Must-Have Dessert Cookbooks for Spring!

Amazing Themed Dessert Cookbooks for Spring 2012

There are some SUPER adorable cookbooks coming out soon, and I am just so excited about them I can barely contain myself. They’re all themed, all desserts, and all completely squee-worthy cute! My pre-order wishlist is piling up by the minute! I mean, just check out the one above from the sweet Lindsay Landis over at Love and Olive Oil and Purr Design. Oh my gosh. It’s an entire cookbook devoted to cookie dough recipes! Cookie dough! If this isn’t pure and complete awesomeness, I don’t know what is!

Here’s a sneak peek of a few of the recipes. I seriously cannot wait for this one. Lindsay is a super, multi-talented gal, so I know it will be amazing! Not only is she a fabulous food blogger, but she’s also an incredibly talented blog designer. If I’m browsing around blogs and come across a blog with a design I love, chances are, Lindsay designed it. Not only that, but did you know Lindsay makes the cutest pet collars? I actually met Lindsay years ago right after we first got Miley and Howie — and before I even knew what a food blog was — when I bought some of her collars for them. They’re still Miley and Howie’s favorites. Here’s a photo of them wearing them! Back then, I was in awe of Lindsay because she had the cutest pet collars around. Now I am in awe of her because she wrote a cookbook devoted entirely to cookie dough! Check out Lindsay’s collars at Pattern and Paw.

Next is Desserts in Jars by Shaina Olmanson. I love this girl to death! This book has such a near and dear place in my heart. It’s all desserts, they’re all adorable, and they’re all in jars.

Did you guys know that Shaina did part of her recipe testing and photo shoot for this book right HERE at my house?? You can bet I was in hog heaven taste-testing all these fabulous desserts! I’ve got a bunch of behind-the-scenes pictures that I can’t wait to share with you once the book comes out, but for now, here’s a sneak peek at two. How adorable is that mini apple pie?? I will tell you that one of the recipes that Shaina created was a Peanut Butter and Jelly Parfait that was completely and totally life changing. I would eat it every day for the rest of my life. Make that one first!

Courtney’s an extremely talented stylist, designer, and total trend-setter. Her blog, Pizzazzerie, is always my first stop for party design and decor inspiration.
