Ok—not as great as I hoped. I have other ATK cook books and the Pie recipes in those books I think are better. I did use the new crust recipe they feature. Like usual, it works as expected. For apple pie, I combined two recipes, the Dutch Apple one and the standard to make a better apple pie. So, not a total loss.
This is just another wonderful addition to our building library of ATK Recipe Books. The Key Lime Pie recipe is delicious. Always love the recipes with their full descriptions and step by step of why and when. Very instructional and easy to follow.
I try the foolproof all butter pie dough And the deep dish apple pie the dough recipe was so complicated I got mad and tower the book at the wall. It not that easy like it says it is and it did not stay together I have another dough recipe that is so much better and easier to work with. The cross was to buttery for me I didn't like the taste of it did like the Apple filling.
What can I say? It's a GREAT pie cookbook. I've made the apple cranberry, blueberry Earl Grey, and classic apple pies so far and all were super good. My family and friends agreed! One said the crust was the best ever and I've been making pie crust from scratch for 50 years using other recipes.
I Just bought 2 of these beautiful books. One for myself and the other, I gave as a gift to a friend and she loved it! This book is chock-full of colorful photographs of beautiful pies and the recipes are awesome! I’m one of those people that not only loves to cook but love to read recipes and look at awesome pictures of good food. I can’t wait to start making these pies. I recommend this hardback pie book - it’s Perfect!
Like all books in this series from America's Test Kitchen, recipes offered have been thoroughly tested to make sure they come out well, perfectly. I have the companion books for cookies and cakes and love them so when I saw the pie version I snapped it right up. It does not disappoint. From the basics to fancy dress pies this book gives you everything you need to place the perfect pie on your dessert table
My money very well spent! Beautifully illustrated with many photos. Creamy and soft paper and a hardbound, and a dustcover too! Cooks Illustrated, Cooks Country et al, continue to produce wonderful kitchen tested recipes for home cooks and bakers. This is a WINNER!
