5.0 out of 5 stars Classically simple, August 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies (Hardcover)
I wanted a cookbook just for simple classic pies and that is what I got. This book doesn't have any snooty pies only like; triple berry razzle dazzle caramel pie, only the classics that everyone should know. Apple, strawberry, peach, coconut cream, banana cream, strawberry daiquiri, Grasshopper, shoofly and mincemeat pies are all found in this book.

I enjoyed reading about Mrs. Rowe and her restaurant mainly because I know that these recipes are used on a regular basis by a professional. There are lots of little tips such as meringue pies should have more slices cut than a fruit pie, this is something I didn't know but it makes sense.

This is now my go to book when making pie and because of all the tips I would recommend this to a novice baker.

There are 6 pie crust recipes.
21 fruit, berry and nut pies
18 cream and custard pies
9 frozen and icebox pies
and 8 cupboard pies, these can be kept at room temperature
plus a couple sauces, whipped cream and meringue recipes.

Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies   [MRS ROWES LITTLE BK OF SOUTHER] [Hardcover] I just wanted to thank you for your very informative review of this cookbook. The information you provided has helped me decide to purchase this book. Not at all subjective like most reviews, but the lowdown on what is included in the book!

Thank you for your review. Telling me the variety of pie crusts and different types of pie available in this book won me over. I am ordering it with the confidence it will give me the variety of pie information to make purchase worth it. Yum Yum
