Allison Kave made pies as a hobby, until one day her boyfriend convinced her to enter a Brooklyn pie-making contest. She won. In fact, her pies were such a hit that she turned pro.
People can’t get enough of her Bourbon Ginger Pecan pie, her whimsical Root Beer Float Pie, her addictive Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie. And the crusts—oh, the crusts!—are so impossibly flaky, so utterly delicious, that pie eaters around the world will rejoice that Allison has at last divulged her techniques and tips. Organized by month, the book includes pies for every sweet tooth, from inventive pies like Chocolate Lavender Teatime to old-school comfort pies like Candy Apple.

Also available from Allison Kave: Butter & Scotch.

Baker & Taylor
Collects inventive recipes for a variety of pies such as root beer float pie, bourbon-ginger pecan pie, and chocolate lavender pie, with instructions for different crusts, including classic, vegan, gluten-free, and chocolate cookie crust.

This is beautiful. I haven't even cooked from it yet; but I have spend literal hours flipping and re-flipping through the inventive flavors and gorgeous food styling. Total decadence. Lots of fun.

Can't give a full 5 because I haven't tried any recipes- although they all look divine.

My favourite pie book so far. This is a great book to have on your shelf if you're looking for a pie only book. It divides all its recipes up by month so you can bake seasonal pies all year. It is my go-to book if I have to troubleshoot crust, and has so many inventive pies! You could bake one pie every week of the year if you wanted, and never repeat a pie (or make a pie that is even slightly similar to anything else in the book.
