Right from the start this book alarmed me. In chapter 1- pie crust. The recipe calls for 1 and a quarter tablespoon of flour? That has to be a VERY small pie. Then you add half of a small cup of chilled or frozen butter? And half of a small cup of ice water. Now I am really confused. At this point I do not trust any of the recipes.Some of the recipes look really good but I feel the need to google them and compare the ingredients to what is in this book.
Overall a good beginners cookbook. The very first recipe for pie dough is way wrong. 1 1/4 TBSP flour to make a pie crust?? I am pretty sure it meant 1 1/4 Cup. What is a small 1/2 cup? More than a third cup? How much liquid? I would not rely on these recipes.
The thought of homemade pies sounded great until I read the recipes, who ever heard of measuring butter or ice water by the small cup? The recipes sound very good but who can trust the amounts? I would have to compare to other recipes, almost easier to find the recipes on pinterest! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest unbiased review
This is a well written book for the most part with a few editing errors. I also think there is some kind of issuewith the pie crust recipe because there should be better information on how much butter to use. Half of asmall cup? Most of the recipes appear to be ok otherwise. There are dessert recipes we expect to see anda lot of others that are for meals. A good book if you are wanting to make pies. Just watch the ingredients!The instructions could be better also!I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.
Pie Cookbook: 25 Fantastic Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie (Pie Cookbook Book, Pie recipes, Pies)Recipes are some like my mother and mother in law had. not really measurements, just a feeling of how much to use.if dough is sticky add more flour. if too dry, add more liquid. i prefer, especially when making pies to have a healthier option by using olive oil and not butter or shortening.Rather lacking in ingredient list. Didn't make it very far with this book.
While this book has many pie recipes there were some errors in recipes, and few variations of recipes which should have been included. Not all fruit pie recipes need to have a double crust and be baked. The best berry fruit pies, have a single crust, you place fresh fruit in the cooled and baked crust, and you cook other berries down, with sugar, and either cornstarch or flour, and then pour over the fresh berries and let cool. These pies are not only easier to make, but taste more like the fresh fruit. You can also decorate the top with even more fresh fruit. The author did not include any recipes for one crust berry pies. The cherry pie recipe is not correct. The picture shows the finished pie as being very red. This means the pie would have been made with sour cherries or Montmorency cherries(which is almost always usually used in cherry pies). In the recipe she says to use Bing or Lambert, which are sweet cherries and very dark, almost black. Being a Michigander, picking cherries all my life, and making cherry pies, a cherry pie made out of all sweet cherries is not good, as it is too sweet and needs the sour cherries as balance and for flavor. The recipe and picture are very misleading. The author does give you variations to some of the recipes, however for the cherry pie she should have mentioned that frozen, pitted cherries could have been used, because buying good, ripe fresh cherries is almost impossible unless you live in a cherry growing state, and buying fresh sour cherries is impossible. I was given a copy of this book for an honest review
mmm... pie.. this is a collection of classic pie recipes. For me, a great pie starts with a great crust. Learn to make pie crust. its not that hard! pie crust from a package is nasty. Why.. why would you make a beautiful, delicious pie, and then use a crappy crust as the foundation?let me say it again. PIE CRUST IS NOT HARD. make a few to get the hang of it. you don't even have to fill them, just bake them with some cinnamon and sugar - the family will love it.
Oh my. So many delicious pies.Many are what you've been surrounded by your whole life. But it's well written and well organized to help any baker regardless of skill level create a delicious homemade pie.
