Four and Twenty Blackbirds Cookbook Review - Annotated Cookbook ReviewsWhat an incredibly delicious apple pie! The caramel sauce alone is worth the effort, even though it took ages for the sauce to change to its desired color. The recipe for the sauce yields much more than needed for the pie, so now I have two mason jars full of delicious caramel sauce as well. The pie turned out great, no soggy bottom, once I found out that the 2 tablespoons of AP flour were probably meant to be put on the unbaked crust before adding the filling. No mention of where to use the additional flour in the recipe but consulting the how-to manual at the beginning of the book yielded the probable explanation. Husband declared it best pie ever, and I agree! The only dessert for Thanksgiving and it was a winner!

Astrid on January 25, Truth be told I have always been scared of baking pie. Although some of the recipes are not for the absolute beginner, and some of the ingredients are not readily available in everyone's pantry I am recommending this book for all levels of pie bakers because the instructions are well written and illustrated. Language: English. I have been wanting to make sour cherry pie for ages, so when I finally spotted some at the farmers' market yesterday I dove right in and picked up my favorite pie book.
But I am terrified of making crust. Especially if you have a partner in crime and a couple of beers or a bottle of wine? Grand Central Publishing. Back to top.
