Do you consider pies complicated, oven-baked affairs? Before she discovered icebox pies, Lauren Chattman did too. Icebox pies are different: they're easy. You won't spend precious time rolling out pastry dough-the crusts are made from cookie crumbs and quickly crisped in the oven; the fillings are uncooked or prepared on the stovetop; the pies set in the refrigerator or freezer for a few hours before being served. And that's all there is to it. Icebox Pies is Chattman's interpretation of this simple dessert, which can be at turns classic or exotic. It begins with a chapter on crusts and ends with a chapter on toppings, and in between are all the delectable pies themselves: mousse, pudding, and custard pies; chocolate-based pies; fruit-and-cream pies; ice cream and sorbet pies; and more. They are perfect for summertime entertaining and will satisfy you, whether you are experienced or just beginning. Choice confronts you as the only difficulty, with such options as Black Bottom Butterscotch Pie, Rocky Road Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, Caramelized Pineapple and Cream Cheese Pie, Banana Split Ice Cream Pie, and Fresh Raspberry and Blueberry Pie. Icebox Pies will present you with a whole new way to make dessert without a whole lot of work.
