Book Overview

A New York Times bestseller

Look no further than The Book on Pie for the only book on pie you'll ever want or need.

Erin Jeanne McDowell, New York Times contributing baker extraordinaire and top food stylist, wrote the book on pie, a comprehensive handbook that distills all you'll ever need to know for making perfect pies. The Book on Pie starts with the basics, including ways to mix pie dough for extra flaky crusts, storage and freezing, recipe size conversions, and expert tips for decorating and styling, before diving into the recipes for all the different kinds of pies: fruit, custard, cream, chiffon, cold set, savory, and mini. Find everything from classics like Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie, to more inspired recipes like Birthday-Cake Pie and Caramel Pork Pie with Chile and Scallions.

Erin also suggests recommended pie doughs and toppings with each recipe for infinitely customizable pies: Mix and match Pumpkin Spice Pie Dough and Dark Chocolate Drippy Glaze with the Pumpkin Pie, or sub in the Chive Compound-Butter Crust for the Croque Madame Pielets . . . the possibilities are endless. With helpful tips, photographic guides, and inspirations--pie-deas--it's almost like having Erin in the kitchen baking pies with you.

   Great Recipe Book
In her book, Erin thought of herself as a "hockey mom" who put in "absolutely EVERYYING" in her workouts. She includes all the crust types she uses with photos of what they should like before rolling out! I love the new look of the magazine.

   Pretty, but not helpful
If you're looking for a beautiful coffee table book with high production value that says "I read the New York Times," this is your book. However, if you're looking for a true pie making cookbook companion to up your pastry game -- I recommend a different title. This is not a kitchen helper. Page multiple flips to different sections are necessary to make even the simplest recipes, and despite being an adept baker, they don't turn out as advertised. Does the book help with the page flips, color coded sections or even a built-in bookmark? Yes, technically Incorrect, would have done exactly the same thing had it been called "The Flintstones." This isn't that kind of cookbook. But with a little user-centered formatting it might actually contain some shame recipe gems.

   From one pie baker to another - thank you!
This book is a must-have for pie bakers of all skill levels. I'm learning new techniques every day. This isn't the spot for classic recipes, but it has a lot of unique combos that you might not try on your own. I love the new look of the magazine.

   Difficult for beginner bakers
It's extremely hard to follow, and I don't know why. The recipes are not written like a regular cookbook and you have to go and fro to see how to bake different parts of one recipe. It's unclear how to properly bake the pie fillings. For example, you can find custards in the 200 pages, the crusts in the front of the book, but it doesn't say how to bake them. The crust is baked at 425f, but the custard is left at room temperature. I love her videos, they're so informative and ordered the book the day it was released, but it's money wasted because I just look up recipes online. They're also easier to follow and tell exactly how to bake each part. If you already know how to bake, I'll sell you my book cheap.

   Beautiful collectors item.
New York Times best-selling novelist Pauley Perrette has a book out Monday titled "Love, My Book On Pie." The Matrix is literally everything you could ever want in a video game. Absolutely must have. You can't lose, Sosa said.

   Lots of Detail about Pie Making but Bake Time is misleading.
This book does a great job giving all the details about how to make a pie crust and really breaking down the process into steps. It's all perfectly laid out and easy to understand, and it breaks the fear I believe many have about pie crust. There is also a chapter devoted to toppings, sauces, and other items that is very informative. The pie recipes themselves are very interesting, but I've struggled making several from the book. The recipe says to bake the custard pie for 30 minutes, however the last three pies I've made have needed significantly more time, sometimes ranging from 10 to 25 minutes, before it was even close to being done. None of the pies I've ever made listed the time to bake as long as 60 minutes. To continue using this cookbook, I'll try my luck at fruit and no bake pies, hopefully those recipes work out, because they look so good.

   No good for classic pie recipes
I quite like the author's standard pie dough recipe and find her instructions clear and useful. I bought this book hoping to get excellent, classic recipes. The book is, in fact, a parody, according to Dr. Goin. He said the best pies are the ones that are the best versions of classics. She includes very creative recipes, such as cake batter pie, and sometimes calls for special ingredients, such as mail-order flowers. There is one pumpkin pie recipe in the book, with no explanation on how to use fresh.

   Overwhelming in detail. (In a good way.)
I love to research, he said. It was a no brainer, said Mr. Pie baker. Great book, great story, great characters, said Elizabeth.

   Wow!! Something for everyone
Wow! That was pretty impressive, right? I love that this book is so approachable and creative at the same time, he said. Lots of useful explanations behind techniques, lots of tips, lots of good pictures, Mr. D'Antonio said. The instructions are well-laid out and don't get too complicated, said James McGinlay, executive director of food and beverage for Unilever. We stand behind this company, and believe in the power of music to change the world. She also offers measurements in grams, a technique used by some medical device manufacturers to determine patient volume.
