Cutie Pies for Summertime

All the beautiful, colorful summer fruits popping up at the Pybus Public Market are inspiring us to get into our kitchens and bake up sweet treats. Our "Cutie Pies" book (written by Dani Cone) features 40 sweet and savory recipes for miniature pies. ($16.99).

The book specializes in teaching you to create adorable miniature pies, both sweet and savory..

... innovative small pies baked in glass jars ...

... savory puffs, tarts and pies just begging to be served at your next elegant cocktail party ...

As fans of cake pops, we get quite a kick out of the new Pie Pops trend!

"Cutie Pies" also includes recipes for Petite 5s, Flipsides, and a few full-sized pies.

We also recommend Maxine Clark's "Pies, Glorious Pies." Maxine Clark is one of our favorite cookbook authors. In this new book, she shares recipes for savory pies - Posh Pie, portable pies, Classic Bacon & Egg pies, and empanadas - as well as exotic pies like Five-spice Venison Puffs and Mango Curd Pavlova Pie. You can also count on her to include a couple comfort-food autumn classics, such as Spiced Baked Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie. $24.95.

Find "Cutie Pies," "Pies, Glorious Pies" and our other gourmet cookbooks at the Gilded Lily store in the historic Olympic Hotel building on North Wenatchee Avenue.
