About the Author


Award-winning, bestselling author, Wanda E. Brunstetter became fascinated with the Amish way of life when she first visited her husband's Mennonite relatives living in Pennsylvania. Wanda and her husband, Richard, live in Washington State but take every opportunity to visit Amish settlements throughout the States, where they have several Amish friends.

My Review

What a delightful accompaniment to Wanda Brunstetter's wonderful books about the Amish...Wunderbar Gut Desserts From The Heart of Amish Country!   This cookbook is beautifully illustrated with photographs of the Amish life as well as mouthwatering pictures of the desserts.  Mmmm...Shoofly Pie, Apple Pandowdy, Magic Cobbler, Strawberry Divinity...the list of delicious Amish desserts goes on and on.

The book contains the following chapters:

  1. Cakes
  2. Candy
  3. Cookies and Bars
  4. Ice Cream, Toppings and Frozen Desserts
  5. Pies
  6. Puddings and Cobblers
  7. Other Desserts
What a wonderful cookbook to add to your collection.  The recipes are all very straightforward and sound absolutely delicious!
