Typos! Questionable Reliability
October 22, 2014
Today I made my 1st recipe from this book. It was the banana creme pie which looks wonderful and guaranteed to please. The pie turned out great and has a wonderful flavor however, there were two typos which threw me for a loop. First of all there is no instruction for adding the cornstarch (which I guessed should be added last to the milk/sugar on a low boil). Then, what's crazy is that the recipe says to bake the pie shell at 425 and afterwards lower the heat to 325 degrees, but there is no further step to baking as the pie is setting up in the fridge! This blooper was particularly confusing to me bc I suffer from ADHD and dyslexia!
I had to read and re-read the recipe about 20 times. I worry about the reliability of this cookbook, but will reserve judgment until I make another recipe. If I find another mistake, I'll send it back and request a refund. So sad, you'd think Williams Sonoma would have someone reviewing or editing these recipes, but they didn't.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Design
Cons: Inaccurate
