I received a free copy of The Baking Bible and a Rose’s Perfect Pie Plate to review and one of each to giveaway from the publisher. I received no further compensation. All opinions are my own.
Pies aren’t my strong point. So imagine me baking an elaborate, gorgeous, lattice decorated Sour Cherry Pie. No worries. I had the ultimate recipe and guide to follow. The Baking Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. Rose has written several best selling cookbooks including The Cake Bible, The Pie and Pastry Bible, The Bread Bible and Rose’s Heavenly Cakes.
I had a little more help than the recipe alone. The publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt sent along this lovely ceramic pie plate from Harold Import Co.. Rose’s Perfect Pie Plate is one of several dessert specific bakeware items in Rose’s new line of bakeware. Along with the pie plate, Rose packed in its own protective storage box. The box reminds me of a hatbox. Those boxes were designed to protect a treasured hat. Great idea to protect a new favorite pie plate.
What I really love that is different about this ceramic pie plate is the deep fluted cuts. Together with Rose’s recipe for a Perfect Tender and Flaky Cream Cheese Pie Crust, I had what I needed to attempt this delicious pie.
What do you think? How did I do?

Here are some photos of my pie baking experience.
I decided to use the hand knead method. Everything is done in the bag.
Look at the bits of butter in the crust. Pie bakers know that makes the best flakes!
This dough was very easy to work.
You can’t forget about the filling!
My first attempt at lattice work. So pretty.
Into the oven.
