You know how those Southern dessert recipes goùa cup of sugar here, a stick of butter there, eight squares of bak­ing chocolate, or a pint of the seasonÆs juiciest fruit. That recipe for blueberry cream pieùitÆs been passed around the church for so long nobody can quite remember who made it first. Or how about the one for red velvet cheesecake youÆve been trying to coax out of your sister-in-law for years? She serves it every Christmas Eve, but so far her lips are sealed.

These are the types of food traditions that inspire You Be Sweetùa celebration of Southern dessert recipes and the people who cherish them. In this compilation of stories and sweet treats, Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson peek in on those occasions special enough to demand something decadent, and memorable enough to be repeated time and again. YouÆll find the strawberry jam bars that always make an appearance at the neighborhood picnic. The German chocolate cake roll that pulls in the big bucks at the charity bake sale? ThatÆs here too. The blackberry jelly recipe that has graced Mason jars all over the South for decades? ItÆs here, and itÆs just about the best hostess gift you can offer up. Be sweet? You wonÆt be able to help it!
