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.
