As a comprehensive guide to the making of America's favorite dessert, Walter's new book offers plenty of information and inspiration to raise the quality of pies produced in America's ovens. Walter begins with an extensive inventorying and analysis of the ingredients that make up today's pies, from crusts' shortening and flour to the various fruits (and vegetables) that fill them. Detailed instructions for preparing piecrust, that touchstone of home kitchen expertise, follow. Walter's catalog of pies covers not only sweet fruit pies but savory ones as well. Pies with nut crusts and phyllo pastries get separate attention. Her assessment of various types of apples for pies will no doubt provoke controversy, since pie bakers usually have their own definite opinions on the suitability of apple varieties. A glossary, a listing of mail-order sources, and a comprehensive bibliography ensure that no pie-related topic goes unaddressed. Mark Knoblauch
