Everyone who likes desserts has a favorite kind. Some folks like cake. Some favor ice cream. Some prefer pudding. Me? I like pie: chess pie, rhubarb pie, peach-blueberry pie, sweet potato pie, heck, just about kind of pie, really. So an entire cookbook devoted just to pie (and its tasty cousins tarts and cobblers) was a must have for me.

The author frames the recipes with family stories and recollections, often about the women who created the individual recipes. The stories are interesting enough, I guess, but truthfully whether you are interested in them is totally irrelevant.

If you like pie, especially old-time country cooking covered-dish supper kind of pie, you need this book. Really. Fruit pies, custard pies, merengue pies, and even my new must-try category, cereal pies.

Yum! ( )
