BAKELESS SWEETS: Pudding, Panna Cotta, Fluff, Icebox Cake, and More No-Bake Desserts (2013)

It seems there’s a cookbook for nearly everything these days, so imagine The Kitchn executive editor Faith Durand’s surprise when she discovered that there was no one-stop shop for spoonful desserts, no single cookbook that gathered these sweets into one place. She could find no pudding cookbooks—and very few no-bake cookbooks—and certainly nothing that included everything from homey pudding to elegant panna cotta to crowd-pleasing icebox cake. She wanted that book on her shelf. So she wrote it.

Praise for Bakeless Sweets:

Bakeless Sweets is a tasty morsel, with recipes that work, photos that inspire, and budinos that will make you blush. I wanted to eat the pages right off the spine. Unlike other dessert cookbooks out there, everything you make from this book will look exactly like the photos–and each bite will make you swoon.” –Jeni Britton Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and author of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home

“From pudding to panna cotta, chilly ice box cakes to tangy lemon bars–keep your cool in the kitchen with this unique collection of desserts from Faith Durand, who offers tons of tips and techniques for making delicious desserts with a minimum of fuss, but with a maximum of flavor.”–David Lebovitz, author of Ready for DessertThe Perfect Scoop and The Sweet Life in Paris

“How could I not love a book that teaches us how to make roasted pistachio pudding, chai-white chocolate budino, Thai sticky rice with mango and sesame seeds, and sour cream panna cotta with clementine curd? The fact that most of the recipes in Bakeless Sweets are naturally gluten-free makes it a boon for anyone who still wants decadent desserts without baking. Also, there’s root beer and cream soda terrine. Need I say more?”Shauna James Ahern, of and author of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef
