Apple Pie: 100 Delicious and Decidedly Different Recipes for America’s Favorite Pie
You save $2.00 (13%)!
Apple Pie – by Ken Haedrich, founder and “Dean” of The Pie Academy – is a delectable showcase for the one pie everybody loves and few of us could imagine doing without.
Haedrich – a past winner of The Julia Child Cookbook award and one of America’s foremost baking authorities – first fell in love with apple pie as a boy, watching his mom and dad bake on Sunday afternoons.
Apple Pie pays tribute to the flaky, double-crust apple pies Ken grew up on. But there’s a lot more in store for you in the book’s 250 pages.
Haedrich is a big fan of crumb-topped pies, and the book is full of them.
For instance? Well, there’s Apple Pear Crumb Pie, with a surprise of fresh ginger. And an All-Granny Pecan Crumb Crust Pie with a sweet-tart filling and brown sugary topping that’s to-die-for. We seriously doubt you’ve ever tasted anything so swoon-inducing as his Vanilla Bean Apple Cherry Pie, with a whole vanilla bean baked right in the filling!
Haedrich’s standout apple pies feature everything from a cobbler-like topping, to a Cheddar cheese laced crust and a dark and spicy gingerbread topping. He has a knack for spinning down-home variations – like his Farm-Style Buttermilk Pie with Fried Apple Rings – that you never imagined, and can’t imagine doing without once you’ve tried them.
Sprinkled throughout this 100-recipe collection is detailed information on making the best pie pastry; several pages devoted to choosing the right apple varieties for your pies; and dozens of informative and entertaining sidebars to enhance your understanding of the pie making process.
Don’t let another pie making season pass you by without getting a copy of this cookbook classic that belongs on every home pie maker’s shelf.
