Pie Squared: Irresistibly Easy Sweet & Savory Slab Pies by Cathy Barrow

Reviewed by Diane Basting (Library Staff)

Pi(e) day is fast approaching and I’m always looking around for the next pie recipe to try out, after all who doesn’t have their day brightened by a slice of pie? A full round pie filling a pie plate to the edges with a nice topping of crust is an iconic image that never occurred to me to try to alter until this lovely book crossed my desk. A slab pie is an easier way to serve pie to a large number of people without a lot of fuss or mess. The recipes in this book are refined to a simplified manor that won’t over flow a 9 by 12 lipped sheet pan. So far I have made three of these squared pies recipes and my family and I have enjoyed them immensely; the best part is the pans are slim, flat, and they freeze very well. I confess to having two of the chicken pot pie recipe wrapped up in my freezer waiting for evenings when I just can’t face cooking but need something hearty and comforting. Happy baking everyone!
