Thanksgiving Kitchen Tip: Pies
We had Thanksgiving early in our home because we are celebrating with family on the actual day. If I had started a few hours earlier, dinner would have been timed perfectly.
I have 2 tips regarding pies for you.
1 – Use the Pillsbury refrigerated pie dough – it’s easy to use and AMAZING! I simply rolled it out on the pie plate, used the flute tool to make scallopped edges, and poured in the pumpkin pie batter. However, be sure to refrigerate the pies or they will mold within 2 days (like mine did). I was completely bummed because it takes some work to put together a pumpkin pie. I only enjoyed one slice – boo hoo! I want pumpkin pie!
2 – Make the pies the day before. I don’t have a double oven, so I have to be sure to time my cooking very carefully. I made the pies the day before Thanksgiving. That was one less thing I didn’t have to worry about.
3 – Serve your pies with whipped cream on top or ice cream on the side. You can serve the pies warm or cold (I personally think cold is the best).
4 – Eat as much pie as you want. It’s Thanksgiving after all!!!
