Pie enthusiasts, if you will. If you love pie like we do, you’ve come to the right place. This is your mecca for the very best pie recipes, tips, techniques, and general pie-related things. 

Your Pie Problems—Fixed!

Making perfect pie crust is an art. With a little practice—and these important tips—you’ll be whipping up a masterpiece in no time.

Hands Off

Avoid kneading the dough too much when making your pie crust. Handle the dough just enough to mix it and roll it—not a touch more.

Simple Swap

Replacing butter with Crisco® Shortening is easy. One cup of butter is equal to 1 cup of shortening plus two tablespoons of water.

Stick to Shortening

Perfect pie crust? Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening is a must. Its high melting point creates tender, flaky layers in the crust as it bakes.
