Basic Pies

I bought this as a gift, but of course I reviewed it before gifting. It was really basic and great for really teaching you the how to's of pie making (something that is truly a lost art)

$5.95 for a slim volume of recipes that use a great deal of sugar

This book is interestingly written in a chatty tone. I probably not follow the recipes because of the high sugar content but I will review it when I make savory pies.


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!
