Feature Fridays: Handheld Pies

Pies evoke a home comfort and warm feeling when you eat them and always make you feel better. While in Sam's Club last week I stumbles upon this great baking find. It's a book "Handheld Pies: Dozens of Pint Sweets & Savories" by Sarah Billingsley and Rachel Wharton that is all about handmade pies and the authors tell the reader everything that they need to know to be a successful pie maker. It doesn't hurt that these baking creations are so cute and that they taste good too. Pies were always a thing that me and my Grandma had in common. I was always a fan of her peach cobbler and a few months before she passed away in December 2011 she taught me how to make the peach cobbler that I loved so much.

This book has every kind of pie that you would want in it from free-form pies to jar pies. The recipes in this book can also be made into whole pies. There is also a part of the book that goes into detail about all of the ingredients that you will need and the different techniques to use to bake the perfect pie.

My favorite pie in the book is the pecan pie. This pie is packed with flavor and fresh pecans. The crust is flaky and buttery at the same time. There is also ingredients for each pie on the side of each recipe and there is an insert explaining how each pie means something to the authors.

These are my favorite pictures in the book. This is a picture of the lemon merinque jar pie and these sweet potatoe pies are so cute with the heart cut outs.

What are some of your favorite pies to make? Comment below and I can be reached at
