This CIA title includes more than 150 recipes for savory and sweet pies and tarts, ranging in skill level from beginner to expert. Baking purists will rejoice in the inclusion of weights and measurements (as well as volume). From flan rings to hand pie molds, to pizza stones, a primer on baking equipment, along with a concise yet thorough ingredients section gets home bakers up and running before getting their hands dusty with flour while preparing Apple Tarte Tatin, Black Bean and Corn Empanadas, Concord Grape Pie, and a Honey Orange Tart. A selection of recipes include easy-to-make swaps and additions—taking a tomato, mozzarella, and basil galette and changing out the cheese selection for goat, as well as a pecan pie that is elevated to the next flavor level with the addition of chocolate chunks or cranberries. A solid, trustworthy title that is sure to come off the shelf even after the holiday baking rush. (Mar.)
