Notes about this book

  • Breadcrumbs on October 06, 2014

    Not sure how I missed mentioning this in my Jul 2012 note but the "Perfect Apple Pie" recipe on p. 272 of this book is indeed perfect every time. Another recipe I've made countless times. While I've varied the apple varieties depending on availability, Spy's are optimal. Photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/990783#9221383

  • Breadcrumbs on July 02, 2012

    This is a terrific baking book and as my first comprehensive book on the subject, it's been my go-to baking book for years now. I found the recipes to be well-written and they have produced fool-proof results. The Scottish (Oat) Scones on p. 354 are wonderfully light, perfectly moist and buttery. I make them in the food processor to speed things up. The Two-Crust Pie pastry on p. 268 is terrific. Over time I've evolved it to our tastes so I add 2tsp of vinegar to the water and tsp of sugar to the dry ingredients to produce the perfect pie crust. I've probably made this at least 5o times! Fingers crossed that this is indexed soon!

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Old-fashioned pumpkin pie

    • dbuhler on September 22, 2022

      This has been my go-to pumpkin pie recipe (using the included pumpkin pie spice mixture recipe) for 20 years. There is nothing groundbreaking with this recipe, but it is so delicious. It is best after it has been refrigerated overnight.

  • Pumpkin pie spice 1

    • dbuhler on September 22, 2022

      This is my go-to pumpkin pie spice combination. I keep a sticker with the recipe printed on it stuck to the side of the airtight container the I use to store the mixture so I don’t have to open the book every time I need to mix more. It is important to note that using fresh warming spices is a must as expired spices, especially warming spices, can taste off almost tin-like. This, paired with the Old-fashioned pumpkin pie, has been my go-to pumpkin pie recipe for 20 years.
