Sweets & Treats with Six Sisters’ Stuff: 100+ Desserts, Gift Ideas, and Traditions for the Whole Family is a fun book for the sweet-tooth in your family or for those gatherings, like book club, where you’re sick of making the same old treats. The Six Sisters are masters at combining ready-made products in the grocery store with original recipes, as well as creating recipes from scratch.
When I got this book out of the library, we went through and selected recipes we all wanted to try. My husband chose Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches for a gather we had with several kids, and the kids loved making them. I’d recommend this for hot summer days when you have cookies and ice cream on hand or you could make your own cookies. I chose to make Oatmeal Scotchie Blondies, which we shared with our daughter’s preschool class, since it made more than a dozen. These were more like bars and something happened with the recipe that made these harder than expected. Perhaps it was because I had to substitute some brown sugar for white sugar. I’m not a culinary expert.
The final recipe we made, and one we’ll likely make again, was shared with book club in June. Mint Oreo Brownies were easy to make, using brownie mixes and Oreo cookies, as well as marshmallow creme. The recipe called for food coloring and mint extract to make a light green colored marshmallow and frosting. These were such a hit with book club that we only had two left, and I also cut the recipe down to one box of brownie mix.
Sweets & Treats with Six Sisters’ Stuff: 100+ Desserts, Gift Ideas, and Traditions for the Whole Family has recipes that are so easy to use, and as long as, users know how many people they are feeding, the recipes can be adjusted. The cookbook includes recipes for other brownies, cakes, cookies, and bars, as well as pies, no-bake treats, and ice cream. It’s definitely a cookbook to keep on hand.
