Cutie Pies: 40 Sweet, Savory, and Adorable Recipes

 

by Dani Cone

Description
Praised by Bon Appetit, DailyCandy, and Sunset magazine, the secrets behind Dani Cone's signature handmade, all-natural miniature pies are revealed for the first time inside Cutie Pies: 40 Sweet, Savory, and Adorable Recipes. Whether you're grabbing the perfectly portable Flipside on the way to work, enjoying a Piejar as a tasty afternoon treat, or looking for a fun and impressive dinner party dessert, Cutie Pies provides the perfect morsels to satisfy sweet and savory cravings alike.

Inside Cutie Pies, Cone presents 40 exclusive recipes inspired by the unique line of compact pastries she serves at her Seattle-based Fuel Coffee and High 5 Pie locations, which have received a Best of Seattle Weekly award. Sweet, one-of-a-kind treats like a Mango-Raspberry-Lemon Piepop mingle with savory recipes like Cone's Curry Veggie Piejar, all in a distinct and delightful design.

Cutie Pies is illustrated throughout with more than 20 mouthwatering, full-color photographs, and its contemporary fashion and straightforward recipes enable bakers everywhere to create these tiny treats with big flavor.

About the Author
Barista and businesswoman Dani Cone is the founder and owner of three Fuel Coffee locations in Seattle, Washington, as well as High 5 Pie, where she developed her signature Cutie Pies, Flipsides, Piejars, and other tiny tasty pastries.

REVIEW
Thinking about fresh berry pie puts most people in a good mood. Thinking about fresh berry pie in single-serve portions can make one even happier. For me, the problem with standard pies is the amount that I am dedicated to make. I know I'll never eat it all- or shouldn't eat it all. However, Cone has solved that problem by showing us how we can make the whole pie, or serve it up for one or two.

Cutie Pies is a good introduction to making pies, as it features simple recipes with basic ingredients, and is all explained well for both the beginner and the novice. It also allows for a choice of pie crust to make, with vegan and gluten-free options you can make yourself. Cone expands on the standard berry pie concept (of which she gives us quite a few recipes), and serves up hors d'oeuvres ideas as well, such as petite Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella- and keeps it easy and accessible the entire time.

Cutie Pies may not be the most useful or most used cookbook in your collection, but if you are looking for great recipes for pies to impress, this will fit that niche. It is also a good selection for those who are following a vegan or gluten-free diet. I know where I will be getting an idea to present at my next gathering- for appetizer and dessert.
