Must Watch: “Martha Bakes” Episode 702

You don’t want to miss the next destination in Martha’s dessert tour of America -- there will be black and white cookies!

Did you know October 14th is National Dessert Day? What better way to celebrate than with a new episode of "Martha Bakes"! Martha traveled all over the U.S. to find the best regional desserts for this season (what we wouldn’t give to be on that R&D team!). Next up on her itinerary is the mid-Atlantic, which for the uninitiated, usually refers to New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia. Martha narrowed her favorites down to four desserts and perfected them for the home baker in her own kitchen. Here’s an exclusive look at the recipes.
