Lamothe is the founder of Teeny Pies, a wholesale pie-baking business based in Washington, DC. Before becoming a business owner, Lamothe undertook a year-long "tour of pie," apprenticing herself to female bakers across the country. Here the author shares knowledge gleaned from the journey, such as how to choose pie tins, master a perfect crust, and adapt full-size recipes into five-inch "teeny" pies. Lamothe includes instructions for several crusts, including whole-wheat and gluten-free, and 60-plus creations ranging from traditional (lemon meringue) to contemporary (bourbon bacon pecan) desserts. VERDICT Pie cookbooks are plentiful, but Lamothe's cheery prose, sound advice, and uncommon recipes make hers worth acquiring.
