Building on the success of The Homestyle Amish Kitchen (more than 58,000 copies sold), Georgia Varozza partners with experienced baker Kathleen Kerr to give you a cookbook filled with the foods most associated with the Plain and simple life: baked goods. This delicious collection of more than three hundred classic baking recipes for cookies, cakes, pies, bars, and breads inspires you who love Amish fiction and are drawn to the Plain lifestyle to roll up your sleeves and start baking!

Whether you consider yourself a novice or a veteran in the kitchen, Georgia and Kathleen make it easy to make delicious baking recipes such as Amish Nut Balls and Brown Sugar Pie. Find the perfect recipe to prepare for that large weekend potluck, tonight's intimate family dinner, or a fun activity with the kids.

MY REVIEW:   5 Stars!  ***** 
I love to bake and I love Amish recipes, so this book was a big hit with me!   There is also a brief history of the Amish at the beginning of the book and short introductions to each category throughout the cookbook.   The recipes were clear and concise with easy-to-follow directions.  Some of the recipes are more complex and many are very simple and easy to prepare.  
I especially loved the recipes for brown sugar pie, impossible coconut pie, and the delightful breads.   In the bread section, many hints were given for how to use different flours such as wheat, all-purpose, white, etc and I learned a great deal of things that I had never been taught as I read.   I am looking forward to trying even more of the recipes.   One big problem with the cookbook, you are sure to get hungry and start to drool as you read through the many wonderful Amish recipes!   
I received a free kindle Advanced Reader Copy of this cookbook in exchange for an honest review.
