From Publishers' Weekly:

Moskowitz and Romero (coauthors of Veganomicon) team up again and turn their attention to dessert in this collection of 75 egg, dairy and animal-free pies, cheesecakes, cobblers and tarts. Employing non-hydrogenated margarine and shortening, they offer bakers a wide variety of crusts to build on-from the traditional pie crust to chocolate, graham cracker and even buckwheat. Once they've got their crust handled (detailed techniques are included), readers can roll up their sleeves to create vegan versions of traditional pies like cherry, key lime, and pumpkin as well as a Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Tart, Chai-Spiced Rice Pudding Pie and Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake. The duo deserves plaudits for their user-friendly approach as well as their ability to keep scarcer ingredients to a minimum. Bakers who fear they won't be able to recreate these will be happy to discover that once they've mastered a crust or two they'll be able to whip together a Strawberry Field Hand Pie, Chocolate Mousse Tart, or even a Coconut Cream with confidence. Agency: The Agency Group.

From Library Journal:

Long before popular vegan chefs Moskowitz and Romero (Veganomicon; Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World) started writing indispensable vegan cookbooks, they were sharing recipes through their website, Post Punk Kitchen ( Like their other publications, this comprehensive guide to pies contains smart, sassy recipes that embrace rather than work around the vegan diet. Some recipes aren't exactly pie, but few readers will mind seeing Chocolate Galaxy Banana or Blueberry Bliss cheesecakes alongside such tempting offerings as Blackberry Bramble Pie, Salted Maple Pecan Pie, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Tartlets. Expect demand for this book, which vegans will reach for as often as other bakers consult Ken Haedrich's Pie. [New York tour.] (c) Copyright 2011.
