TIP OF THE DAY: Bake A Pie For National Pie Day

January 23rd is National Pie Day.

We grew up in a pie-baking household; Mom is a great baker who loves to bake pies. She rolled out the dough, placed it in a Pyrex pie plate and added the filling. Then we got to pinch the edges. We savored the aroma of a baking pie; and counted the minutes after it was removed from the oven, when it would be cool enough to cut.

While pie-baking seems a snap to us, a recent national survey by Crisco (which Mom loves in her pie crusts) revealed that:

  • 59% of Americans say that pie is the hardest dessert to prepare from scratch
  • Nearly two-thirds (65%) agree that making the crust is the hardest part of baking a pie from scratch
  • Only 12% say choosing a recipe is the hardest part of preparing the classic dessert

    O.K., then; you know what kind of pie you’d like. Whip one up today for National Pie Day. The typical pie recipe requires just 30 minutes of prep time and 30 to 40 minutes in the oven.

  • Try making this apple pie recipe from Crisco. We love how the pie crust is rimmed with little stars, cut with a cookie cutter.
  • Here’s a video that shows how easy it is to make a pie crust.
    If you have questions, call the experts at The Crisco Pie Hotline, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET. The phone number is by calling 1.877.FOR PIE TIPS (877-367-7438).
