Thanks to Grandma's favorite international dessert recipes, you'll get to make many best-loved desserts from other lands and enjoy delicious old fashioned treats. If you like trying traditional foods from other countries, you've come to the right place. Each pleasurable dish is made from scratch using authentic methods and all-natural ingredients to tempt the taste buds.


Traditional Origins

In cooking, much of our legend and lore, to say nothing of good eating, comes from The Old Country. For many of us, that's the country our ancestors emigrated from, and the source of our family dessert recipes.

However, the vast majority of today's cooks no longer use brick ovens. They don't run to the spring for water. Nor do they cook in stone fireplaces. Many don't even pick their own fruits anymore. Yet, even in today's gleaming, modern kitchens, many a cook strives for the old time texture and flavor of the desserts featured below.

My Grannie Bell came to Canada from Scotland, and she made the most delicious homemade scones you ever tasted. I loved to eat them when they were warm from the oven and smothered in her thick, homemade orange marmalade. You simply cannot buy scones like that in a bakery shop. You have to make them yourself from the original recipe.

You may be trying for nothing more than a creamy pudding such as "mother used to make" or a freshly baked pie "like Grandma once set on the table," but like as not the taste you seek goes far back beyond your mother's or grandmother's time. We crave the comforting traditional flavors!

Many of these favorite family dishes can be traced back to the European continent, the origin of so many Canadian and American peoples, and their time-honored recipes. That's true of the amazing desserts that follow.
