These heartfelt, timeless recipes are sure to be enjoyed by generations to come, and with this book, readers can recreate the warmth of Butter Baked Goods in their own home."

“Long before I met Rosie Daykin, I met her baked goods. The tarts, the cupcakes, the cookies, the various delectable bars that were all so incredibly delicious it became soul-crushing to choose one over the other. As regulars, we came to know Rosie—the sweetie behind the sweets—and it wasn’t long before we fell in love with her too. She’s an amazingly talented woman, and a wonderful human being. Still, if I had to choose between her and one of her Dream Bars, it’d be a tough call. Maybe with this cookbook I can make my own"
—Brent Butt, actor, comedian and creator of Corner Gas
"The lost art of old-fashioned family baking is preserved and made simple, accessible and beautiful in Butter Baked Goods. This cookbook is a celebration of the memories shared through baking, with recipes that will have you running back to the cookie jar for more. Rosie has grown her business well beyond the bakery yet preserves the magic, keeping baking as it's meant to be—easy and totally delicious."
—Trish Magwood, chef and author of In My Mother's Kitchen

I immediatley bought the cookbook and have been making delicious baked goods ever since.
The store in Dunbar area in Vancouver has high tea as well as baked goods for sale and the book reminds me of the shop itself -inviting and there is a great attention to even the smallest of details. As an example the book has a ribbon to hold your spot in the book and it has the "Butter" logo on it. The colours and lighting used to photograph the cakes, cookies and other treats makes you want to start baking right away. The first recipe I tried was the "Hello There, Doll Face" squares. The recipe only had six ingredients and the results were a pan of sqaures that were ridiculously easy to make and were so yummy that all the pieces disappeared very quickly. The recipe was made over and over at our home for the holidays and added to trays to give away to friends. I also made the "Chocolate Espresso Pound Cake" and it was so popular at work that I made small-sized bundt cakes for the office as Christmas gifts. The instructions are easy to follow and every recipe I have tried has turned out to look like the photogaphs in the book. The marshmallows (which is something the bakery is known for) are surprisingly simple to make if you follow the instructions. You will become a master baker and candy maker by using the recipes in this book and your friends will be very impressed. I am so happy with this purchase that I have ordered a dozen copies to give to friends for upcoming birthdays. I highly recommend this cookbook.
The true test of the cookbook though would be if I could replicate the taste and texture of the store bought baked goods when making them myself. My favorite cookie is the Big Sugar Cookie at Butter. I am thrilled to say that I have made these from the recipe in the book several times now and they taste exactly like my favorite cookies at Butter. Next I am going to try the Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie. And when I get really brave I am going to try making the marshmallows. These marshmallows are the marshmallows that they sell at Dean and Deluca in NYC as well as being the marshmallows that kicked off the new marshmallow trend.
The book is gorgeous! It is laid out beautifully and it has many pictures of the steps as well as of the finished products.
I cannot recommend this cookbook highly enough. Now if Maxie B in Greensboro, North Carolina would release a cookbook my sweet tooth fantasies would be complete!
For many years I'd been trying to find cake and icing recipes that replicated those tasty treats I remembered from my childhood. THIS is that book. I've now made several of the scones, cookies and cakes and the basic butter cream has become my favourite "go-to" icing recipe. All the recipes I've attempted so far are easy to make (and delicious) and the directions are clear.
Thank you Rosie Daykin! Next time I'm in BC I'll certainly make time to visit the bake shop.
