I baked so far the apple cranberry pie, chocolate walnut biscotti and my favorite chocolate chip cookies. While for the pie I respected the recipe almost to the letter, for the cookies I had to make some adjustments. All the things I baked tasted very good. It feels more like a cookbook written from a friend.
Actually I was not so impressed with this cookbook at first: there are only few pictures and I wish there were more. Further sometimes I find that the recipes are not concise: for instance in all the cookie recipes she suggests to rotate baking trays, which is actually a good advice, but I would have preferred to read it only once in a side note or in the introduction.
I find the author at her best while handling pies.
Here is the list all the recipes, if it can be of any help.Read more ›
This is a very helpful book if you're interested in baking tasty pies. Upon receiving this book, I made the Mixed Berry Crumb Pie. It was absolutely delicious! So delicious, I couldn't believe I made it. Not only that, it looked just like the picture on the cover. I like how the author explains every step in a way that is easy to understand, and make each recipe feel approachable. I look forward to trying other recipes in this book. Summer is here; I may try the Peach-Strawberry Crumb Pie next. And then in the fall I will make the Apple Caramel Crunch Pie. I see lots of baking in my future. This book has seriously increased my confidence in my ability to make a tasty pie with a delicious crust.
And as they say in the commercials, "But wait! There's more!". There are also recipes for cakes, bars & cookies in this book. I love applesauce cake, so I'm looking forward to trying her recipe for Applesauce Cake, made in a Bundt pan. Sounds easy, and calls for ingredients I always have on hand. Ooh, and the Maple Pecan Cake sounds fabulous. I could just go on & on. Finally a book about desserts that I can actually make.
After a short introduction the book opens with “Crusts & Toppings.” First up is the author’s “Traditional Pastry Piecrust” on pages 4-7. Along with the list of ingredients and instructions there are suggestions on other recipes to use this pie crust for as well as tips on how to do it well. This same format continues throughout the book as well as with the other four crust recipes and three topping recipes of this chapter.
“Fruit Pies” begins on page 16 and opens with “Apple Carmel Crunch Pie” I’m partial to blueberry as well as cherry pie and they are present here in the combined form of “Blueberry-Cherry Sugar-Free Pie (pages 28-29) as well a couple of other variations. A “Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie” (pages 52-53) is one of 13 other suggestions in this chapter.
If you prefer a cream filling in your pie that chapter appropriately titled “Cream Pies” comes next. “Blueberry Cream Pie” (pages 59-60), “Chocolate Silk Pie” (pages 63-64) and an “Oreo Cream Pie” on pages 73-75 among nine other pies are in this chapter.
Maybe you prefer nuts in your pies. Six recipes make up the “Nut Pies” chapter section and include the “Candy Bar Pie (pages 89-90) and the “Turtle Pecan Pie (pages 98-100).
“Whimsical Pies” comes next and is all about celebrating anything and everything. Items such as the “Birthday Cake Surprise Pie” on page 106-109) blends a vanilla cake with a pastry shell.Read more ›
