Forget just sweet pies and desserts although of course those are a joy...you can go totally gourmet and serve gourmet side dishes with this cookbook or mini pies for full meals. In fact, any savory pie is a delight with simply tomato soup.
The beauty of this book is that it's made for those who have an electric pie maker rather than forming pies by hand. This matters because it gives you the perfect amount of filling for the pie maker so that the crust touches the top and it doesn't include recipes you can't use in the pie maker such as pies with graham cracker crusts that I found in other pie books, or other things formed by hand. On the other hand, if you don't have a personal pie maker, you could certainly make them all by hand!
some recipe examples:
summer peach pies
mixed berry pies
maple apple butter
dulce de leche cheesecake
...and lots more!
savory pies ( GREAT GOURMET SIDE DISHES AT PARTIES!!) include recipes such as:
ham and cheese mini quiches
scrambled egg and bacon pies
green chile and cheese pies
gruyere and onion
salmon and dill
and much more!
You get the idea...and it will give you many more new ideas!
Since my 96 year old mother moved in with us 4 years ago, I am always looking for new ideas for breakfast/lunch for her and for quick meals for us when I am short of time. For my mother, my husband has the morning shift and I have the night shift. My husband really isn't into cooking, so I try to make meals ahead that will be easy for him to warm up for her. Although I usually make more than we can eat for dinners so that we have a complete meal to freeze for my mother, the mini pies are a perfect and easy way to provide my mother with a balanced meal that is easy for my husband to warm up for her. I haven't made any of the sweet pies, but generally double the recipe for the savory pies to make 12 pies. After they cool, I wrap the individually with plastic wrap and freeze them. Sometimes we will all have a mini pie with a bowl of homemade soup for a quick dinner, but very often, most of the pies are alternated with other meals for my mother's early meal.
The great thing about homemade mini pies is that you know what goes into them. You can use cream soups as a base for the gravy or you can use homemade broth that has been thickened to make a gravy. You can use any meat or veggies in them and make them as healthy and balanced as you want. The mini pies freeze really well and can be made with leftovers if you choose.
Although I seldom follow recipes exactly, this book has given me a lot of great ides to get started. I have other mini pie cookbooks, but I have found this one to be the most useful because it focuses on pies made in a mini pie maker. The other books are helpful for ingredient ideas, but you often have to convert quantities to what would be suitable for mini pies made in an electric mini pie maker. If the recipe is for a 9" pie, it can be difficult to figure out how much of each ingredient you would need to make the quantity of mini pies you want to make. FYI, I have found that one package containing 2 crusts will make 12 pies if you roll out the leftover dough to make more crusts. I have also learned from experience that the crusts are less likely to stick to the tool that pushes crusts into the maker if you cut the crusts and then put them into the frig on wax paper until you are ready to use them. When the crust dough gets warm, it is more likely to stick to the pushing tool as you push the lower crust into the pie maker.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone that wants to get started at making their own mini pies. With the ideas and recipes in this book, you are limited only by your imagination.
