    Best pie crust ever!

  • tjnelson1hotmail  on  October 31, 2014

    I can't say I have made any of her recipes, but I would be happy to try!

  • stockholm28  on  October 31, 2014

    Shoofly pie

  • deucemom  on  November 1, 2014

  • Titch  on  November 1, 2014

    The White Christmas peppermint cake, because I love minty things

  • gigihotchkiss  on  November 1, 2014

    I love the white velvet cake with milk chocolate ganache from Rose's Heavenly Cakes.

  • hillsboroks  on  November 1, 2014

    I love her berry pie recipes where you reduce the juice to keep the need for thickeners to a minimum.

  • Analyze  on  November 1, 2014

    Confession – I haven't made a Rose Levy Beranbaum recipe yet. I'm mostly baking/cooking through my cookbooks, as a huge project, so I haven't been doing much in the way of other recipes. I did come across Rose's blog and really enjoyed it, as I was looking for information about the internal temperature of a finished cake. I would love to win this cookbook though!

  • pgarcia  on  November 1, 2014

    I have made the biscotti recipe from her Christmas Cookie book for years It's a hit!

  • Sarabclever  on  November 1, 2014

    I'm not sure, but I love her Cake Bible. I'm still curious to try the mayonnaise cake!

  • bching  on  November 1, 2014

    My favorite is the open-faced fresh blueberry pie. It's delicious–avoiding the jammy texture of most blueberry pies, and relatively quick and easy, especially compared to most of her recipes.

  • maisie_grn  on  November 1, 2014

    All of her pies bring my soul bliss!

  • Aggie92  on  November 1, 2014

    Sadly, I don't own any of her cookbooks. I would love to start baking with this one.

  • yegana  on  November 1, 2014

    İ got interested to get it.

  • AnnaZed  on  November 1, 2014

    I made her baguette recipe and if you really follow it (which is hard!) it comes out pretty great

  • trudys_person  on  November 1, 2014

    Chocolate Oblivion Truffle Torte from The Cake Bible. I've made it countless times, and it's amazing – always blows people away! The Cake Bible was one of the first cookbooks I ever owned, and I've made more recipes from it than any other cookbook I own, including three wedding cakes.

  • gastronom  on  November 1, 2014

    From The Pie and Pasrty Bible, her recipe for Pecan Pie is the best! Not too sweet, uses golden syrup, has never failed me.

  • TippyCanoe  on  November 1, 2014

    A number of years ago, when the Cake Bible came out, I worked in a Seattle bookshop and we used to hand-sell that book to just about everyone that cooked. I have loved that book ever since and have made many of the recipes. My favorite stand-by (made for most kid birthdays) is probably the all-American chocolate butter cake with a milk chocolate buttercream. So excited about the new book!

  • Lisathebaker  on  November 2, 2014

    So excited to have this new resource right before the holidays!

  • calmond79  on  November 2, 2014

    I looked up some of her recipes and the Chocolate Tweed Angel Food Cake sounds heavenly…pun intended! 😉

  • chawkins  on  November 2, 2014

    The open-faced blueberry pie is the freshest tasting blueberry pie ever, since some of the blueberries are not cooked and the rest are cooked to a delicious jam flavored with lemon juice.

  • GoldenLeica  on  November 2, 2014

    I make a variation on one of the variations in the Pie and Pastry Bible. She has a recipe for Pure Pear Pie, which is a variation of her Best All American Apple Pie. I put brandied currants in it. I put a round of pastry in a beautiful handmade ceramic pie plate (with absolutely beautiful blue and brown glazes on it), fill with the fruit, and then fold the pastry over like a galette so that the beautiful rim of the pie plate shows. I've become famous in my family for this pie.

  • sgump  on  November 2, 2014

    How nice to see stockholm28 mentioning RLB's shoofly pie recipe: Yum!

  • Mordevachi  on  November 3, 2014

  • KristinBee  on  November 3, 2014

    The Pumpkin Chiffon Pie has become our standby for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my husband's birthday. It's the perfect pumpkin-y treat and not too heavy after a festive meal.

  • Bec  on  November 3, 2014

    So hard to choose but Rose's Pecan Pie recipe is brilliant. Love the Maple syrup flavour.

  • ButterYum  on  November 3, 2014

  • rivergait  on  November 5, 2014

    I bought The Cake Bible about 30 years ago when I thought I would have a career as a baking caterer for weddings. That didn't work out. Now widowed (and often cooking for one), this contest got me to relook at that book, and I think I need to make something (albeit a small recipe) JUST FOR ME. I'd love this new book to peruse.

  • milgwimper  on  November 6, 2014

    I don't he any of her books. As mine is in storage thousands of miles away. I gave her books away as gifts but I always wanted her books myself.
