WE'RE THE PIE PEOPLE

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.

Weigh It Down

Ceramic pie weights work best when weighing down a pie crust. No ceramic? No problem! Dried beans work great, too.

Keep It Fresh

After opening a container of Crisco® oil or shortening, write the date on the package so you know when you first broke the seal.

Go Halfsies

If you love the benefits of shortening, but want the flavor of butter, use half butter and half shortening in your baking recipes!
