A new addition to the Martha Stewart paperback library, for those who love the simple, classic elegance of making (and eating!) pies and tarts, and for the 11 million readers of Martha Stewart Living, the 4 million viewers per week of "The Martha Stewart Show," and especially for the fans of the best-selling Martha Stewart's Cookies and Martha Stewart's Cupcakes.
The natural follow-up to the wildly successful Martha Stewart's Cookies and Martha Stewart's Cupcakes, Martha Stewart's New Pies & Tarts boasts 150 recipes, each with an accompanying photo. In this one-stop resource, readers will find down-home classics, such as chocolate cream pie and double-crust apple pie, savory comforts like mini chicken potpies, as well as cream-filled tarts that come together easily with seasonal fruits. Here, too, are simple instructions for decorative crusts and finishing techniques (latticework, cutouts, classic edgings), a complete Basics section that includes how to make classic doughs (extra flaky all-butter crusts, press-in cookie crusts, delicate puff pastry, and more), and plenty of make-ahead tips and tricks for shortcutting your way to a perfect outcome.
