It’s giveaway time!
As most of you know my second cookbook, Not-So-Humble Pie, was recently released, and to celebrate I am going to give away two copies! I am really proud of this book, and I must thank my publisher for the AMAZING work they did! This book is in full color and it has lots of pretty photographs (at least I think they are since I took them). Because I love you, and I want you to get as many chances to win as possible, I am offering you three ways to win! You do not have to jump through too many hoops, just do the following:
To enter -
First, comment below and tell me about your favorite pie recipe. Is it your grandmother’s apple pie? Maybe it is a recipe you clipped from the local paper? Whatever it is, tell me about it. Inquiring minds want to know!
Second, Tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this post so your followers can enter too, then post a link to that tweet in the comments below. Tweet whatever you like, and if you want to mention me (which would be lovely) my Twitter handle is @BakingBlog.
Finally, tell your friends on Facebook by sharing a link to this entry. Just post a link back here so I can see you did.
The giveaway ends July 1st, 2012 at 11 pm CST. The winner will be selected at random and notified via email (so be sure to use a valid email address when commenting). In the event that the same person wins both books (with multiple entries it could happen) a second winner will be selected. Limit 3 (three) entries per person. Open to residents of the US and Canada only (sorry, shipping is darn expensive!). I am providing the books from my own personal supply.
What pie cookbook giveaway would be complete without a pie recipe? This recipe is not in my latest book, this is an all new creation! Summer is here and that means the peaches are back at the market. If you have been reading for a while you know that I love peaches, so when they are in season I buy up as many as I can. For this pie I combined a little salted caramel sauce into the filling to add buttery richness. Caramel and peaches are beaches and margaritas, they are made for each other, so the addition was a no-brainer. Rather than a typical pastry crust for the topping I decided on a buttery crumble. It adds a touch of rustic charm to this somewhat sophisticated pie. I like this pie best with no adornment, but you could serve it with ice cream, or whipped cream if you wanted to doll it up. Personally, I don’t need the frills. It is just fine the way it is!
