Overview

Pie recipes galore come in this lovely pie book, and it has a clickable table of contents in the beginning of the book to make finding recipes easier.

From the author:

Pie. Delicious pie.

Is there anything more wonderful than homemade pie? I don’t think so. I love pie, and I love making them. I don’t, however, like to work so hard that I can’t enjoy the pie later. These recipes are all easy, don’t require a lot of skill in the kitchen, and they don’t take a great deal of time. They’re hardly any work at all, in fact, but they taste like you slaved over a hot stove all day long.

There are as many pie recipes as there are stars in the sky, and there’s a reason for that: They’re easy to make, easy to transport, and they make wonderful gifts for friends and family. Pies have been around for a long, long time.

Pies in the modern world are mostly sweet, and eaten as dessert. According to historians, ancient Egyptians baked the first pie around 9500 B.C. They made rustic pie shells with oat, wheat, rye, and barley, then filled them with honey and baked them over hot coals.
The Romans made pie from everything; sweet pies, meat pies, and even seafood pies. One of their favorite dessert treats was a cheesecake-like dessert baked in a pastry shell.

In medieval times, the pies were mostly meat pies, and the pie shell itself was inedible. It was basically a container for the food. Eventually, after bringing their recipes to the colonies with them, pies evolved, and became part of our culture. Pioneer women often served pie with every meal. It’s not unusual to crack open a cookbook from long ago and find many, many pie recipes.

Some of the pie recipes in this book have old roots, and some do not. All the recipes have been tweaked and twisted over the course of several years, making them uniquely my own creation.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
