Refreshing a Pie
Here’s a quick little tip to help with big meal preparations during the busy holiday season. Pre-make and bake your fruit pies a day before the big gathering so that when the kitchen is buzzing with all the preparations that inevitably take place for a big meal, you won’t have to worry about making the pies. To get that just baked texture in the crust once again refreshing a pie is all you need to do a few minutes before you wish to serve it.
To refresh a pie, preheat the oven to 325F and then pop it in for 15 to 20 minutes. Even ten minutes will work. While your fruit pie is refreshing, get the ice cream out of the freezer, whip the cream, set out the plates and forks you will be serving onto, and don’t forget the pie server. When the pie is ready, your guests will be, too!
And one of my favorite pies ANY time of the year is blackberry which can be made with either fresh or frozen fruit. Here’s a link to my recipe.
