Synopsis

Queen of retro Linda Everett takes us back to a time when all meals were made from scratch and mealtimes were a family affair. From the colonial New England coast to the Wild West, RETRO PIES takes readers on a sojourn for the ultimate in comfort food. Classics such as Miz Lizzie’s Chess Pie, Beacon Hill Apple Pie, Martha’s Cherry Pie, and Red Brick Cafe’s Banana Cream Pie are sure to become favorites all over again. From fruit pies to custard and cream fillings, from the hearty main course meat pies to a pie-dough clinic, RETRO PIES is the definitive guide to pies in America.

The book is separated into Main Dish Pies, Fruit Pies and Custard Pies, and includes an alphabetized list of each section (though it would have been helpful to index pies by ingredient rather than by ambiguous recipe titles like Peninsula Surprise Pie).
