Description

"One of my fondest childhood memories is of my aunt's pies cooling on the window sill, while father sat with his deputy ...wait ...that might be Opie Taylor. If you love pie, and I can only assume you do, Bubby's pies are the best. I'm eating one right now." --Jon Stewart "I almost ate the book! If my bubby made pies like this, I'd weigh 400 pounds." --Billy Crystal "If a pie cooling in a country breeze is your idea of baking nirvana, with its golden crust and juicy filling beckoning, then the delightful recipes in Bubby's Homemade Pies will guide you toward that goal and, perhaps, initiate the appearance of 'Pie of the Month' at your house. Now wouldn't that be a sweet and welcoming sight?" --Lisa Yockelson, award-winning author of Baking by Flavor and ChocolateChocolate "My dad always says, 'Save your fork, there's pie!'" --Kate Douglass, owner of The Spotted Pigshow more
