The Perfect Pie: More Than 125 All-Time Favorite P&hellip by Susan G. Purdy
4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of good info, Aug. 22 2002
I had never made a pie before reading this book, but I was interested, so I picked up a copy. It has a lot of good recipes and advice for the price, and the sections in the beginning about the different ingredients and their roles in pie fillings and crusts were very helpful. I don't like just following the steps in a recipe. I really like to know what's going on in the bowl/pan, and her details really helped me get a feel for how the process of making a pie should work.
