A trio of dessert cookbooks to savor

Love dessert but hate to fuss?
A stout float from "Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts" ($29.95) by Alice Medrich is the treat for you. The float is joined by dozens more recipes such as peanut butter pavlova, honey caramelized figs and food processor chocolate mousse that are just as easy. And easily as tasty.
"Piece of Cake: Home Baking Made Simple" ($29.95) by David Muniz and David Lesniak offers more than 120 recipes for classic American treats.
Think brownies, peanut butter cookies and blueberry muffins. Black and white cheesecake, an honest-to-goodness New York crumb cake, and cakes from bundts to babkas join the fun.
Home-baked pies are the aspiration of many a cook. "A Year of Pies" ($19.95) by Ashley English offers strawberry, rhubarb and ginger hand pies for spring, pumpkin tiramisu pie in fall and pies for all the days in between. Savory pies like curried winter vegetable and galumpkis pie -- the pie version of Polish stuffed cabbage -- mix things up in the colder months.
