If I'm going to put in the work to make pie, I'd rather just bake a full-size one, but I love the idea of the individual servings this cookbook promotes. I did try the Broccoli, Cheddar, and Mushroom Flipside pies. They turned out well and the recipe is one I will make again. It was like a savory turnover or calzone. I haven't tried the Piejar recipes yet but I do like the idea of baking individual pies in small canning jars.
The Piepops were the biggest surprise in this cookbook. They are round bite-size turnover style pies baked with a lollipop stick inserted. They would be fun for kids or as unique appetizers at a casual gathering.
Sweet recipes include Caramel-Pecan and Mango Raspberry Lemon Piepops, Strawberry Rhubarb Ginger Flipsides, Campfire S'Mores Petit-5's, Peach Ricotta Honey Piejars, and Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie, to name a few. Savory recipes include Three Cheese and Onion Cutie Pies; Salmon, Cream Cheese, and Dill Petit-5's; Egg, Potato, Cheese, and Bacon Flipsides; and Curry Veggie Piejars. There are 40 recipes in the cookbook including a variety of crusts.
This is such a fun and unique cookbook that I think anyone who enjoys baking will enjoy.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
Cutie Pies is a good introduction to making pies, as it features simple recipes with basic ingredients, and is all explained well for both the beginner and the novice. It also allows for a choice of pie crust to make, with vegan and gluten-free options you can make yourself. Cone expands on the standard berry pie concept (of which she gives us quite a few recipes), and serves up hors d'oeuvres ideas as well, such as petite Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella- and keeps it easy and accessible the entire time.
Cutie Pies may not be the most useful or most used cookbook in your collection, but if you are looking for great recipes for pies to impress, this will fit that niche. It is also a good selection for those who are following a vegan or gluten-free diet. I know where I will be getting an idea to present at my next gathering- for appetizer and dessert.
The size she directs to cut the dough for the mini pies is twice as large as it needs to be.
The filling for the lemon blueberry pie had a nice flavor but so much cornstarch that the finished 'pie' was a solid rubber ball type product.
The butter crust recipe is very good. I would not buy this book just for that 1 good recipe tho.
A much better book for cute mini pies is: Mini Pies: Adorable and Delicious Recipes for Your Favorite Treats by Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth.
Its recipes are reliable.
The book is colorful and has lots of pictures, which I love. But I will be wary of making more things from this book for events or company. I will have to do more experimenting before feeding any of it to other people.
