New Pies & Tarts
150 Recipes for Old-Fashioned
and Modern Favorites
Pies are predicted to be one of the hottest food trends of 2011, and for good reason: they’re simple, classic, and the ultimate comfort food. The newest addition to Martha Stewart’s wildly popular paperback library, Martha Stewart’s New Pies & Tarts (Clarkson Potter/Publishers; on sale March 22, 2011; $24.99) boasts 150 recipes, each with a beautiful accompanying photo. In this one-stop resource, readers will find everything from down-home classics, such as Chocolate Cream Pie and Apple Pie, to savory comforts, such as Mini Chicken Potpies, to cream-filled tarts that come together easily with seasonal fruits.
Here, too, are simple instructions for decorative crusts and finishing techniques (latticework, cutouts, classic edgings), a complete Basics section that includes how to make traditional doughs (extra flaky all-butter crusts, press-in cookie crusts, delicate puff pastry, and more), and plenty of make-ahead tips and shortcuts for a perfect outcome.
Less fussy than cupcakes and more grown-up than cookies, the recipes in Martha Stewart’s New Pies & Tarts require little beyond butter, sugar, flour, and a pan.
From Pear, Fig, and Walnut Pie and Marbleized Lemon Tart with Sage, to Plum Galette and Strawberry Icebox Pie, they make the most of each season’s best ingredients. With flavors and textures for every taste and occasion, this exquisitely photographed cookbook of 150 recipes is replete with tips, techniques, and serving and storing ideas.
Using Martha Stewart’s New Pies & Tarts, home bakers will love the simple, classic elegance of making (and eating!) these delicious treats.
