  • Sixteen years ago, Jean Hee released her first desserts cookbook, Hawaii’s Best Local Desserts. Almost a decade later, by popular demand Jean released Hawaii’s New Best Local Desserts, a collection of recipes that couldn’t be finished on time for her first book (Jean rigorously test and double tests each recipe) and ones that had been passed on by friends and family in the years that followed, some geared for quick preparation for the busy lifestyle that had become the norm. This newest book, The Best of the Best Hawaii Local Desserts, is a collection of Jean’s favorite dessert recipes compiled from all her cookbooks—not just the desserts ones—so they can be found in one convenient volume. For this new compilation, Jean hand-picked the most popular and favorite recipes which she tested and retested. The result is a collection of easy-to-prepare desserts that use ingredients found in any pantry as well as elegant, made-from-scratch masterpieces for those who have the time to bake on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The recipes take advantage of Hawaii’s bounty of fruit. There’s plenty of bread pudding recipes, chocolate galore, and a wide variety of cookies, bars, tarts and cupcakes that are sure to be an instant hit with any crowd.
