Book Description

May 23 2002 Non Series
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.

Product Description

From Amazon

In Icebox Pies, Lauren Chattman offers 100 recipes that will sweeten the stigma of the standard homemade no-bake pie. Thanks to Chattman, what used to seem only appropriate for the church bake sale has been refined with a chic twist. Though she offers the basic graham-cracker-crust recipe, she also includes an array of crusts that use lemon nut cookies, amaretti cookies, zwieback, and gingersnaps. Her featured fillings include the traditional lineup of no-bake pies (Chocolate Mousse Pie and Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Pie, among others), but the trendy and unusual recipes are what make this cookbook a lot of fun. Raspberry and Cocoa Mascarpone Cream Pie, Caramelized Pineapple and Cream Cheese Pie, and Cranberry and Butterscotch Chip Ice Cream Pie are just a few examples of delicious flavor combinations. The author also recommends toppings that range from Maple Walnut Sauce to Cranberry Dessert Sauce to Nougatine. (All filling recipes feature several suggestions for complementary crust choices and toppings.) With this book, Chattman provides a variety of no-bake pie options--guaranteed not to burn--that are interesting and elegant. --Teresa Simanton --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

Chattman's previous cookbooks Instant Gratification, Mom's Big Book of Baking, etc. have featured easy, no-fuss recipes, and her latest dessert book offers more of the same. Her refrigerator/freezer pies run the gamut from custard pies like classic banana cream to "fruit and cream combos" such as cherry and mascarpone pie to ice cream parlor treats like peanut butter cup pie. (There aren't quite as many pies as you might expect here, though, since 30 or so crust, sauce, and garnish recipes help make up the 100 the subtitle promises.) For most dessert collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Retro Pies Without an Oven Feb. 18 2004
The description of no-bake and no-fail pies is a bit misleading, since about half (if you exclude the ice cream pies) of pie fillings have to be cooked in a pot on the stove. However, it is true that these pies always work no matter how clumsy you are in the kitchen. You must leave these pies in the refrigerator or freezer for several hours to finish the recipes. Most of all, they taste good and are easy to do, since you never bake them.
I am glad somone wrote this book. The whole spectrum of old fashioned pies that do not get baked has virtually disappeared; to get a recipe, you will need to consult a cookbook that is at least 30 years old. This is ashame, as many of these pies are easy to do and taste fabulous, and are definitely worth doing in your home (but probably not as a restaurant dessert). There is a lot of history in this collection of pie recipes.
The first chapter has 15 recipes for pie crusts. Fortunately for us clumsy people, all of them are based on cookies or crackers that you crush in a food processor. No doughs or rolling pins here. You just press it into a pie pan and bake for a few minutes. My complaint here is that all of them are either very sweet (from using packaged cookies, which is very clever) or strongly flavored (from graham crackers). I could not find one that was relatively neutral in flavor.
There are roughly 70 or so pie recipes. They include mousses and custards (20), chocolate (17), fruit (10), ice cream (17), showstoppers (7). The crusts and finishing touches are listed as suggestions at the end of each pie filling recipe, so you get to choose what you want and can vary them if you want.

Lauren Chattman is going for maximum nostalgic gusto here--note the term "icebox" instead of "refrigerator" or "fridge." With her delightful "Icebox Pies," Chattman turns the spotlight on a sorely neglected dessert subject--and rightly so. The pies herein are scrumptious to look at, and I can attest to the fact that they are easy as, well, pie, to make!
Chattman has a loosey-goosey, conversational style in her text, but this is clearly a woman who knows her way around the kitchen. When she tells the reader what to do, she doesn't just say, "Do it"--she explains her thinking and experience behind the directive. This makes you feel that you're in capable hands, as indeed you are.
I really liked the additions of crust and sauce recipes. I was particularly intrigued by the inclusion of a crust recipe which uses crunched-up ice cream cones as the main ingredient--what a simple yet brilliant idea (wish I'd come up with it myself!). There are old favorites in here, as well as desserts with a new twist: Pumpkin Mousse Pie, Piña Colada Pie, White Chocolate Ganache and Banana Pie, Ricotta Cream Pie with Blood Oranges, Couscous and Apricot Pudding Pie, and so on. The more traditional pies include Rich Chocolate Mousse Pie, Chocolate-Mint Sorbet Pie, Coffee Heath Bar Ice Cream Pie, and even a yumilicious-looking S'Mores Pie.
This slim but well-researched volume is an excellent choice as a hostess gift for the folks with whom you're going on vacation--or as a special treat for your favorite dessert-maker. Everything in here looks do-able, and the results are very, very good in every way.
