Through the Seasons: A Baker’s Dozen of Breads and Sweets: Recipes from The Virginia House-Wife

Imported sugar in large solid cones, whole spices of all kinds, lemons, oranges, almonds, raisins, candied fruits, chocolate, tea, brandies and wines were always on the shopping lists of the wealthy.

The Baker’s Dozen of goodies I have chosen represent a range of tasty recipes easily replicated in a modern kitchen. I’ve had such fun making them and sharing the results with family and friends.
