Overview


Allison Kave made pies as a hobby, until one day her boyfriend convinced her to enter a Brooklyn pie-making contest. She won. In fact, her pies were such a hit that she turned pro.
                                      
People can’t get enough of her Bourbon Ginger Pecan pie, her whimsical Root Beer Float Pie, her addictive Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie. And the crusts—oh, the crusts!—are so impossibly flaky, so utterly delicious, that pie eaters around the world will rejoice that Allison has at last divulged her techniques and tips. Organized by month, the book includes pies for every sweet tooth, from inventive pies like Chocolate Lavender Teatime to old-school comfort pies like Candy Apple.

Editorial Reviews

Matt Lewis

"There are about 100 good reasons to add First Prize Pies to your cookbook library. However, it is the recipe (and photo) for Nutella Pie that will forever be burned into your subconscious. It's the kind of thing that will haunt your sweet dreams for the rest of your life."
author of Around My French Table Dorie Greenspan

"Allison's pies, open and closed, fruit and nut, custard and cream, short, tall, rustic and refined, are the stuff of memory. Her recipes for from-the-heart pies are bound to become the sweet dreams of a generation."
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Samantha Bee

"With detailed instructions and delicious, inventive recipes by the always delightful Allison Kave, this book will convince you that not only can you bake a pie, you should bake a pie; if you're smart, you must do it right now. FedEx me a slice of Samantha Bee when you're done."
author of Dessert FourPlay Johnny Iuzzini

"First Prize Pies offers pies for every major life occasion: The Kentucky Derby. Halloween. The After Party. The Morning After. There is always—always!—a need for these pies."
Eater National

“The flavors are fun and, as the title implies, inventive, and they will get you out of any kind of pie rut in which you may currently be languishing.”
Renato Poliafito

"Make room for Allison's First Prize Pies. It's a necessary book—an encyclopedia of pie porn. Occasional pie bakers will be inspired and pie pros will be reinvigorated. If you don't make her Banana Split Ice Cream Pie at least once, then something is seriously wrong with you."

    A beautiful pie cookbook!

    I love this book! It has simple instructions for many different types of crusts which is very helpful. The pie recipes all sound delicious and the pictures back that up. I love that they are organized by month. The author has a great sense of humor which makes this a great read and not just another ordinary cookbook. This is a very creative cookbook that I will enjoy for a long time.
