    Great

    The Lost of Pie Making Made Easy is another gem with more historic black and white photos, old-time advertisements, tips from pie makers and of course, recipes, Swell shows us another winner! With Swell's passion and knowledge of the simpler times, or so we believe, she has created this book filled with wonderful recipes, such as: Shoofly, Louisiana Peanut and Concord Grape pie. For all pie lovers and historic cooking lovers, pick up this book too. Swell's pie book is sure to please!

    So Many Pies, So Little Time!

    After trying many of the pies in this book, I can't wait to try the rest. I've been a long time fan of pie, but never considered myself a cook. That's changed! The recipes and tips are great and have made me enthusiastic about baking myself. Plus, the book is full of fun facts, superstitions, etc.... Very entertaining, a great read.
