The Pie & Pastry Bible
Thanks to The Cake Bible, I’m known for cakes, but my greatest love to eat is a fruit laden or filled pastry, such as cherry pie, lemon tart, sticky buns filled with rum soaked raisins………and this 692 page book with over 250 recipes, which took me over 5 years to write, has all of them. It also includes a wide variety of pie crusts from my favorite tender, flaky, and flavorful cream cheese and butter crust to savory crusts made with goose fat or beef suet.The excellent illustrations were doing by my high school classmate Laura Maestro.

The Best All American Apple Pie
I’ve had a lot of fun working my way through many of the pies and tarts in Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Pie and Pastry Bible, with much sucess. I began this past summer, doing pecan, chocolate pecan, banana cream, key lime, and lemon merringue pies as well as pear almond, apple walnut tarts and Linzertorte, using various doughs such as cookie dough, cream cheese dough, hazlenut for the Linzer, all butter…Last week I made her Great American Apple Pie. I didn’t have any baking apples so I used Granny Smiths. Her recipe calls for 1/4 cup each white and brown sugar. It came out really tart . Nice thick glaze but not enough of it.Today, I made it again, doubling the sugars, leaving everything else constant with the recipe. I sliced the apples thicker The apples had a nicer bite to them, but there was a lot more sauce, and it was runny. I guess that extra cup of sugar means that I should bump up the cornstarch next time from 1 TBSP + 1 tsp to … Any comments or recommendations? I’ve also done a few items from Maida Heater’s various books and plan to start doing some cakes this winter.
