"Sweet, savory, fancy or rustic, the word evokes warmth, and love, with pillows of whipped cream or nuggets of savory jewels that melt into a buttery crust. For many of us, it has always been (and will always be) PIE. Which is why, if you know someone like me, you might grab this book and stuff it in their stocking OR face. Trust me, either would suffice. This book is serious. Go grab two. One for you and one for me." --Nicki Woo blog
This is a great cookbook for an experienced cook.
Pie seemed to be holiday fare in my house when I was growing up, and it was one of the things I always enjoyed about Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I liked that the author provided recipes for so many different pie and tart crusts, and that the book features both sweet and savory pies.
It is a wonderful book. The recipes are laid out perfectly with some nice pictures, and there is some very helpful information, even for those of us who have baked pies for years. Read morePublished 10 months ago by karmina
Overall I like this book very much, but it has problems. My four star rating is really three and a half rounded up, and even that rating is largely due to the imaginative recipes. Read morePublished 18 months ago by M. Hill
