Absolutely the Best Desserts Cookbook


(6/16/08) – In spring of 2007, the McLeod Health Foundation proudly released "Absolutely the Best Desserts," a cookbook inspired by the late Ann Paxton, a long time volunteer of the McLeod Foundation and wife of the late J. Erwin Paxton, McLeod Health Board of Trustees’ Chairman. Those who were close to Mrs. Paxton knew that she was an avid baker who frequently used the word "absolutely."

For this reason, her close friends Carolyn Jones and Betty Hester were instrumental in pulling together a committee to compile a dessert cookbook in her memory with proceeds benefiting the McLeod Cancer Center for Treatment and Research.

Cookbooks are available for $19.00 at the following locations:

  • The Horned Puffin
  • Porter’s Gift Shop
  • HobNob Gourmet
  • Patricia’s
  • McLeod Bear Essentials Gift Shop
  • McLeod Great Expectations Gift Shop
  • McLeod Foundation office.
