When it comes to sweets, we don’t discriminate, but there’s something about pie that steals our heart every time. With her upcoming title, The Book on Pie, recipe developer Erin Jeanne McDowell has captured that feeling and turned it into a cookbook.
FYI, this isn’t just a book of pie recipes. It’s also a companion for any baker looking to master techniques and up their dessert game. No pie is intimidating with McDowell by your side—including this dreamy peanut butter cream pie with raspberry meringue.
“This is the pie for when you’re ready to break out of easy recipes and into medium,” she writes. “The peanut butter filling is easy to make, and then the meringue feels like an incredible triumph to swoop over the top. The pie looks straight out of a fairy tale, and the nostalgic flavor combo of PB&J is the icing on the cake.”
This may seem like a baking *project* but know that you can make the dough—and even bake and fill the pie—ahead. Just take a picture of your masterpiece before you gobble it up.
