"Baking the Best of Mary Lee's Desserts" will have you baking successfully in no time! Inside you'll find recipes for old-fashioned layer cakes, Mary Lee's signature cakes, amazing cupcakes, cookies, bars, tarts, morning breads, and more! Mary Lee is known for the taste and quality of each and every dessert, and until now, has not shared her recipes outside of the Washington Post. Included in this book are the four recipes published in the Washington Post, including her hugely successful M&M Bars. Unlike many cookbooks that simply test recipes for publication, the recipes inside of this book are the foundation of her highly successful baking business. Mary Lee has written each recipe with brand names listed, and easy step-by-step instructions for all levels of bakers. Additionally, there are sections on baking equipment and baking tips that all levels of bakers will find helpful. Having covered all book-related costs herself, Mary Lee is donating all of the profits from each book's sale to: Jose Andres' World Central Kitchen, The Trevor Project, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
