Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cranberry crumble pie

    • cespitler on November 29, 2018

      This was a huge hit at the Holiday Party where it was served alongside honey ice cream. It is nicely tart and has a great texture. The all-butter crust from the same book turned out great, too! This is a make-again recipe!

  • Chocolate coconut pie

    • lou_weez on January 01, 2019

      OMG!!! Where do I start? Even though the recipe doesn't suggest it, I made my pastry in the food processor, which made it super easy and quick. I'm not sure what the addition of apple cider vinegar did but I ended up with a crust that was sturdy enough to withstand my haphazard hacking, yet flaky and tender to the bite. The filling and ganache topping was beyond delicious and I didn't even bother serving it with cream or ice cream. This was pie heaven.

  • Apple cheddar rye hand pies

    • verorenee on October 07, 2018

      450f seems much too high for these little hand pies, or the suggested time frame is much too long. My oven runs hot so I put it down to 425 and they had completely burned by 25 minutes.

  • Jasmine crème fraîche scones

    • verorenee on November 14, 2018

      I subbed in greek yogurt for the creme fraiche with success. I also blitzed the jasmine tea leaves with the sugar as I was using loose leaf tea and giant leaves aren't fun to eat in pastries. Will reduce sugar next time, as it was quite a bit sweeter than the average scone.

  • Caper miso dressing

    • meggan on January 16, 2019

      I might cut back the garlic a little. I used two big cloves and they were a little much (and I love garlic).

  • Eggplant, summer squash, and lentil salad

    • lou_weez on February 05, 2019

      As I wanted an easy weeknight meal I used canned lentils and also threw in a tin of chickpeas to add bulk. The dressing is divine and this dish was greedily gobbled up by the whole family.

  • Two-way cauliflower and barley salad

    • meggan on January 14, 2019

      I do not like tahini so I used the caper miso vinaigrette from the same book. The recipe is good but that dressing might be a little garlicky for this recipe. My bad.

Publishers Text

A bursting-with-personality cookbook from Sister Pie, the boutique bakery that's making Detroit more delicious every day.

At Sister Pie, Lisa Ludwinski and her band of sister bakers are helping remake Detroit one slice at a time from a little corner pie shop in a former beauty salon on the city's west side. The granddaughter of two Detroit natives, Ludwinski spends her days singing, dancing, and serving up a brand of pie love that has charmed critics and drawn the curious from far and wide. No one leaves without a slice--those who don't have money in their pockets can simply cash in a prepaid slice from the "pie it forward" clothesline strung across the window. With 75 of her most-loved recipes for sweet and savory pies--such as Toasted Marshmallow-Butterscotch Pie and Sour Cherry-Bourbon Pie--and breakfast goodies, cookies, and bakeshop salads, the Sister Pie cookbook pays homage to Motor City ingenuity and all-American spirit. Illustrated throughout with 75 drool-worthy photos and Ludwinski's charming line illustrations, and infused with her plucky, punny style, bakers and bakery lovers won't be able to resist this book.
