A few years ago, my mother gave me this cookbook that's proven to be indispensable. Called Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie, this collection of 300 recipes and step-by-step techniques is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to make pie.

Pie is two inches thick, full of beautiful photographs, and covers various types of crusts, fruit pies, berry pies, nut pies, custard pies, turnovers, ice cream pies, and more. There are traditional recipes as well as non-traditional ones with names like Fresh Plum & Port Pie, Wild Blueberry-Maple Pie, Crock Pot Fall Fruit Pie, and Rose Water Custard Pie with Sugared Peaches. The author, Ken Haedrich, also covers various techniques for making pastry in wonderful, easy-to-understand detail.

Whether you've never made a pie before or you're an old hand at piemaking, this cookbook is for all experience levels. Anyone can benefit from having this on their shelf.

Buy the book on Amazon for $18.45 (or lower, if you buy used!)
