A new, easy-to-make classic, the cranberry pie, will make every holiday season bright and cheery when it’s served up!

Art of the Pie by Kate McDermott

This post is a part of a series of cookbook posts that I’ll be running from now through December. I was not monetarily compensated for this post but I did receive this cookbook for free as a review copy. I receive numerous cookbooks throughout the year and only choose to highlight and write about the ones I truly love.

Dessert folks tend to be split between the cake lovers and the pie lovers. And though I will profess to love ALL desserts (other than rice pudding which is a post for another time), secretly I will always pick pie over cake. Thankfully I am not alone in this opinion and no one is better equipped to understand than my friend Kate McDermott who wrote the Art of the Pie.(Jump directly to the recipe.)

I absolutely love my friend Kate, who I met years ago at a food writing conference. We chatted about blogging and food writing, and bonded over our love pastry crust and pies. Kate teaches Pie Camps around the country, where she gently guides thousands of people in the art of making pies. To her, pies are life, and the passion and desire comes through in her book.

Though I’ve never had the pleasure of taking one of her pie camp classes, reading her books is the next best thing. Yes, you can pick up the book, turn to a recipe and make something delightful. But reading it is like hanging out with Kate, warm, inviting and comforting. If you’re the sort of person who loves to read a book like a novel, the stories and anecdotes in Art of the Pie are exactly the sort of thing that you would adore. I do.

I agree with you, Irwin. A cookbook has to be so much more to me than just instruction. I want a story behind the recipe. I want to be instructed and amused. And I am not a big sweets eater although I will indulge in a delicious slice of cake or pie. Stick gelato under my nose and watch out for your hand! I love the creamy, smooth, rich glob in my mouth. YUM! I’ll have to check out Kate’s cookbook. Have a great day!!
