Magpie

Sweets and Savories from Philadelphia's Favorite Pie Boutique

Magpie Artisan Pie Boutique is a jewel in Philadelphia’s food-town crown, and you can recreate it at home!
Since 2012, the pocket-size shop on South Street in Philadelphia has been turning out flaky crusts and luscious fillings. Now this book serves up Magpie’s seasonal menu for home bakers everywhere: the fruity, creamy, and nutty pies; hand pies, pot pies, and quiches; and even pie shakes and pie “fries,” all fine-tuned to exacting standards and with lots of step-by-step instruction for that all-important crust.
Baker-owner Holly Ricciardi’s upbringing deep in the Central Pennsylvania countryside provided the basis for Magpie’s perfect synthesis of classic favorites and new twists-alongside down-home favorites like Sweet Crumb Pie and Shoofly Pie you’ll find Holly’s bourbon-infused update of her great-grandmother’s special butterscotch pie as well as the ingenious (and instant-sellout) Cookie Dough Hand Pies. More than 90 recipes also include sweets like:
  • Cranberry Curd Mini Meringue Pies
  • Blueberry Rhuby Rose Pie
  • Chocolate Blackout Pie
And savories like:
  • Summer Squash Pie
  • Ham-Leek-Dijon Potpies
  • Quiche Lorraine

From crusts to crumbles and sumptuous savories to sweet confections, there’s a Magpie pie for every occasion.
