What Is The Secret To A Good Pie?
This is one of those questions where you’d get a hundred different answers depending on who you ask. In my opinion, the two secrets to a good pie are the crust and the texture of the filling.
- If you’re making a homemade crust, it should have a buttery flavor and a light, crisp texture. You want the crust to be hearty and thick enough to hold the filling but not so thick that it becomes the predominant flavor and texture. Click here for a great homemade pie crust recipe.
- No matter the ingredients or flavors, the texture of your pie filling should be similar to maple syrup before you bake it. Obviously, you’ll have fruits or nuts in the filling, but the base sauce for the filling should be thick, like honey or syrup, so that as your pie bakes, it will become firm. If the filling is too thin, you won’t be able to cut slices of pie, if it’s too thick, it can become stiff or gummy in the oven.
With the Holiday Season quickly approaching, I figured it was about time I share my favorite pie recipes.
