Overview

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. This edition is in two volumes. The second volume ISBN is 9781459605336.

    So Many Amazing Recipes - Minus Pictures

    I absolutely LOVED this book; there are so many recipes and they are all so amazing. The reason I was slightly dissatisfied is because I was not aware there weren't any pictures in the book. I think it's very important to make that clear, because if I had known that I wouldn't have purchased the book.

    'Thank you...I love you.'- Gir

    I absolutely adore this book! It is my pie Bible. Great details, recipies that are sure to please even the most picky of pallates. Haedrich has masterful skills in pie pastries. I am using this book, and solely this book, for recipes to start my own pie business, which I just took my first step towards! I was so happy when I got this book, that I seriously started to cry- no joke.

    100s of Recipes, 16 Pictures

    This is not a bad pie book. The upfront discussion is decent, if way more chatty than I would normally like. But I'm more than a little irked to see that the 16 gorgeous pictures included in the nookbook sample are the *only* pie pictures in the book. There's hundreds of recipes in here, but I search (and cook) with my eyes, and I can't help but feel that the book was a little misrepresented (though possibly unintentionally so). Normally I wouldn't leave a bad review just for that, but since you can't currently return nookbooks, I thought I'd warn everyone else.

    Wonderful Pie Bible, that is a KEEPER!

    I made my first pies over the weekend from this book and could not have found it easier or tastier! This shows how easy it can be to make made-from-scratch pies a staple, especially on the verge of the holiday season. He has so many delicious recipes in here and I can tell you from personal experience so far, the apple pies are DIVINE. If you have any interest in expanding on pies or finally got the courage to tackle pastry pies from scratch, start here! :) He has tons of helpful info throughout so you are never in doubt.

    The Ultimate Pie Bible

    I love this book and like the reviewer before me, I consider Ken Haedrich the ultimate pie baker guru. I fell in love with this book the moment I opened the pages.

    Excellent Highly Recommed it

    It's the only book that I use now for pies. I have made quite a few of the recipes and they have all turned out amazing. Easy to follow directions and the best and easiest recipe for pie crust.
