In his debut cookbook, Dan shares 100 recipes for his game-changing versions of familiar classics, such as a Red Velvet Layer Cake and Creamy Lemon Chess Squares, as well as unique creations, like Seriously Sesame Brownies and a Ricotta and Pistachio Cannoli Tart. He’ll also let you in on the pro secrets that make his bakes better than your usual stand-bys, like toasting not only nuts but oats, poppy seeds, and almond flours to turbocharge their flavor, or stabilizing whipped cream with a touch of cream cheese to keep it perfectly fluffy. Equally invaluable are Dan’s tips for helping you produce bakes that look as good as they taste, so your bars have razor-sharp edges and your muffins have gorgeously domed tops. Accompanied by charming photography that's as enticing as the treats themselves, this beautiful and instructive book will become a go-to for bakers both seasoned and beginner.
