I have been anxiously awaiting release of this cookbook for several months. I am a frequent customer of the Cutest Little Pie Shop (Linda's endearing term for her shop) and even participated in one of her baking classes last winter. This cookbook does not disappoint! The pie crust recipe is simple - just follow her instructions step by step and you will roll out a beautiful, flaky crust. So far I've made the Caramel Apple Pie as Cortland Apples (a variety recommended by Linda) is readily available right now in Michigan, and Tom's Cheery Cherry Cherry Berry Pie. Everyone raved about the pies! They recipes are simple and use readily available ingredients, as there is nothing worse than being excited to bake a pie only to discover that an obscure ingredient is required that is nearly impossible to find locally. This is not a problem at all with this nostalgic feeling cookbook. I love that Linda reveals to the reader the unique story behind each each pie, not only in written word but through gorgeous photography, as well. Lastly, I adore the vintage vibe of this cookbook. It really captures the true essence of traditional baking that has been taught throughout generations - it contains recipes handed down by the author's family, along with newly created recipes, as well. If you love pie and appreciate the techniques that our grandmothers taught us, then you will adore everything about this cookbook. To quote the author" "Eat Pie and love life..." - truer words have never been said. Buy this book!
