I Love Pie,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Perfect Pies: The Best Sweet and Savory Recipes from America's Pie-Baking Champion (Hardcover)
I am a home baker...and do much more than most. I've made almost 500 pies this year...for church parties, weddings, holidays, and my family. I'm always looking for tips and tricks and twists on old recipes that update old tastes and traditions and this book gave me a few new things to try. Of course, I love the traditional standards and sometimes you just can't improve on perfection, but with beautiful photos and clear instructions using common ingredients, pie making is made easy for everyone. And this book gives me new recipes to try for the savory pies as I am mostly a sweep pie baker. Always enjoy expanding my knowledge and recipe base.

It just thrills me to find someone that loves making pie as much as I do! Just a tip - have you tried adding vinegar to your crust recipe? I come from a family of pie bakers.

Why add vinegar to a crust recipe? I use vi near for many things but not my pie crusts. So, just what does it do? Does it change the colour? Thank you ever so much.
