Who published it: Zondervan

Number of recipes: 100

Other highlights: This cookbook is a treasure for both the homecooks who could compete in pie competitions and those of us who feel a little nervous at the prospect of rolling out a crust. It starts with an approachable and comprehensive look at pie basic — blind baking, choice of pan, basic crust recipes, and so on — before diving into the recipes themselves.

Interspersed with the chapters are also stories of Sherry's life in her pie-loving Amish community and her transition from pie-fearful to pie-crazed baker. This cookbook is both a good read and a good resource to have on your shelf.
