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
