J. Kenji López-Alt 14 comments

The perfect pie is equal parts science and art, and there are few things more intimidating in the American culinary repertoire than pie crust. How many of you have slaved away at a crust only to have it crumble upon rolling? How many of you have pulled a beautiful pie out of the oven only to realize upon slicing into it that the perfectly golden brown crust is leathery or tough? Or that your apple pie filling has turned mushy in the oven? Here are the most essential tips and techniques that will guarantee a perfect pie for your Thanksgiving table. More

Pie of the Week: Cranberry Apple Slab Pie

Lauren Weisenthal 2 comments

A slab pie is bigger than the standard 9-inch round, slightly thinner, and designed to be enjoyed without forks (just a napkin to catch the juices). This apple and cranberry version is the perfect incarnation for any fall exploit that's more fun en masse. More

Cakespy: Doughnut Pies

Cakespy cakespy 2 comments

Don't let the photo fool you: while these holey treats may resemble doughnuts, they're actually pies! They are made up of morsels of pie crust which are filled, rolled up, and pinched to ensure the filling stays inside, then fried. While they're certainly not health food, they certainly are delicious. More

Cakespy: Chocolate Avocado Pie

Cakespy cakespy 2 comments

You might be hesitant to embrace the idea of Avocado Pie. After all, avocado is probably more famous for its starring role in guacamole, or as a sandwich or salad component than as a delicious dessert item. But avocado isn't unknown in the world of sweets, and this pie might just help you change your mind. More

Pie of the Week: Mini Sweet Cherry Pies

Lauren Weisenthal 1 comment

This weekend, while worrying over a dessert with the satisfaction level of pie and the portability of a cookie to tote to a Central Park soiree, I landed on an idea so simple, I can hardly believe that it took me this long to figure it out. Hand pies, made in my standard-sized muffin pan and filled with the delicious, simple berries of this blessed season. Yes. More

Pie of the Week: Blueberry Crumble Pie

Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

This is a great starter pie for blueberry season. The crisp, flaky crust is a perfect foil to the juicy berries, and the sweet and slightly savory oat crumble topping is easier to make than a traditional top crust. More

Cakespy: Cupcake Cream Pie

Cakespy cakespy Post a comment

As the custard sets, it absorbs some of the rich butteriness of the frosting, infusing the entire pie. As a result, the taste is kind of like cream pie meets birthday cake, in a decidedly delicious way. More

What would summer be without strawberries? Now that their tiny, dimpled faces are blushing at the markets once again, it's good to have some solid recipes up your sleeve.

Cakespy: Chocolate Coconut Pudding Pie in a Samoas Cookie Crust

Cakespy cakespy Post a comment

To truly maximize how many Samoas you can stuff into your mouth in one serving, you've simply got to crush them up and form them into a cookie pie crust. Using the same method as making a graham cracker crust, the Samoas cookie crust is the definition of decadence: sticky, crispy, and caramelly, it gets even crazier when you fill it with a rich, creamy chocolate pudding filling studded with extra coconut, and top it off with a billowy cloud of whipped cream. More

Pie of the Week: Orange Meringue Pie

Lauren Weisenthal 4 comments

When it comes to citrus in meringue pies, why do lemons always get the limelight? I put other flavors to the test and discovered that using oranges instead puts a great new spin on the old classic. Oranges make for a less acidic custard filling that plays equally well with a creamy, light meringue, without all the pucker of their yellow cousins. More

Pie of the Week: Chocolate Pudding Pie

Lauren Weisenthal 3 comments

When I was working in restaurants, there was no day of the year more reviled by the pastry kitchen than Valentine's Day. The special tasting menus, replete with over-the-top desserts for two and the showering of petit fours, after dinner treats, and parting gifts of chocolates were a nightmare. After all that Pepto-colored nonsense, I'd be craving homey comforts. For me this chocolate pudding pie is the expression of my Valentine's Day ideal. More
