Sorry, It’s a Secret

So today I took my first turn at trying to make a blueberry pie. My work is having a pie making competition so I needed to test my recipe this weekend, because I am way too competitive and want to win.  Although, sorry guys, I am not giving out my recipe.  But do let me tell you this, pies are kind of hard.  I don’t like baking, so I am a little biased but especially fresh fruit based pies there is a lot of moisture and that can really effect your pie.  I also set off the fire alarm with my little cooking attempt… whoops…

So here are some tips from my first time making pie:

  • Check what you are adding into your pie…. this may seem like common sense but not all things are created equal.  If the recipe calls for lemon, it may not be possible to substitute in another citrus
  • There will be a lot of liquid, there are many different ways to combat this so do some research to find out what the best one is for you
  • Wrap the crust edges in tin foil so that they wont burn/ cook too quickly
  • Less is more. Pie is one of those things that are good because of there simplicity.  Don’t try and be too weird about it.  Take some poetic creativity though

With it being berry season, give making a pie a try!
