Some pastry chefs gain fame for creating flaky pastries or melty, creamy confections, but Pop-Tarts?!

Food & Wine magazine called Stella Parks the best new pastry chef for 2012 for her "homey" desserts. Parks displays her work on the foodie website SeriousEats and has made it her mission to recreate America's favorite store-bought treats for the home kitchen. BraveTart, the cookbook, is the result. You will find taste-a-like recipes for such classics as Pop-Tarts, Fig Newtons, Oreos, Cracker Jack and Hostess cupcakes. She even includes a recipe for rainbow sprinkles! Favorite American desserts like red velvet cake and Boston cream pie also make a showing. BraveTart is part American food history lesson and all homey delight.
