About the Author
Jessie Sheehan is the author of The Vintage Baker and the coauthor of Icebox Cakes. She writes and contributes recipes to the Washington Post, Food Network, Fine Cooking, Food52, and the Kitchn, among others; and she has appeared on the Hallmark Channel, Food Network Kitchen, Food52, and more. She lives in Brooklyn with her family.
There are two camps in baking: project bakers and on-the-fly bakers. Some people really enjoy making croissants, but more often than not you just need something delicious and quick to bring to the gathering. Jessie Sheehan gets that, which is why she created an entire book of low-effort, high-reward bakes that look like you spent all day on them, but that actually come together in about an hour or so. In Snackable Bakes (Countryman Press) there is no resting, chilling, proofing or bain-marie-ing; just whisking or mixing, setting and forgetting. And though dedicated project bakers might not feel blown away by the selection of simple but tasty quick breads, muffins, cupcakes and scones, there’s no denying that sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day — and that’s when this cookbook will be your best friend.

Sheehan (The Vintage Baker), the self-anointed “queen of easy-peasy baking,” brings the irrepressible enthusiasm of her viral TikTok videos to a sumptuous collection of sweet treats designed to be made in under an hour. As someone who “despise[s] cleanup,” Sheehan’s recipes cut out the fuss, most often coming together without creamed butter or stand mixers (“except when making... the best no-bake cheesecake you’ve ever had”). To streamline preparation, she sensibly suggests the sacrilege—mixing wet and dry ingredients together rather than separately—a technique that precludes over-mixing. Other clever tips include dropping half the required blackberries atop the batter for a lemon yogurt loaf cake instead of folding them in (for better fruit distribution), and adding sweetened condensed milk to crisped rice squares for extra chewiness. Notable standouts among her timesaving brownies, cookies, bars, and cupcakes include a 20-minute raspberry crumb-topped pie with a press-in dough crust, and fried summer peach fritters that can be assembled in the time “it takes your oil to come to temp.” Sheehan’s confectionery devotion extends beyond the oven to the likes of no-bake orange cream pie, no-churn peppermint stick ice cream, and a pillowy fool (whipped cream layered with fruit and cookies) flavored with nectarines and thyme. This excellent guide would satisfy just about any sugar craving.
