•Junior's Dessert Cookbook: 75 Recipes for Cheesecakes, Pies, Cookies, Cakes, and More by Alan Rosen and Beth Allen

Junior's restaurants in New York are known for great food and delicious cheesecakes. Junior's Dessert Cookbook contains 75 recipes including their famous cheesecakes, layered cakes, and pies. The chapter on the basics includes sauces, buttercreams, and decorations for the different desserts. And if you become stuck or there is a problem with the baked items, the table at the back of the book lists probable causes and how to fix it next time around.

Chapters include recipes for all their favorites: Junior's Famous Cheesecakes; Fabulous Soda Fountain Desserts; Black & White; Junior's Layer Cakes and Cupcakes; Junior's Pie Shoppe; Save Room for Dessert; For Those Watching Their Sugar; Baker's Basics; What to Do If Your Dessert Is Not Perfect; and Metric Equivalents.

All in all, a good dessert cookbook. Their cheesecakes are the main draw to their menus, and the recipes for them deliver. The recipes stress using quality ingredients, and the many tips encourage successful baking.
