There is no better way to impress a houseguest than with a dessert by Maida Heatter. While this is not a cookbook for beginners (some of the recipes run three pages in length), those who venture forth to try Heatter's masterpieces will not be disappointed. The Queen of Desserts, as she has been called for decades, has included handy cooking basics, from the best way to wash blueberries to how to tell if you really have a pint of strawberries (it will actually measure a quart and will weigh a pound). Her recipes are the stuff of heaven: Savannah Banana Pie with Macaroon Crust, Coffee and Cognac Cream Pie, Pear and Almond Tart, and Washington State Cherry Cobbler. Heatter's recipes, while on the longish side, are simple to follow. You'll pick up tips for making pies perfect and learn the difference between a buckle, a crisp, a cobbler, a crumble, and a betty. The book goes beyond tarts and pies to include other desserts such as bread puddings, flans, soufflés, ices, sorbets, and mousses.
Includes recipes for pies, turnovers, tarts, shortcakes, cobblers, mousses, puddings, and custards.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

However, once I started reading the book, only about 1/2 of the recipes are for pies and tarts. Out of 288 pages, the first 126 or so have recipes for pies and tarts. The rest of the book is simply fruit recipes: crumbles + buckles + cobblers, baked fruits, like broiled grapefruit, bread puddings, etc.
Maida Heatter's flair for writing good recipes with neat tricks and tips are here. However, the book is not dedicated to Pies and Tarts and the book doesn't really contain any new or intriguing pies / tarts / desserts. Also, there are no photos of any of the recipes and many recipes were obtained from chefs the author visited during her travels.
If you want nothing but pies, I'd recommend Ken Haedrich's book entitled, what else, Pies. Many interesting recipes for pies and twists / variations of the classics. A Year of Pies is also a great book - many interesting and yummy twists to some classic recipes. There are many other books on Amazon for pie-making, but this book finishes next to last among the competition.
