Notes about Recipes in this book

  • All-butter dough

    • Astrid5555 on November 08, 2020

      If you read all instructions in this chapter before making this dough a fool-proof recipe.

  • Classic apple pie

    • Astrid5555 on November 08, 2020

      Best apple pie I have made in a long time. KMD‘s instructions are spot on, no soggy bottom, perfect crust. Will be my new go-to recipe.

  • Green tomato and apple pie

    • Astrid5555 on November 08, 2020

      Having never baked with green tomatoes before, I knew I was going to try a green tomato pie with the last tomatoes from my garden once I saw this recipe. Pulling off the skins from the tomatoes was more difficult than expected and after discarding the firm center cores I had to improvise and add some apples as well to have enough filling. Great combination, none of my pie eaters were able to guess the filling ingredients.

  • Apple blackberry pie with an orange twist

    • Lepa on November 10, 2020

      This is a lovely flavor combination. I used Cointreau because I didn't have Cassis and it provided a lovely floral note.

  • Mango lime pie

    • Kinhawaii on April 18, 2022

      Nice key lime type pie- mango was subtle. Used my standard crust, which is thinner, & lime zest instead of coconut in the whipped cream- because someone objected to coconut. Would make again but maybe add some mango slices or sauce on top to up the mango flavoring.

  • Master recipe: chocolate mousse chiffon pie

    • sanfrannative on May 08, 2022

      Have made this several times for family gatherings and it's always a huge hit. I didn't have any creme de cacao last time I made it and I only had Bailey's so used it instead--it was delicious!

  • Kumquat cream pie

    • j.va on April 19, 2021

      A solid pie that came together as directed. It is very light and airy, and has a taste reminiscent of eating an orange creamsicle. The hardest part of this recipe is peeling the kumquats...so put on some good music and power through. Be sure you like the taste of orange blossom water before you add it, because there's no going back...and I personally found its presence in the filling and the whipped cream topping overpowering. I would omit the orange blossom water from the whipped cream next time, but keep it in the filling. The candied kumquat peel and pistachio topping really make each bite interesting. Additionally, the leftover kumquat syrup is delicious in cocktails. Would make again, with slight modifications.

Is Pie Camp sold out again? Here are the techniques and inspiration you need to achieve “pie confidence” at home.

Readers fell in love with Kate McDermott and her story-filled cookbook, Art of the Pie. In this new book, McDermott takes her teaching to the next level. Here she’s focused more on technique: how to decorate pastry with braided crusts, troubleshoot a custard that won’t set, create beautiful layered pies, and perfectly thicken your fruit filling. Once you have the foundations down, it’s time to mix and match crusts, fillings, and toppings. The dozen “master” recipes--from flaky to tender to cookie crumb crusts, and fruit to cream to chiffon pies--will become part of every pie maker’s repertoire and will open the door for bakers everywhere to conjure pies with self-assurance. There are gluten-free crust options for every pie, including Apple Ginger Maple Bourbon, Raspberry Peach Sunset Chiffon, Double Chocolate Banana... plus recipes for easy homemade ice cream and Pie-Lets for one or two. Gorgeous color photography by Andrew Scrivani brings Pie Camp to vivid life. Over 100 color photographs.
