By Rabecca Rather and Alison Oresman

Down home yet grand; familiar yet one-of-a-kind--these are the words that describe small-town Hill Country life as well as chef Rebecca Rather and her renowned creations from the Rather Sweet Bakery in Fredericksburg. In The Pastry Queen, Rebecca Rather shares the rich heritage of Texas with this simple and well-organized collection of 125 from-scratch recipes that reflect the unique German, Mexican, and cowboy traditions of the region, including favorites from the bakery such as apple-smoked bacon and cheddar scones, peach queen cake with dulce de leche frosting, and those famous PB&J cookies. With stories, anecdotes, and over 100 photographs of Texas Hill Country life to enrich the experience, The Pastry Queen is more than a cookbook; it's an album of memories you're sure to treasure with every bite.
