Recommends it for: anyone who enjoys pie; vegans and those who know vegans
I’d read every book to date by both Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero except this one, and have really liked or loved them all, so even though I’m not much of a pie person I decided I had to read this cookbook. I also suspected that I’d get some ideas for vegan pot lucks, and I’m always looking for great pot luck contributions.

This book has good instructions and the whole thing is very readable. It’s entertaining, informative, with clear text throughout. Many of the recipes are very cr

I now have all three of these specialist vegan baking books. I started off with vegan cupcakes take over the world which in my gradual switch to a vegan diet has allowed me to see that veganizing my vast amount of dairy filled cupcake cookery books is now firmly do-able. I then bought vegan cookies invade your cookie jar and again I was not disappointed, not only are there some wonderful homely recipes but these books make you feel like converting to veganism will not be the end of your sugar fi ...more

This is a great little cookbook and it is even great for people who are not truly me.

It has great photos, it has simple clear recipes and the recipes turn out great!!!

My husband who is no where near being a Vegan loves the desserts and prefers the vegan cheesecake to real cheesecake. Myself, I prefer the real cheesecake, but the vegan one does taste good, but the texture is definitely different from regular cheesecake, BUT it is VERY tasty and full of flavour!

I am going to buy this

Pumpkin Cheesecake: I tried this recipe with high hopes, since we already have a cheesecake recipe we love (albeit using lots of dairy analogs like vegan cream cheese) and I'm a pumpkin fanatic. Unfortunately, while I liked the texture and taste of this pie, it didn't quite meet those expectations. Still, the recipe was fun to follow -- there were many steps but they were all easy -- and the finished product was pretty, with a homey pecan crumble topping.

Happily, I also had the opportunity to at

I have family members who are vegan so I used this book for pie recipes for upcoming holiday family dinners. Good introduction with general tips for pie baking, as well as a section on key items for a vegan baker. While I prefer my non-vegan desserts (fewer processed ingredients like vegetable oil and soy products) this book has really good recipes that I think will please everyone at the table! ps. I love that this book is dedicated to the late Adrienne Shelley, "who celebrated life, love, and ...more

Cookbooks from the Moskowitz/Romero duo never disappoint. However, I did notice a few annoying things about this cookbook, such as telling me to pre-bake a pie crust without telling me at what temperature or for how long to do it! Oops!

OMFSM, this looks fantastic. I just need a reason. C'mon universe, give me a reason to make pie.

I was making strawberry hand pies last week, when I realized I had never put this cookbook up here. While their jokes sometimes fall flat, the recipes aren't always the most clearly written, and sometimes you wonder who would want to eat that, this is still an easy to use, awesome cookbook.

Both practical and delectable, this specialty cookbook gives me much exciting motivation and encouraging confidence to make my own pies and such. After reading through the pages -- complete with flavorful terminology such as "blob" and "adorable" throughout -- I feel well equipped with techniques and tricks just as well as recipes. It sticks, just like syrup!

I'm not really a huge fan of pies, but this book has convinced me I can actually bake one. It does take some skill, but Isa and Terry are very encouraging and honest. Looking forward to trying an apple galette!

We're not vegan, but a member of our household can't have dairy.

I was hesitant to get this cookbook because we mostly make fruit pies and the recipes we use don't call for dairy. However, this cookbook is still worth having. There are a number of cheesecake recipes as well as pudding pies. And let's not forget dairy-free pumpkin pie; Thanksgiving will be the better for it. Our non-dairy eater is excited to simply make the filling for the Chocolate Pudding Pie and eat it by the bowl.

i don't know if a whole book on vegan pies is necessary, because save for a few good vegan crust recipes, what else do you need? i guess for creamy pies, that's good, but those are the kind of pies i like. or custard pies like pecan or pumpkin. fine. the book is also fine.

I'm a big baker, but I've always been a little intimidated by pie crusts. Then my hubby went vegan, and it seemed like pie crusts would be something I would never tackle. My poor husband has been left out of the dessert fun during the holidays for the last two years. I had seen this book before and so I decided to give it a whirl. Boy am I glad I did. My crust didn't turn out perfect the first time (pie crust is something you kind of need a feel for), but the authors' clear and simple directions ...more

Pies aren't my thing unless they involve creamy chocolate (which I have an awesome recipe for already). But my long time boyfriend adores pie, especially fruit pies (I don't know what is wrong with him either....ok, so I enjoy fruit pie SOMETIMES, but craving it? Try never.). I enjoyed the various different types of pie available in Vegan Pie and look forward to trying more of them. I loaned this from the library but may need to add it to my collection, perhaps it can make me like pies m

The book does offer some really amazing pie recipes! I love the cheesecakes in particular (however, the preparing, baking and refrigerating means you need to start making it the day before), and have made the super easy very berry choc chip crumble on many an occasion (a very fuss-free a quick recipe). Just don't get into the mistaken train of thought that vegan desserts are necessarily any healthier than non-vegan ones - heaps of sugar is prescribed in the recipes, although I suppose it is very ...more

Full disclosure: I haven't made any of the recipes in this book. But, based on the wonderful recipes in the authors' previous works, I'm sure they'll be as delicious as they look.

I love the precursory information, and the way it's written is both informative and highly entertaining.

I'm really looking forward to my husband (hopefully) being able to eat gluten again, because this book is tops on my list to purchase, and the pies to bake. Mmmm. PIE.

Although so many of these looks absolutely yummy, I've narrowed it down to three that I'm definitely going to make - Chai-Spiced Rice Pudding, page 120; Apple Brown Betty on page 130 (my Mom always made the regular version of this)and French Toast Apple Cobbler, page 133. Hmmm, all apple! There are also great recipes for crusts (think vodka crust!)and doughs.

I made the Appleberry and the Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding pies. The former was pretty tasty, though I don't like to taste the sourness in green apples. I'll use red apples next time. The latter was a little difficult to make and a little on the bitter side. (though it's my fault - I used bittersweet chocolate chips instead of semisweet!).

Liked the book. Some recipes are easier than others (to be expected in a cookbook), but given the size, the balance and selection is very good.
I'd like to have seen at least one recipe or instruction on making mini-pies, since I'm only cooking for me and I have some little one-person pie tins, but I'll figure it out eventually.

I love pie, who doesn't love pie? These recipes are scrumptious, just like all the desserts in the other two books. My go to pie book. Made the basil peach pie...sinful!

Heerlijke recepten, maar de overkill aan suiker is absoluut onnodig en doet enkel af aan de smaak. Behalve dan misschien voor de bovengemiddelde suiker junkie.
