Baking With the Brass Sisters (St. Martin’s Press, 2015; $29.99) embodies the philosophy that’s drawn thousands of fans to them: “We believe that there is nothing that tastes as good as something baked by someone who loves us, unless it is something we have baked and shared with someone we love.” In this new book, Marilyn and Sheila Brass have gone to their collection of trusted manuscript cookbooks and handwritten recipes that number in the thousands to rediscover the home-baked treats that were brought to America from around the world. They have listened to the stories of recipes that have been passed down by family and friends and interpreted them for the home kitchen. Readers will fi nd wonderful recipes for treats such as Grandma Goldberg’s Honey Cake, Big Mama’s Lemon-Lime Tassies, Billy Goat Cookies, Cobblestone Apple Tart, and many more. Baking With the Brass Sisters is a classic baking book that bakers of all levels will keep on their shelves, and bake from, for years to come. Available from www.amazon.com and www.bn.com.
