The dessert pies are of course adorable and sweet, but I especially love the savory section and that there's so many options!

I usually don't care about ingredients I am allergic to in cookbooks because there are so many other recipes it doesnt matter.

Do you or someone you know love to bake? Maybe you're always wondering which new cookbooks are worth the money or make a good gift. When it comes to finding new and interesting recipes for baked goods many home cooks search with little real results. For cookbook collectors the expectation of getting a truly new recipe is somewhere between 1:20 and sometimes as little as 1:50. This year, you can turn to "Mini Pies" with confidence; the size and number of recipes prove to have been carefully culled to make it a powerful collection.

The book includes a number of crust recipes ranging from traditional to vegan. Crust is often the trickiest part of putting together a successful pie. Ms. Beaver and Greenseth give you options that work, work well, and are well suited to the mini-dessert craze all around us. You may find that one of these will replace your go-to recipe for pie crust of any size.

You'll also find unexpected combinations. Based on the test pies, you'll love the new ideas. Well, we certainly did. I tried seven different recipes--all of them got great reviews. Pear is often underused in pies but "Mini Pies" includes this fruit by contrasting it with interesting combinations such as cranberry or blackberry. Both are less-traditional pairings that improve each fruit in the process. The Ginger Peach was also a winner.

The Pear pies tasted great and I rolled the crust too thin (warning!) so we just ate them from the muffin tin. While I did not make any of the recommended decorative topping pieces, the little, leftover bits of crust would work perfectly. Our family tradition is to butter them, add some cinnamon sugar and eat them hot out of the oven.

One section of this book really stands out: Nut & Savory Pies.

The pictures are wonderful, the recipes sound great. The only problem I have is that in some of the recipes, the amounts are confusing - for instance, in the recipe for Susanne's Lemon Meringue, it calls for 0/0 cup sugar. There are several instances where measurements show up that way. I'm hoping that at some point there will be a correction, either through their website or (even better) a version with corrected measurements.

Once that happens, this will be a killer book, I think! For concept and for a nicely photographed book, I'm giving it 3 stars. For complete directions, I'd bump it to 5.

UPDATE!!! A fix is in the works for the broken fractions on the Kindle version! Based on that info and the authors being so awesome, this HAS to be a 5-star rating!

Update on 11/17/2012 - the fix that was in the works has never taken place. I've had other Kindle updates on other books I've purchased, this one is still a mess. So, if you want this in Kindle format, be aware that there are still recipe amounts that are missing.

Living in Seattle I have been enjoying delicious baked goods by Mini Empire Bakery at events in the area for a couple years now. I was so excited to find out that Mini Empire owners Morgan & Christy were putting out a book to share the secrets behind their bite sized treats! Well, it arrived, and I could immediately tell it was going to be my new super weapon in creating amazing spreads for parties. So far I have have been stuck on experimenting with the Pie In A Jar recipe variation on pg 25. It is SO easy and makes for a great dessert to split with my husband on a weeknight after dinner. I have a few that I made up and keep in the freezer so that they are ready to take out before dinner and pop in the oven after we eat.

I can't wait to try the savory recipes for appetizers and I love that there are gluten free and vegan variations so that I can keep anyone happy no matter their dietary restrictions. This book is a definite must buy! I now know the tricks of these two talented bakers and get to show off my newfound skills during the holidays when I bring beautiful little pies to the parties that I attend.

This is a wonderful mini book (yes, the book itself if quite small, as are the pies)! The pictures are nice, and while tiny, the book is of good quality. I spilled on it while baking, and it wiped up nicely.

There are recipe options for vegans, which is great for many of my friends.

Recipes do not require any fancy equipment or ingredients to make these delicious little pies. All recipes can be baked in mini muffin tins, or mini mason jars.

The jar pies are my absolute favorite, because you can freeze them and keep for later! The recipes are fun, relatively easy to make, and delicious to eat.

I highly recommend this book if you love pie, mini desserts, or baking!

Having eaten ten or so of the different pies in this little book, I'd recommend them to anyone. The book is laid out exceptionally well with pictures, cute tag lines and easy to follow organization. My favorite recipe would have to be the Bourbon Pecan Pie--which is great a accompaniment to any sort of Fall or Winter dinner.

Mini Pies: Adorably Delicious Recipes for Your Favorite Treats by Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth is a collection of recipes and instructions for miniature pies.

The authors run Mini Empire Bakery in Seattle, a bakery that specializes in tiny treats, with options for restricted diets.

When my husband saw this book, he said "It's a cute little pie book about cute little pies. You love it don't you?" It is a little book! It's 6x6 inches square, with 128 pages and 29 pie fillings and 7 pie crust recipes. It's simply adorable, and this is the kind of book that would have thrilled me in my stocking when I was younger.

The pies are made in muffin tins and topped with traditional toppings like whipped cream, meringue and a vegan whipped topping recipes, or with little cutouts made from crust. Along with traditional crust recipes, there is also a vegan pie crust and a gluten free crust. The instructions for making the crusts, rolling them out and putting them in the muffin tins are clearly written and easy to follow if you're a first time pie baker. There are also instructions for jar pies which use little mason canning jars as both the pie pan and the serving dish.

Each of the fillings and crust recipes are enough for 12 pies. Fantastic mix of pie recipes. While they could have just done traditional pies and filled the cookbook, they didn't. A lot of the recipes have foodie touches and twists to make them a bit fancier. The fillings are made from scratch. No jarred pie fillings here! So there are some very traditional pies like key lime, pumpkin and chocolate cream, there is also an Apple Chai pie which adds more seasoning and flavor than just the cinnamon that's usually used.
