Overview

Teeny Lamothe is a young woman on a mission—and the mission is pie. Charming, passionate, determined, Teeny traveled America to work with the country's best bakers and learn their techniques, tricks, and wisdom. Now she shares the fruits of her apprenticeship—the crumbs and crusts of her crusade—in Teeny’s Tour of Pie, a delectable journey into total pie immersion.

Here are more than 55 pies, sweet and savory, plus a complete crust primer, and all of it seasoned throughout with Teeny’s humor and inspiration. There are fruit pies: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Lemony Blueberry Crumb Pie, Rosemary-Infused Caramel Apple Pie. Cream pies: Zested Lime Curd Pie, French Silk Pie. Traditional pies—Sweet Potato Pie, Shoofly Pie, Chess Pie—and unexpected pies—Peanut Butter Brownie Pie with a Pretzel Crust, Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie. And savory pies, too, like Thanksgiving Dinner Pie with a Stuffing Crumble. Teeny is a gifted baker and writer who demystifies every step. She explains why to add vodka to the pie crust; what to do when the dough is sticky or tears; how to cut and weave a lattice topping. There are the 5 Commandments of Crust and more than 10 no-fail crust recipes, even including one gluten-free. Plus she shows how to make “teeny” pies—her specialty, using a 5-inch pie pan—from the recipes.

Teeny’s Tour of Pie captures both the timeless, homespun appeal of pie and its very timely popularity, right down to the “bakery box” cover with its embossed “string,” flaps, and spot-laminated “tape.” Includes profiles of pie-makers, personal stories, and gorgeous full-color beauty shots and step-by-step photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
04/15/2014
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.

    I love this book!

    After following Teeny on Facebook for several months and waiting anxiously for release of her book, I was so happy to finally have it in my hand, in my kitchen. Teeny's recommendations for basic pie-making tools are so REAL. My pie-making techniques, learned from previous generations are so validated! The recipes and accompanying narrative are easily understood and accommodating. You can go 100% with her way, or simply incorporate some of her ideas along with your tried and true methodologies. I dove right in, taking all her recommendations (such as vodka in my pie crust) and made her signature "Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie", an immediate huge hit with my family. I love Teeny's story and applaud her success in pie making and business. "Teeny's Tour of Pies" is my new favorite gift for friends and family.

    The best example of the simple way to make pie easy

    I have read many many cook books, this one simple takes you from one step to the next with such ease. The tips to make a fantastic pie, makes the process soooooo simple. And the recipes are to die for. Earl gray is so soothing and the peacan, bacon bourban is out of this world.
