Don’t let the approach of Thanksgiving throw you into a pie panic. The Elsen sisters of Hecla, South Dakota, put Brooklyn on the pie-baking map when they began a pie business in their apartment that quickly expanded into a shop. Now they’re here to help you! Their first cookbook offers helpful and well-photographed instruction on crust-making, much of it innovative and eye-pleasing, for anyone who’s ever been intimidated by the process. There is also a lovely assortment of seasonally arranged recipes (you are using the freshest fruit for your pie, aren’t you?) which include a full range of classics but also fun innovations such as wild ginger strawberry pie, white nectarine and red currant pie, and a black bottom oatmeal pie.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
