Today I’m sharing a cookbook review of “The Norske Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes “- Do you have a favorite dessert to bake? In our house pies are one of the top favorite desserts. There has rarely been a pie that has crossed our lips that we didn’t enjoy. This was why I jumped at the chance to share a new release baking cookbook that will be coming out this April 14th! Below I have a little history about this cookbook, “The Norske Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes” by Authors Jerry Bechard and Cindee Borton-Parker. Now let me hand you a napkin to wipe up the drooling that may happen from reading about this cookbook. There’s a wonderland of pie recipes in this cookbook and more. But, before I get into sharing a recipe, outline of the book, and review, let me give you a little back story of the Norske Nook. Affiliate Links may be included in the post.

The Norske Nook, was founded as a small-town café in 1973. Now a foursome of revered pie shrines in Osseo, Rice Lake, Eau Claire, and Hayward, Wisconsin. The Nook’s international fame grew from a tradition of Midwest home baking. Informed by Scandinavian roots. Enriched by the luscious ripe fruit, sumptuous sour creams, and cream cheeses of America’s dairy land. More than fifty new pie recipes have been created by the Nook bakers since 1990. Jerry Bechard purchased the Osseo café from founder Helen Myhre. The Norske Nook has won thirty-six blue ribbons at the National Pie Championships in Florida—including three in 2014, for Lemon Cream Cheese, Peaches and Cream, and Jamberry.

Cookbook Review 

Our thoughts on the cookbook

The book is a hardback book with a lovely cover. Lovely photographs with a little history of the Norske Nook restaurant and bakery in Wisconsin. The images reminded me of our quaint town about 1 1/2 hours south of us the town is Solvang. Cookbook Recipe | Chocolate Peanut Butter PieCookbook highlights:

  • There are tips throughout the book. At times even recommending firm store-bought fruits or frozen for certain recipes to keep better. Let me say the pies look oh so good! Some of the recipes will refer you back to a specific section for the pie crust, pudding, or topping.
  • There will be page flipping. But, they are easy-to-find pages indicated for which recipe to follow.
  • There is a section for sugar-free pies. For me the cheesecake section could have been bigger but, the tortes and other recipes made up for it. I already have a favorite cheesecake recipe.
  • The book finishes with Scandinavian Specialties! I did try the strawberry cream cheese muffin recipe from the book. I’ll be sharing all about that recipe later. I can’t wait to make one of the pies to share with you! 

Who this cookbook is for?

  • I think if you love to bake, want to learn to bake, or want to have a variety of special recipes for making pies and desserts this book is going to be a great choice! It’s easy to follow and has straightforward recipes.
  • Yummy! Additionally, I think this would make a great gift for anyone who loves to bake!
