Item Description...
To a church lady, a homemade dessert is more than just a sweet finale to a well-prepared meal. It's a culinary achievement, a demonstration of affection-and a reminder of the bounty of God's blessings on the home. And no one more than the church lady is aware of the power of a creamy four-layer chocolate pie, Florida cookies that taste like sunshine, or a pound cake with a crumb as fine as face powder-prepared with love and served with respect. The Church Ladies' Divine Desserts brings together more than two hundred of these irresistible recipes and celebrates the lives of the women affectionately known as "church ladies." By turns moving, inspiring, and amusing, this book is a tribute to these dedicated women for their unflagging devotion to church, family, and community. And their desserts-all made from scratch-are heaven-sent. Nothing store-bought or instant-mixed will ever pass muster on a true church lady's table. So save your fork, because the best is yet to come-the church ladies' desserts are on their way.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An important piece of our history  Nov 8, 2006
The praline recipe in this book is outstanding, as well as the cover recipe, the lemon-coconut pound cake. Both get rave reviews whenever I make them. The stories and pictures are also wonderful, and should bring up wonderful memories for anyone who grew up in the church.
Needs An Interior Redesign  Jan 31, 2006
Don't get me wrong this is a good collection of recipes not all of which are directly from church ladies.

However, as a baker I prefer to see a presentation- a photo of the finished product. This edition has too many pictures of the cooks and not enough of the cooking. I was not expecting a Church fashion show! Maybe the writer could compromise and in a next edition put the baker with her product?

The interior pages which were of a type of recycled non-luminious paper that was a bit hard on my eyes.


Treasure Trove!  Oct 21, 2005
I used to eat well at my church in Little Rock, AR. I loved how everyone had a signature dish that generated multiple requests for the recipe. You can now have your own signature dessert with this book!

The book is divided into the following chapters:
Pies, Cobblers and Trunoers
Cookies and Candy
Custards and Puddings
Frozen Treats
Specialty Desserts
Top It Off (Sauces)

You will get your money's worth with this book. There is a huge number of recipes! In the cake chapter alone there are 50 recipes. Unfortunately there are no pictures of the desserts, but the book is filled with images of the women who made them and their stories. This is a book to be treasured.

This book takes me back to my church socials. It contains the varied and quirky dessert recipes (buttermilk ice cream and Mississippi Mud Cake) that made the teas and dinners special. You should be able to find a number of recipes to use for your next bake sale, tea or dinner with family.
This is a wonderful book.  Aug 4, 2004
I came across this book while weeding the large print collection. I took a moment to leaf through it, and I was amazed. This is a gorgeous book, filled with history, photos, and tasty recipes -- and the writing in it is very clever.

This is a special book, more than just a cookbook. I would highly recommend checking it out, but you better not read it hungry!
Good one...  Dec 30, 2003
I liked the pictures and the author's comments. The recipes are plain and simple. This is an interesting and easy to follow cookbook. Good price.
