300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie

Finally, there's a book with all the recipes and tips home cooks need to make every kind of pie. The delectable pies range from old-fashioned classics and traditional favorites to new creations and easy and delicious refrigerator and freezer pies. Novices and experienced pie bakers alike will find reassuring advice and time-tested tips on equipment, ingredients, judging baking times, rolling and shaping dough, and everything else needed to get through to the last scrumptious bite of homemade pie.

Pie is the most comprehensive and accessible book ever written on the subject. This showcase of Ken Haedrich's passion for pie represents a lifelong quest to demonstrate how easy and delicious homemade pie can be. Every recipe has been tested for success and features reassuring advice and specific tips. Pie celebrates the best pie recipes and traditions-both old and new-and is the only resource a home baker needs.

Although Haedrich's scope is exhaustive, his approach to pie making is relaxed. An instructive, anecdotal introductory chapter walks home bakers through crust making, whether by food processor, electric mixer, or hand, as well as how to roll it out, what kind of rolling pins to use, which pans give a perfectly browned bottom crust, how to prevent burned edges, and how to make decorative edges, cutouts, and latticework.

He answers all the questions home bakers want to know: What will the crust look like when it is being mixed? How large should the crust be rolled? What should the filling look like when the pie is done? Why is it important to cool pies properly?

Every kind of dessert pie is here, whether double crust, single crust, graham cracker or cookie crust, skillet pies, or hand pies. There are all kinds of fruit pies (Pear and Fig Pie, Mother of All Apple Pies), summer berry pies (Deep Dish Blackberry Peach Pie), chiffon pies (Lime Chiffon Pie), cream and custard pies (Sugar Cream Pie), icebox and ice cream pies (Bittersweet Chocolate Turtle Pie), nut pies (Caramel Coffee Hazelnut Pie), and pies bursting with traditional fall flavors (Spiced Pumpkin Indian Pudding Pie), as well as meringue pies, cheese pies, custard pies, and more.

5 out of 5
Pros: Helpful, Well Written
Cons: None
High on pie, low on pictures.
I use it for home baking and it is wonderful. The directions are straight forward, clear, and concise with helpful tid-bits scattered throughout. There are more than enough recipes to fill almost any pie niche, from apple to ricotta, and all which I have tried are delicious. A personal favorite is the apple sauce pie. There is a color insert, the book however is not in color, and doesn't have pictures to accompany every recipe. A worth while addition to any cookbook repertoire.
