--Jon Stewart

"I almost ate the book! If my bubby made pies like this, I'd weigh 400 pounds."
--Billy Crystal

"If a pie cooling in a country breeze is your idea of baking nirvana, with its golden crust and juicy filling beckoning, then the delightful recipes in Bubby's Homemade Pies will guide you toward that goal and, perhaps, initiate the appearance of 'Pie of the Month' at your house. Now wouldn't that be a sweet and welcoming sight?"
--Lisa Yockelson, award-winning author of Baking by Flavor and ChocolateChocolate

"My dad always says, 'Save your fork, there's pie!'"
--Kate Douglass, owner of The Spotted Pig

Bake the buckle on a lipped baking sheet for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the buckle comes out free of batter (berry juice is to be expected). Cool it for 30 minutes, then serve warm or at room temperature. Store loosely covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Chill the pie, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving. It holds for up to 4 days.
