That’s right, I wrote another eCookbook. This one is all about my favorite thing in the world: PIE.

From the back cover:

“If you think you don’t like pie crust then you haven’t read this book! In this eCookbook, Dorothy Kern of delves into the world of pie crust. Her pie crust experiment starts by disproving the myths that pie crust doesn’t taste good or is hard to make. Read along with her as she discusses using butter versus shortening, how to make a crust by hand or with a food processor, and how to successfully make a lattice topped pie. Once she makes you fall in love with pie crust, she gives you 19 recipes for her favorite pies and pie crust creations, including her Aunt Tootsie’s Lemon Meringue Pie, a Classic Chess Pie, an eggless French Silk Chocolate Pie, and even Pie Cookies your kids can make. This book will help you discover how much you really do love pie crust and the pies that come with it.”

That’s right – not only is this book FULL of pie recipes, but it tells you how to make the PERFECT pie crust. Everything is spelled out for you: what ingredients to use, which tools you need, and step-by-step photos to make the entire process EASY.

There are 19 recipes using the perfect pie crust. 10 of them are BRAND NEW recipes never before published on the blog, pies like this Classic Chess Pie, a must for every holiday table.

And that’s not all…did you know that pie crust isn’t just for pies? You can make them into hand pies, mini pies, pie cookies and even…Pie Crust Bark!
