Just think about it…you don't have to make a whole 9" pie to enjoy the divine combination of flaky crust and juicy fruit filling or graham cracker crunch and chocolate—a handheld pie packs all the pizzazz of the large version! And with all the options for free-form, structured and jar pies inside Handheld Pies you decide whether you want more crust, more filling or more portability. Sarah Billingsley and Rachel Wharton help take the fear out of making from-scratch piecrust, but the real treat is inventive recipes like Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Pie, Vanilla Malt Pie, Orange Marmalade-Mascarpone Pop Tarts and a fantastic selection of interchangeable crusts and fillings. Use your imagination for endless variations. Color photos.

Divided into "free form" pies (pop tarts, pocket pies), structured pies (mini pecan, mini pumpkin, etc.), and the jar pies. "Nuts and Bolts" covers crusts and fillings. Many recipes give choice of crusts (including cornmeal). Great variety of fillings--lots of fruit selections. Intro covered basics/techniques. Interesting profiles of various bakeries throughout book. Farm Cheese Pie and Orange Marmalade Pop Tarts-great!!
4/5 stars only due to wish book was bigger size.

I have become fascinated by jar pies. I never thought of using my canning jars to bake in. I haven't had time during the holidays to try out anything, but I'm collecting ingredients so I can practice on New Year's Day. It's great to make the house smell good. My overnight guests will be pleased to help me judge the results I'm sure.
