All I can say is....FANTASTIC!!!,
This review is from: Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie (Paperback)
Having been raised by my southern grandmother, I have spent a very long time trying to just come close to one of her delicious pies. All of that training she gave me as a child on the perfect, easy pie crust flopped each time. My filling was too runny, too sour, too sweet, too...well, just too. And, yes, I've bought every pie book possible, only to have each attempt turn out inedible and my esteem riddled with disappointment. My family had given up. That was until I bought this book.
I didn't think it possible, but everyone now thinks I'm a pie genius. My husband couldn't believe the Bumble Berry Pie with the unusual shredded top crust. He says he never wants a regular top crust on a fruit pie again. Our friends ate a whole Chocolate Brownie Pecan Pie in one sitting. And the Blackberry Silk...mmmmm. I could go on and on...and not one failure.
Thank you, Mr. Haedrich. After years of failing, I'm now remembering what it's like to sit at my gran's table and wait in anticipation for that delicious pie to come out of the oven. And now my family is doing the same.
