GOURMET NEWS: Are You In “Knead?”

Move over, Butterball, there’s a new hotline in town. For the third year, The Crisco Pie Hotline is helping bakers in “knead” of a little pie baking advice. Last year’s most commonly asked questions were:

-“How do I prevent the bottom of my pumpkin pie crust from becoming soggy?”
-“How long can I freeze my unbaked fruit pie?”
-“Can you give me step-by-step instructions for making a pie crust?”

With help from the Crisco Pie Pros, even a beginner can bake a pie with confidence. Just call 1-877-FOR PIE TIPS (toll free), to speak with a live expert about your particular pie challenge, or to ask general questions, including the latest baking and storage tips and time-saving hints—including recorded winning tips from the 2008 APC Crisco National Pie Championship’s amateur champions.


Perfect pies are a call or a click away.

Pie lovers can also visit Pie Central at to find useful videos with troubleshooting tips, step-by-step visual instructions to create delicious pie crusts and simple, yet tasty recipes using seasonal ingredients.

And speaking of Pie Lovers…if you’re not a current fan of Pushing Daisies, an ABC comedy about our favorite pie maker, Wednesdays at 8 p.m., please give it a try. This delightful show about love, supernatural gifts, pies and a weekly murder mystery, is in danger of being canceled! Learn more at and
