This Week's Foodie Freebie: Pie Set


Happy Tuesday! I'm a day late for our Foodie Freebie this week so my apologies. I haven't been feeling well and it's been challenging to post these days. I hope you can bare with me and hopefully I'll be back to my normal self soon. So let's just jump in and find out what I'm giving away this week!

With the holidays fast approaching, a dessert I look forward to enjoying is pie. It seems pie is a popular treat this time of year. I'd love to help a reader have some memorable pie this year with this week's giveaway - a beautiful 9 inch pie plate and a great pie cookbook filled with 300 tried and true pie recipes!


Red glazed exterior and cream interior
Oven to table design
Microwave, freezer, oven and dishwasher safe.

No, that number's not a typo: here are 300 recipes for sweet pies, with fillings ranging from fruits to nuts, ice cream to custard. Haedrich, a cooking teacher and cookbook author (Apple Pie Perfect, etc.), shares an astonishing quantity of recipes, advice, pie history and musings on issues such as the butter vs. lard debate and his passion for sour cherries. His zeal and solid expertise make this book a worthy addition to the baker's bookshelf. There are 57 pages of information on pie crusts alone, but Haedrich's tone is clear and encouraging, as he addresses pie pans, rolling pins, pastry edges and more. The recipes range from All-Rhubarb Pie to more exotic offerings such as Watermelon Rind Pie and Carrot Custard Pie (Haedrich also includes 25 recipes for apple pie). Pie snobs, take note: each crust recipe gives instructions for making the pastry by hand, with an electric mixer or in a food processor. Similarly, Haedrich assures readers it's all right to use frozen fruit. Intrepid pie makers will be pleased with the recommendations throughout for other cookbooks and magazines, and the list of resources includes useful information on baker's catalogues, fruit farms and nut growers.
