So far, I have only tried three recipes, the strawberry rhubarb pie, chocolate chess pie and chocolate angel pie.
The strawberry rhubarb was the best strawberry rhubarb pie I have ever made, and I bake several each year. I didn't have to prebake the crust or the filling, and it came out really good. The chocolate chess pie was creamy and good. The chocolate angel pie was my first angel pie ever. The chocolate layer really needs to be eaten with a bit of the meringue layer for all of the sweetness to work. I am still delighted with this book. None of the recipes so far have been disasters or bad. I made the Kentucky Bluegrass pie with Alaskan cowbush cranberries instead of regular cranberries, and it was wonderful.
The recipes in this book include chocolate pies, Nation of Islam style bean pies, summer fruit pies, fall fruit pies, Chess pies, buttermilk and sweet potato pies. There is a section describing how to make pie crusts. Readers have their choice of using butter, lard or canola oil crusts. The book is peppered throughout with real tips about baking pies and crusts.Read more ›
I got interested in recreating authentic southern pecan pie after I enjoyed the house recipe while dining at the Eclectic Café in Memphis, TN (you really must go there if you're passing through Memphis). I picked up Southern Pies in the hopes that at least one of the pecan pie recipes contained within could approximate the fantastic pie served at Eclectic Café. I wanted to save my formal review of the cookbook until I'd attempted the pecan pie recipe but the results of the two recipes I have already tried have been so great that I didn't want to sit on my opinions any longer.
Hubby and I baked the Strawberry Rhubarb Lattice Pie a couple of weeks ago. The pie was perfectly sweet- not cloying but not tart either (if you like a more sour flavor you can cut the sugar back). It was also very pretty. It got such rave reviews in our house that we made it again last week for our brother and sister-in-law in Seattle while visiting them. I roped in my nephew as my sous chef and in no time at all the whole family was chowing down on the still warm pie fresh from the oven.
Earlier this week I tackled the Amazing Coconut Pie. This is a custard based coconut pie that forms its own crust during the baking.Read more ›
This beautiful book has thick, semi-glossy, splatter resistant pages for messy cooks like myself! It will stays open without force, making it easy to follow while cooking. The pages wipe clean easily as well. When splatter or spills occur, just wipe it clean before it dries.I love that! That feature is my another favorite of mine - second only to the astonishingly beautiful pictures.
If I owned a restaurant, I would frame the photos and mount in sight of each hungry customer! Offer them to purchase "to go" if you live in a resort area...people on vacation love having pies on hand without having to cook!
Seriously, 'Southern Pies' is worth buying for the pictures alone, a feature that makes it great gift for any recipe book lover. A must have for a cookbook lover's library.
Oh! About the recipes...
The recipes are well organized and the outcome of every one I've tried has been a big hit! Try serving the 'Muscadine Grape Hull Pie' at a social gathering - you might hear something like "somebody's Momma must be in the kitchen"! We southerners love our muscadines and this is the first time I've seen a recipe for muscadine HULLS! A 5 star winner!Read more ›
