To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Betty Crocker Pie & Pastry cookbook from the 1960s is my gold standard for pie recipes - simple, easy to follow, reliable recipes. This new edition is lacking in many ways; while several recipes are duplicated, it doesn't give options for 8in, 9in, or 10in pies (all recipes seem to be for 9in pies) and many recipes call for using pre-made commercial pie crusts or other processed ingredients. Positives of this edition are the expanded sections on savory pies, it is well-organized, and the photography is great.
Ok, I'm officially happy AND excited. THIS is THE book to have. A wonderful addition to your library AND in awesome condition. I'm going to get another for my friend who collects cookbooks. He's going to LOVE it! I highly recommend it!
I highly recommend this book. The multitude of recipes are easy to understand and have beautiful photos of the finished items. I checked out this book from my local library and then decided that I had to have it!
