Last Minute Hot Holiday Deals from The Pie Academy…WITH FREE SHIPPING!

Okay, so you’ve got someone on your holiday gift list who loves to bake. (Maybe even you; that’s cool.)

But you haven’t picked out the perfect gift, and time is getting short. What’s a shopper to do?

Simple: choose one of these special deals from The Pie Academy and you’ll have it by the 21st. Just one hitch: I need to hear from you no later than noon this Sunday evening, Dec 16. Let me tell you about the hot deals we’ve put together.

The No-More-Tears Pie Pastry Course

Deal #1 – The Stocking Stuffer Solution (photo above)

Now here’s a deal where you can spread the love around to several favorite bakers. You get two autographed copies of my latest bestselling book, The Old Farmer’s Almanac Baking Book, packed with 118 of my favorite baking recipes from my three decades as a food writer and baker. You’ll also receive 2 mini Le Creuset stoneware pie plates (1 pair) in either red or white; tell me what color you like. I love these little 4 1/2″ diameter dishes for individual sweet pies and pot pies. Use ’em for pickles, dips, sides, and nuts and snacks, too. Finally, you get a cute little pie bird – which goes in the middle of your fruit pies and acts as a vent – in either white or black. $44 + FREE SHIPPING!

Deal #2 – The Baker’s Bonanza

Your favorite baker will be over the moon when they open this beautiful bundle of baking joy. You get one 10″ cobalt blue Le Creuset stoneware pie plate. This ruggedly elegant beauty is something they – or you – will pass along to future generations. (It’s big, too. I’ll include my special pastry recipe that fits perfectly in the pan, along with guidelines for scaling up your pie recipes.) Also, you’ll get 1 autographed copy each of my bestselling 600+ page book – PIE: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie – and my recently released The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking Book. $68 + FREE SHIPPING

Deal #3 – The Almost Half-Complete Ken Haedrich Cookbook Collection

Here’s the ultimate gift for your favorite cookbook collector…or collectors. It’s not everything I’ve written, but it is a generous serving of some of my best recipes and writings. Included in the mix is a hardcover copy of the difficult-to-find and out-of-print, 258-page Country Breakfasts. Written during my nearly 20 years in New Hampshire, this book has enough great breakfast recipes to last you a lifetime. Also included is a softcover copy of my 258-page Soup Makes the Meal, featuring 150 recipes organized into 50 seasonal soup, salad and bread menus – a great gift for anyone who likes to put together creative soup meals. There’s also Apple Pie, with 100 of my best apple pie recipes…PIE, with 300 recipes and 600+ pages, recently voted one of the top baking books of the last 25 years by Cooking Light magazine…and a copy of my new The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking Book. I’ll autograph each book the way you want; just tell me how. $68 + FREE SHIPPING.
