Baking Tips

From our kitchen to yours. Here’s a few of our favorite baking tips.

Apple Pie
  • When baking an apple pie, one of the big problems is burnt edges of the crust. To prevent this problem cover the edges of your pie with tin foil. But don't scrunch it down around the sides. Because the foil reflects the heat, the pastry edges may end up under baked.
  • Make a mountain in the pie shell when you add the apple filling. Stretch the top pie crust over the mountain of apple filling as best you can. You will find while the pie bakes the apple mountain will deflate, resulting in the perfect amount of apple mixture in every slice.
  • If you want more sweetness but do not want to add sugar, try 1tbsp lemon juice, some finely grated lemon zest, and 2 tbsp apple sauce.
