Are you intimidated by the idea of baking pie for Thanksgiving? Too many cardboard crusts, soggy bottoms and strangely undercooked fruit fillings? Don’t give up! Come to BookTrib’s Facebook Live “Pie Hotline” on Monday, November 23 at noon and ask author, master baker and dean of The Pie Academy, Ken Haedrich, all of your questions about baking the perfect pie from scratch.

Ken Haedrich is the author of more than a dozen cookbooks, including Pie Academy, The Harvest Baker, Maple Syrup Cookbook, and Home for the Holidays, a winner of the Julia Child Cookbook Award. Founder and “dean” of The Pie Academy, Haedrich is one of America’s most respected food writers and a recognized authority on baking — pies, in particular. His articles have appeared in many publications, including Better Homes and GardensCooking Light, and Bon Appétit

Ken’s gorgeous Pie Academy cookbook has 255 recipes for making the most scrumptious pies from scratch. We will be giving away a copy to one lucky viewer. To enter, email your questions about how to bake a better pie to [email protected]. Pour out your pie pain and our pie master will help you make it better — and you might be the lucky baker to receive the Pie Academy cookbook. 

After all, while we might skip roasting an entire turkey for our small, safe Thanksgiving celebrations this year, NO ONE skips pie.
