Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
No, that number's not a typo: here are 300 recipes for sweet pies, with fillings ranging from fruits to nuts, ice cream to custard. Haedrich, a cooking teacher and cookbook author (Apple Pie Perfect, etc.), shares an astonishing quantity of recipes, advice, pie history and musings on issues such as the butter vs. lard debate and his passion for sour cherries. His zeal and solid expertise make this book a worthy addition to the baker's bookshelf. There are 57 pages of information on pie crusts alone, but Haedrich's tone is clear and encouraging, as he addresses pie pans, rolling pins, pastry edges and more. The recipes range from All-Rhubarb Pie to more exotic offerings such as Watermelon Rind Pie and Carrot Custard Pie (Haedrich also includes 25 recipes for apple pie). Pie snobs, take note: each crust recipe gives instructions for making the pastry by hand, with an electric mixer or in a food processor. Similarly, Haedrich assures readers it's all right to use frozen fruit. Intrepid pie makers will be pleased with the recommendations throughout for other cookbooks and magazines, and the list of resources includes useful information on baker's catalogues, fruit farms and nut growers. (Oct.) Forecast: This should be a strong fall seller, pubbing in time for apple and pumpkin season. The publisher plans a $50,000 marketing campaign, including a 12-city "Pie Clinic" author tour and appearances at regional book fairs. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Haedrich is the author of more than half a dozen cookbooks with an emphasis on baking. His Apple Pie Perfect featured 100 recipes; his latest features 25 new recipes for that dish alone, along with dozens for summer fruit and berry pies, pecan and other nut pies, "personal pies," and icebox and freezer pies. He begins with an excellent introductory section before moving on to the recipes, which each include a "Recipe for Success," with helpful tips, suggestions for variations, and storage information. Haedrich has an engaging style, and his recipes are mouth-watering. For all baking collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    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.
