Old-fashioned favorites are paired alongside modern reimaginings in this nostalgic debut baking book from Karlynn Johnston of The Kitchen Magpie . Suitable for bakers of all skill levels and featuring over 125 delicious recipes, Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky is destined to become a much-loved addition to any family kitchen.

This timeless collection of sweet treats combines long-forgotten classics with deliciously revamped recipes. Learn how to bake time-honored desserts like Saskatoon Berry Pie, Grandma Marion's Honey Cookies, and No-Bowl Chocolate Vinegar Cake -- then, jazz things up with their modern twists- White Chocolate Saskatoon Galette, a Stuffed Skillet Cookie, and Root Beer Float Cupcakes. And, of course, there's the recipe that started it all- the (almost) lost prairie favorite, Flapper Pie. When Karlynn first posted this recipe on her blog, The Kitchen Magpie , it went viral, drawing enthusiastic and sentimental responses from people reminiscing about their childhood and family food memories.
An approachable book for all skill levels, Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky covers everything you need to know about being a modern-day old-fashioned baker- how to set up your kitchen and stock your pantry, and tips for handling tricky techniques like making pie dough and releasing a cake from the pan. The recipes cover everything from cakes to candies, doughnuts to dainties, and pies to puddings, with the same gorgeous photography that has made The Kitchen Magpie a go-to blog for passionate home bakers.
As Karlynn writes in the introduction, "I was raised with the knowledge that food is love, family, tradition and the focal point of any occasion." This book is a delicious demonstration of Karlynn's wisdom -- an instant classic to be shared through the generations.
