Product Details


“Bring the wisdom, quirkiness, and fun of the bakery to your home kitchen, and become a better baker along the way.”Epicurious

“Spend five minutes with this book and you will want to befriend author Lisa Ludwinski. The book, like the Detroit bakery it’s named for, celebrates community spirit, a serious love of baking, and a playfulness (Ludwinski hosted a 24-hour dance party to raise funds to open the bakery). Pies are organized here by season and are anything but ho hum, with options like blueberry plum balsamic pie and cardamom squash tahini pie.”Food & Wine

Eater’s own national critic Bill Addison says Detroit’s Sister Pie is the best pie shop in the U.S. This fact would be reason enough to order Sister Pie’s first cookbook, a gorgeously photographed and honestly written account of one team’s dedication to flaky pie crust, seasonal fruit, and unique pie-adjacent pastries. But the recipes will also appeal to bakers looking for new inspiration.”Eater

“Lisa Ludwinski, who honed her baking skills at Milk Bar and Four and Twenty Blackbirds in New York before opening her bakery in Detroit, has filled Sister Pie with 45 thrilling pie recipes, like blueberry-plum balsamic, toasted-marshmallow butterscotch and malted lime. For the anxious pie maker, she includes detailed instructions that are mercifully easy to follow. But it’s not all pies: Thirty recipes for equally adventurous baked goods (peanut butter-smoked paprika cookies, rhubarb blondies) round out this bursting-at-the-seams book.”The New York Times

“This stunning cookbook showcases the work of Lisa Ludwinski, whose recipes are nothing less than heartfelt.”Food Network

“We’d visit Detroit just to eat at this pie shop.”Bon Appétit

“ I’ve often made the three-hour trip to Detroit just to bring back pies from Sister Pie. Lisa Ludwinski’s crust is magic. But Sister Pie isn’t just about the baked goods and pie (even though it’s the best pie I’ve ever had). It’s about the community of the kitchen, the neighborhood, and the incredible city of Detroit. Get the book, make the pie, and let Lisa’s story and optimism inspire you.”—Jeni Britton Bauer, cofounder of Jeni’s and author of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home

“This isn’t just a book of Sister Pie’s best recipes, it’s a testament to what happens when you build a business that has more than one bottom line. This is a book about a community and about how sustaining community can be so sweet (. . . and savory).”—Julia Turshen, author of Now & Again, Feed the Resistance, and Small Victories

“I’ve yet to find a more lovely place in Detroit than this kitchen full of women making pies. We’re all so lucky that Lisa has distilled her baking magic into a book that we can bake (and dance) our way through at home.”—Joy the Baker, author of Joy the Baker Over Easy

“A friendly guide for all things related to fillings and crusts, both sweet and savory. . . . Complete with photographs, helpful hints like “paperclipping” cherries to remove their pits, and uplifting writing (“You did it! You are now ready to fill the pie”), this book will motivate readers to become their own master pie makers.”Publishers Weekly
