Overview


In addition to Mom's apple pie, here are recipes for chocolate and pecan pie, cranberry pie, strawberry and rhubarb lattice tart, and many more, 45 recipes in all. This book's duotone photos provide a nostalgic look at mid-twentieth-century America, and the recipes are for pies that are simply old-fashioned delicious. The photos focus appropriately enough around the kitchen range and dining room table--and if Mom and Dad seem a bit too formally dressed for dinner at home, we should recall that it was the way middle American households were depicted in ads and magazine features, circa 1950. The recipes for pies are easy for today's home cooks to follow, and are guaranteed to produce mouth-watering results. Many are complemented with food-related anecdotes. Here's a trip down memory lane, as well as inspiration for tasty desserts you can serve today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Seeming pre-wrapped, with their silver covers, and retro design, you'll want both of these delightful mini-cookbooks [Piece Of Cake and Easy As Apple Pie], not just for your mom, but for your mother-in-law, your sister and your dear old auntie! â?¦ How much information can fit into one of these cuties? Well, these pack a wallop! â?¦ Another thing I like about these books are the easy-to-read steps, and every once in awhile, a good quoteâ?¦ Whether you're interested in a fun new baking book or two, or want to find the perfect gift for mom, these little cookbooks are games."

—Laurie Strock, Cookbook Digest, June 2004

"For a short retro romp with rolling pin in hand, all you need is Caroline Barty's Easy as Apple Pie. â?¦ Vintage 1950's photos enhance the retro feel and recall the days before microwaves and instant everything."

Bookpage, May 2004

"For a nostalgic look at the art of old-fashioned cooking, this little book has a lot to offer. â?¦ The vintage photos from the 1950's â?¦ reflect an era that was as American as apple pie. The author tries to get homemakers away from the microwave and back to traditional ways of preparing comfort foods."
