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 vegan...like 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!
Kristina
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

Best pie recipes ever from the best vegan cookbook authors ever!

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.
Saleris
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.
Lisa
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!
Hester
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.
Debra
Presented in a very visually pleasing way. Easy to follow directions. Mostly one page, making it easy to file the recipes.
Brandy
I think I've made about 8 pies from this book so far and I only disliked one (Key Lime). Five stars is more than fair.
Valerie
I've made three or four pies from here, I think. I LOVE this cookbook. Vegan cheesecake has changed my life.
Yodamom
Made all our Thanksgiving pies from this book and all turned out fantastic. Our fav. The Chai Pie
