KosherEye Cookbook Notes:
Some of the recipes in this cookbook call for the addition of gelatin. There are many kosher gelatin brands, but we suggest Kolatin, our favorite.

Enjoy these sample recipes from Bon Appétit Desserts: Cinnamon–Apple Pie with Raisins, Maple–Walnut Pound Cake with Maple Glaze, and Coconut Checkerboard Brownies.
