Illustrated with vintage photos and laced with advice
on October 11, 2004
The Lost Art Of Pie Making Made Easy is a slender (72-page) gem of a specialty cookbook dedicated to passing along the pie-making wisdom of an American yesteryear to a new generation of kitchen cooks with an appreciation for old-fashion recipes that range from Double Sour Cherry Amaretto; Aunt Martha's Coconut Cream; Bourbon Pecan; and Mom's Lemon Meringue; to Honey Apple Dumplings, Louisiana Peanut; Hot Fudge Funny Cake, and Vanilla Crumb. The Lost Art Of Pie Making Made Easy is more than just another recipe collection, it is nicely enhanced throughout with such tidbits of advice as how to overcoming pie crust fear and how to host your own pie contest, to insights into just why men love pie and a pie calorie work-off system. Illustrated with vintage photos and laced with advice from 1930's era "Pie Aunts", The Lost Art Of Pie Making Made Easy will prove to be an immediately popular addition to any kitchen cookbook collection -- not to mention family dinner menu planning!
