February 8, 2013 by Edacious - Food Talk for Gluttons

A glorious collection of pie recipes back when pie was king! Have you heard of Grape Pie? Me neither, but after reading the recipe, I’m dying to try it. Recipes range from classic Lemon Meringue to the strange Mile High Fig Pie to the decadent Fudge Pie Alamode (sic). The illustrations, including one of Adam & Eve above the “Deep Dish Apple Pie” are a scream all by themselves.

Pie crust challenged? Included is an illustrated guide for mixing and rolling out the perfect crust, including a gorgeous latticework crust that will put Martha Stewart to shame.

Sections include: Timely Tips for Perfect Pies, Pastry & Crusts, Fruit & Deep Dish Pies, Cream Pies, Chiffon Pies, Custard, Cheese & Nut Pies, Pies to Freeze, Tarts & Turnovers, De Luxe Pie Desserts, Glazes and Toppings. Lovely index of recipes in the back.

Branch out from your usual apple! Included here are historical recipes you just don’t see anymore (like Refrigerator Pineapple or Jubilee Cheese) and which are sure to be a hit at your next Mad Men potluck. Or win you a Blue Ribbon at your next pie contest! I’m keeping this one for myself ;) but luckily I have two copies, so one is up for sale for one lucky purchaser. Cheers!
