I like things in crusts. There’s something comforting about a serving of something hot in a crust. When I learned of a new cookbook called Savory Pies, I was very excited to receive the opportunity to check it out.

I received a copy of Savory Pies.

Chapters include:

  • Crusts
  • Appetizers
  • Main Course Pies – Meats and Seafood
  • Main Course Pies – Vegetarian
  • Hand Pies 15 Recipes

The recipes in this cookbook are all very easy to understand. Many of the recipes include wine pairing tips, alternate serving tips, and tips on ingredients. Cooking and prep time are not included. While there are a good number of photos in this book, there is not a photo for each recipe. That being said, the color photos that are included are wonderful, giving the illusion that the flaky pie crust is almost within your reach. There are a number of recipes in this cookbook that I’m looking forward to trying including Cream Cheese Crusts, Italian Easter Pie, Irish breakfast Pie, Fresh Tomato Pie with Corn Cracker Crust, leftover Pot Roast Hand Pies with Cheddar, and Rice and Egg Pirozhki with Green Onion and Dill. This cookbook would be perfect for anyone that likes pies and experimenting with pie crusts.
