"The undisputed Queen of Desserts. Following one of her recipes is an adventure. They are chatty and comforting, telling you what to do every step of the way."--Ladies Home Journal

Her first-ever collection to focus on pies and fruit, Maida Heatter's Pies ∧ Tarts presents scores of delightful recipes to thrill the palate--the homey baked apple or wild blueberry pie, classic Key Lime Pie, an incredible Cassis Raspberries with Creme Fraiche. Of course Maida's love of chocolate and all things sweet is brought to pies, too, so along with your fruit there's Chocolate Mousse Pie, Frozen Peanut Butter Pie, and Old-Fashioned Butterscotch Pie, too. And there are pies and fabulous fruit concoctions to back and serve at any time of year, regardless of season, and for any occasion--chiffon pies, ice-cream pies, tiny tartlets, turnovers, cobblers and crumbles, mousses, flans, and puddings. Plus the flawless Maida Heatter touch is brought to every aspect of baking, as she patiently teaches critical details such as how to make the perfect pie crust and how to make souffles that never fall.

Review:

There is no better way to impress a houseguest than with a dessert by Maida Heatter. While this is not a cookbook for beginners (some of the recipes run three pages in length), those who venture forth to try Heatter's masterpieces will not be disappointed. The Queen of Desserts, as she has been called for decades, has included handy cooking basics, from the best way to wash blueberries to how to tell if you really have a pint of strawberries (it will actually measure a quart and will weigh a pound). Her recipes are the stuff of heaven: Savannah Banana Pie with Macaroon Crust, Coffee and Cognac Cream Pie, Pear and Almond Tart, and Washington State Cherry Cobbler. Heatter's recipes, while on the longish side, are simple to follow. You'll pick up tips for making pies perfect and learn the difference between a buckle, a crisp, a cobbler, a crumble, and a betty. The book goes beyond tarts and pies to include other desserts such as bread puddings, flans, soufflés, ices, sorbets, and mousses.
