recognize why she is the Pastry Queen. every little thing she makes is lots like her: down-home but grand, and known but different.
 
A local Texan, really makes the main of her Lone big name state's assorted traditions, even if seeking to the kitchens of Texas's Mexican and German immigrants or to the cowboy tradition of her personal forebears. better of all, her recipes will not be fussy—one of her best-selling truffles stirs jointly in one saucepan. upload in a cupful of Texas perspective and her made-from-scratch-with-love philosophy, and you have got an impossible to resist style of yankee baking.
 
What's most sensible at really candy? Rebecca's shoppers all have their favorites (and she is worked up to cater to their cravings), yet here is only a style of the perennial most sensible sellers:
 
•  Apple-Smoked Bacon and Cheddar Scones
•  Texas significant Hairs Lemon-Lime cakes (the in simple terms massive hair Rebecca has ever had!)
•  Fourth of July Fried Pies
•  Peach Queen Cake with Dulce de Leche Frosting
•  Turbo-Charged truffles with Praline Topping
•  All-Sold-Out chook Pot Pies
•  Kolaches (pillowy yeasted buns with candy or savory fillings)
•  PB&J Cookies
 
With over one hundred twenty five surefire established recipes and a hundred pictures that richly catch small-town lifestyles within the Hill state, The Pastry Queen bargains a Texas-size serving of the royal beauty of Rebecca's baked goods—courtesy of the relatively candy gal in the back of the case.
