The Wonderful World of Pies

We love pies. We love fruit pies, nut pies, cream pies, pies with pastry crusts, and pies with
crumb crusts. There is a pie for every taste, for every mood, for every occasion. Early American
pioneers made a pie for every meal. When they ran out of fruit, they used pumpkin, corn, or nuts.
When they ran out of these, they used whatever else was on hand\u2014such ingredients as
applesauce, molasses, vinegar, and crackers. Today, we have an amazing array of pies to
choose from . . . and the opportunity to experiment beyond the normal.

Pies don\u2019t need to be hard. And if you\u2019ve never made a pie, there\u2019s no reason to hesitate. Pies
tend to be forgiving and even a less than perfect pie, is still very good. If you don\u2019t feel that you\u2019re
ready to tackle a pastry crust, start with a crumb crust or one of the near-pies, Pumpkin Pie
Squares, a mock pie, or a crumble. But, we\u2019ll help you build a great pastry crust and troubleshoot
those that don\u2019t come out perfect.

This handbook is divided into two sections: pie construction and recipes. We\u2019ll start out by talking about the different types of pies and the requirements for success for each. Then we\u2019ll tackle the crusts, since that is where most folks hesitate. We\u2019ll then help you customize your pie to make it uniquely yours and fit your tastes. Finally, we\u2019ll give you a troubleshooting guide in question and answer form for easy reference.

The recipe section is not meant to be comprehensive\u2014you can get hundreds of recipes from cookbooks or on line. Rather, it\u2019s meant to be just a sampler of pies that we\u2019ve enjoyed with a broad enough range to incite your desire to explore. We\u2019ve included some near pies, pies that don\u2019t require the traditional crusts and therefore quicker and\u2014to most folks\u2014easier to make.

Good luck, enjoy your pies, and happy baking.
