I’ve had some great Amish food in my time, so I was excited to review this cookbook. It’s full of traditional and contemporary foods from the Amish community. There are some positives and negatives, though. On the up side, I grew up on what we called Fried Dried Apple Pies. Here they are called Half Moon Pies (because of their shape), but whatever the name, they are absolutely delicious! Another traditional dish is the Potato Cakes. Now, not everyone loves these (some of my kids were not impressed), but I grew up on them, and they are delightful with just some butter slathered on top or you can drizzle with honey or syrup. On the down side was the recipe for Pecan Pie. I LOVE pecan pie!! It’s a staple in our house for Thanksgiving, so I happily prepared this version. Unfortunately, you couldn’t even really taste the pecans–there was just an overwhelming taste of molasses. As much as my family loves pecan pie, this one heartbreakingly went in the garbage. There is so much more in this cookbook, and you’re sure to find plenty to enjoy. If you’re not a molasses fan, though, skip the pecan pie. I received a copy of this book from Skyhorse Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
