French chefs are the masters of tortes and other pastries, and Italians make the world's best ice creams, but no one surpasses American cooks when it comes to making pies. Whether the flaky crust is filled with sweet summer berries, tart apples, chocolate custard, or coconut cream, almost everyone will choose a well-made pie over any other dessert.?
?James McNair now presents his easy, step-by-step procedures for making the perfect crust, along with thirty-five recipes for tantalizing pie fillings. Among the delicious pies are Bourbon Pecan, Coffee Crunch, Classic Lemon Meringue, Papaya Paradise, Apple Orchard, and Summer Peach, each beautifully photographed by Patricia Brabant.?
