"Pies and Tarts with Heart"
Expert Pie-Building Techniques for 60+ Sweet and Savory Vegan Pies
by Dynise Balcavage
"Pies and Tarts with Heart" is all about making vegan pies. From making your filling to decorating your masterpiece the easy to follow directions will help guide you in making over 60 different types of pies and tarts.
Mommy in PA: I just want to start by saying that I never realized how detailed making a pie could be. I was impressed at the number of products out there to help make pies that I had never even heard of before (oven thermometers, pie weights, and pie birds to mention a few).
You can tell the author has a lot of experience making these recipes. Her recipes are easy to follow and the photographs are just beautiful and don't have that staged look that you get with a lot of cookbooks. I want to make every single one of these as they all look delicious.
They have recipes for everyone. From sweet to savory, basics (like apple) to the more indulgent (like Fluffernutter pie)...I really want to make that one : )
I think people will find this book very useful especially the chart about pie crusts. Oh, and don't worry if you're not vegan, this book is for everybody. It even has recipes that are kid-friendly, gluten-free, and recipes for those with food allergies.
"Pies and Tarts with Hearts" is going to be my go to book for pie making from now on : )
