TIPS AND TRICKS!
- Whether you use homemade pie dough or a prepare unbaked pie shell, make sure the dough is cold when you add the filling. This will help make your baked pie crust flaky.
- Keep an eye on your pie while it bakes. If you bake it too long you could end up with cracks on the top. One way to tell your pie is done is by checking the middle. It will be slightly jiggly. As it cools it will continue to bake.
- If you do end up with cracks in the top of your pie, no worries! It will still taste great – just cover up the imperfections with whipped cream!
- If your pie is wet on top you might have overbaked it. If the eggs are cooked too long in the filling they release moisture which will collect on the surface of your pie.
- The pie will smell amazing while it bakes, but don’t be tempted to slice it while it’s still warm! The filling needs time to fully set – if you slice it too soon the filling might ooze out all over the place.
- You can use store-bought whipped cream, but it’s so easy to make your own!
- Make your pie ahead of time. Up to a day in advance works well and gives the pie time to develop its flavors.
