Sister Pie by Lisa Ludwinksi

Maybe pie can’t heal a troubled world – but we’re willing to bet it’s a start. Lisa Ludwinski’s debut cookbook, Sister Pie, tells the story of her bakery’s humble origins, from hosting fundraising 24-hour dance-a-thons to being named the best pie bakery in America by Eater.com critic Bill Addison. The pies are inventive – think Toasted Marshmallow-Butterscotch and Cardamom Tahini Squash – but so are the other baked goods: Salted Rosemary Shortbread, Peanut Butter Paprika Cookies, Egg-On-Top Sweet Potato and Cheddar Galettes will make any mouth water.
