Barbara Swell’s “The Lost Art of Pie Making: Made Easy”

I picked up this little book on Amazon a few years ago to fill up my “$25 to free shipping”, and I don’t think I’ve ever found a cookbook as helpful as this in making desserts.  Yes, I have the Martha Stewart tome Pies & Tarts, but that is too clinical for what should be the simple, pioneering joy of pie making.  Along with traditioaln and modern-twists on the varieties of pie, Swell offers vintage advertisements and lore on the quintessentially feminine art of pie.
