Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Another addition to the recent spate of single-subject cookbooks, this volume takes the trend to a monomaniacal extreme. Offering 60 variations of pies-fruit-filled, cream, custard, chiffon or "candy"-this compilation focuses entirely on dessert; no savory pies or tarts confuse its mission. But the recipes are easy to follow and generally appealing: a Maple Nutmeg Custard Pie is decadently sweet and eggy, and an old-fashioned Peach Pie tastes like the essence of summer. Moreover, it's comforting to find recipes for certain heirloom pies, like the Chess and the Tyler, named for John Tyler, the 10th president of the United States. This cookbook has its tics, however. Only some of the pies are photographed, leaving the appearance of the Chocolate Tweed Pie and the Date Bar Pie entirely up to the reader's imagination. The recipe for Cranberry Mincemeat Pie gives no instructions on how to prepare mincemeat. And the author tends to overexplain the obvious, reminding his audience that before buying a large rolling pin, one should make sure one's "work area allows... ample room to maneuver," and that pie pans are also called pie plates and pie dishes. This is information that the true pie-lover surely already knows.

I found this cookbook full of delicious recipes as well as excellent basic tips for young cooks. Unfortunately, there were few pictures and no step by step pictures of how to roll out a piecrust, etc.

I received this book as a gift a year and a half ago. My goal was to make every pie in the book which I am about to complete, and what a great journey it is. All of the pies are straightforward in their execution but sophisticated in taste. I've been making notes on each page about how the pies have turned out. I'll be sad when they're done but the book will stay with me forever because I get requests for the pies again and again and again.

Oh, and the Orange Chiffon alone is worth the cover price.

If there is one thing that I would have with me, besides water, on a deserted island... It would be pie. The warm, flaky crusts; the cooling, aromatic fruits; the flavors of the crust and the flowing juices... I carry this book with me everywhere. That is how much I LOVE pie.

In this book you will find great instruction. Mr. Carrol walks you step by step into creating the perfect crust, to suit you, the perfect filling, again to suit you and lastly the perfect topping, all for you. You will not be dissapointed. It is a book composed of Love.

Enjoy.

I am a sucker for Chronicle Books cookbooks. They are beautiful. This one is no different.

Checked it out from the library and the kids and I tried five recipes, all delicious! The Coconut-Macadamia Cream Pie was unbelievable. One complaint: not a picture with every recipe. While I would prefer to see every pie, (not only to see what I'll be making, but to check if my final product came out right) I'm willing to overlook this one fault.

I have never been successful with my own pie crust, but following his directions, I actually succeeded in a producing a light, flaky, delicious crust. Needless to say, this one is becoming part of my permanent library.

This is a truly wonderful book. I make many pastries and pies for my family and friends, and every recipe I've used from this book has been a smash hit! The apple pie, berry pie, pear pie, coconut custard pie, chocolate walnut pie, and many more have been completely devoured by those I've given them to. Also, there is a section about crust making that has the best recipe for a basic pie crust. People always comment on how particularly crispy and flaky my crust is. There is also a small section on different sauces for the pies. The butterscotch sauce on the apple pie is divine! I just purchased a copy of this book for my mother-in-law who keeps asking where each of my delicious pie recipes come from. I absolutely recommend this book!
