Forget the calories, cholesterol and carbs. This cookbook is for people who LOVE A GOOD DESSERT. Everything in here is great. The reason? Fat and sugar! The recipes are loaded. And, are you sitting down? Betty recommends that your pie crusts be made with LARD. Yeah, that old four-letter word.

This is the cookbook I pull out when I'm fixing dessert for company, folks who are too polite to ask if I used egg-substitute or non-transfat oils and who aren't afraid to ask for seconds. Every pie, cake, cookie recipe delivers, and my guests go away happy.

Save all those healthy things for everyday eating. For that once in a while smash hit dessert, you need Betty!

Being a native Minnesotan I have frequented Betty's Pies along the North Shore of Lake Superior since I can remember. The food is delicious but the deserts are AMAZING. I have so many fond memories with my family eating her pies. So when I found out that you could order and have pies shipped to your home I was thrilled, until I saw the final price. It turns out that Betty released a cook book with all her original recipes for a fraction of the price of shipping a pie to your home. You would be hard pressed to find a desert that isn't in the book.

Even if you have no idea who or what Betty's Pies is, but love great deserts, you will want to pick up a copy of this book!

I bought this book because my daughter inlaw said it had the best recipe for french silk pie she has every tasted. Well, we made the pie and it was great but to sweet. So I re-did the french silk with 1/2 cup less sugar in the pie and it was better tasting then even bakers square. I haven't had a chance to try any other recipes yet. But if this recipe is anything close to the others this lady has, it will be the best book on the market. I am very happy with buying this cook book.
You will be the talk of any party or family gathering if you make this french silk pie.

My sister in law always made the best pies so I finally asked her for a couple of her recipes. She pulled out her "Betty's Pies" cookbook and told me that was her secret! Love the recipes in this book!

The recipes are good, I do wish they would have put some of the newer pies in an updated cookbook.

I have eaten her pies and they are delicious. I love making pies and am having great successful fun following Betty's recipes. I not only bought myself a book, but gave Betty's Pies Favorite Recipes book to each of my daughter-in-laws for Christmas. Betty also writes about how her Betty's Pie Resturant began, an interesting history of the area along the western shore of Lake Superior.

I enjoyed reading it. I bought more than one copy for Christmas gifts. I was rather surprised at the amount of convenience foods used in the pie recipes. I expected more from-scratch recipes, and that's the major reason for the 3 stars. I can't say how well the recipes work, as I have not tried any of them since they are gifts to be given, but obviously since Betty's is very successful, they must be good. It does contain some more inventive pies, such as Raisin Buttermilk, and Toasted Coconut Lemon. This is not solely a pie book. It's Favorite Recipes from Betty's Pies so it also contains cookies and bars, cheesecakes, breads and quick breads. I enjoyed reading about the history of Betty's Pies. The book is attractive and nicely done.

I received this cookbook as a birthday gift a few years ago. I love the cookbook. My favorite pie to make is her French Silk Pie. I have been to the actual restaurant and it is wonderful. I have bought this book twice now to give as a gift.
