Right, Shelley. We'll get American Pie Classics in the collection for your students, but you have to promise not to use the recipes yourself and not to hit the kids up for pies in exchange for good grades!!!!


Always with love,

Oh, I would be willing to tackle it, but CAN'T edit franctions.

But I want this book in the collection, not for myself, smile, o.k. for
myself, but also for my students, smile.

Sounds fantastic.

Let me know if you have other takers though as I have other stuff I could,
not the word could, not "should" be doing, smile.

Dear Booksharians,

Is anyone interested in teaming with me on a cookbook called Classic
American Pies: Ready Crust? It has 58 pages of recipes and a 2 page index.

Here are the chapters followed by the names of a couple sample recipes.
;
1. Family Favorites * * * Butterscotch Meringue pie, fudge brownie pie,
Shaker Lemon Pie, Apricot Chiffon Pie, Cherry Crunch Pie, Rocky Road Pie

2. Quick n'Easy * * * creamy coconut pie, Mississippi mud pie, quick key
lime pie, quick blueberry cream pie, s'more pie, easy frozen strawberry pie

3. Cheesecakes Classics * * * cappuccino cheesecake, tropical cheesecake,
raspberry chocolate cheesecake,

4. Regional Selections * * * settler's sour cream raisin pie, macadamia nut
pie, apple praline pie, San Fernando Grape parfait pie, Pennsylvania Dutch
Shoofly pie, Georgia Peach Almond pie, Pacific Country apple pie, Florida
orange blossom pie, New Orleans French Quarter Pie, Virginia Peanut Brittle
pie,

5. Celebration Pies * * * Eggnog Praline Pie, Million $$$ pie, Pina Colada
pie, Black Russian pie, Grasshopper pie, frost on the pumpkin pie, Apple
mince pie

In trying to give a fair representation of the kinds of pies in each
chapter, I included several kinds of pies I wouldn't eat for money or to win
prizes on Fear Factor!

Scanning this book might be a challenge. Two recipes each on its own column are on most text pages, but the print is clear, not swirly or fan cy and the
margins are regular. There's also a thick horizontal, black line above the
recipe's name. There are some whole page illustrations, and some
illustrations below recipes which are surrounded by white background, not
text.

The pages are about seven by ten inches, and the book is spiral bound making
it easy to ly flat and to scan one page at a time if that helps with more
complicated formats.

I'd mail you a copy of the cookbook which you could keep. I have a second
copy I would use to validate if you'd put hold for Lissi in the title or
contact me when you were ready to upload.

The print is clear enough, that I could sort out the scanning jumbles that
are bound to occur in scanning a book like this. I could also write in just
the important bits from captions, for example, the Recipe for Cinderella
Pumpkin Tarts tells you to put a glob of whipped topping on top, but in the illustration, they added candy corn for a pretty garnish. I'd make a note of
that.

While I enjoy baking cakes, pies and drop and bar cookies, I'd rather not
make pastry crust. I like it that the pies in this book use crusts like
Keebler Ready Chocolate flavored crust. I figure any ready made pastry,
graham cracker, Orio or whatever, crust would work.

Here are some examples of the pie recipes.
