A cookbook of treats from the Great Plains to satisfy every sweet tooth.

Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, Goldenrod Pastries is a community bakery with an ambitious and talented baker at the helm. Angela Garbacz learned at her mother’s and grandmothers’ elbows, mixing up cookies and rolling sweet buns. Her training continued in New York City before she returned home and opened her dream shop.

From her grandma’s famous peach coffee cake to caramel-covered pecan rolls, lemon meringue pie and frosted brownies to fluffernutter buns and confetti cookies, Garbacz’s pastries come out of the oven perfectly golden and regularly sell out. At her bakery, she creates delicious treats without dairy or gluten, but every recipe in this book can be made with butter and all-purpose flour just as easily as any alternative. With her positive attitude and confident voice, Garbacz makes it easy and fun to bake a perfect dessert that everyone can eat. This beautiful cookbook—the photography, the philosophy, and the desserts!—is an instant classic.

Praise For…

Angela Garbacz is the future of pastry. She possesses a rare mix of talent, diligence, and compassion, which she ignites with the spark of humor and wit. The beauty of Angela is that she prioritizes the art of baking and flavor while solving for the needs of otherwise ignored eaters.
— Dave Arnold, author of Liquid Intelligence

I've wanted Angela to have a cookbook from the first day I met her! She's a generous baker who wants everyone to enjoy her treats, regardless of any allergies or aversions, and that comes through loud and clear in every recipe.
— Kerry Diamond, Editor in Chef, Cherry Bombe Magazine

Angela's recipes have the magic that every modern home baker is after: comforting, crave-worthy, and infinitely adaptable. In Perfectly Golden, her joyful collection of all-American treats are brimming with Midwestern charm.
