From the world-famous cookery expert, Martha Stewart, comes 150 delicious recipes for sweet and savoury pies and tarts
Martha Stewart's Pies and Tarts
The perfect sweet (or savoury) for any occasion
Filled with seasonal fruit, piled high with billowy meringue, or topped with buttery streusel, pies and tarts are comforting and foolproof. In Martha Stewart's New Pies and Tarts, the editors of Martha Stewart Living include 150 recipes: some are savoury, some are sweet; some are simple enough for a weeknight, while others are fancy enough for special events. Throughout, readers will find plenty of fillings and crusts, basics, and techniques for creating flavours and textures for every taste - from down-home classics that come together easily with fresh berries and stone fruits to modern tarts layered with chocolate ganache or finished with a wine glaze. There are also individual hand pies, savoury comforts like quiche and pot-pie, holiday-worthy desserts for nearly every occasion, and much more.
Chapters feature pies and tarts for everyone: CLASSIC (Lattice-Top Blueberry Pie, Pumpkin Pie), FREE-FORM (Apricot-Pistachio Tart, Apple Butter Hand Pies), SLEEK (Caramelized Lemon Tart, Chocolate Mousse Tart with Hazelnuts), DREAMY (Frozen Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie, Butterscotch Praline Cream Pie), RUSTIC (Cheddar-Crust Apple Pie, Blackberry Jam Tart), LAYERED (Rainbow Puff-Pastry Tarts, Chocolate Pear Tart), DAINTY (Roasted Fig Tartlets, Cranberry Meringue Mini Pies), ARTFUL (Peach-Raspberry Slab Pie, Pumpkin and Ricotta Crostata), HOLIDAY (Neapolitan Easter Pie, Gingerbread-Raspberry Snowflake Tart), and SAVOURY (Leek and Olive Tart, Summer Squash Lattice Tart).
