  • Facts on Cream Pie:

    A cream pie is a kind of pie packed with a rich custard or pudding that is made from milk, cream, flour, and eggs. It can come in various forms, including vanilla, lemon, lime, peanut butter, banana, coconut, and chocolate.

    A common feature of all cream pies is the whipped cream topping. The custard filling is related to the French crème patissière which is a key component of various French cakes and tarts. It is a one-crust pie.

    Pie Baking Tips:

    Wear an Apron. It is a must to wear an apron while cooking especially when you’re baking particularly with pies, where you have flour, fruit juices, etc. it’s smart to protect your clothes. Plus it makes you look more professional.

    Wash Your Hands. This may seem observable, but many people don’t consider doing it. Remember you are handling food, and you need your hands to be clean. If the recipe involves using raw eggs, be sure to wash your hands again after handling them.

    Read the Whole Recipe First. It is important to read the whole recipe first before doing the first step of baking. Read the whole recipe to make sure that you have the time, the ingredients, and the enthusiasm for this particular pie.

    Organize Your Ingredients and Tools. It is important that before you start, you must get out all the ingredients and implements you’re going to need and have them close at hand. Do any preparation that’s needed (sifting, grating, squeezing, separating).

    Don’t be Afraid to Experiment. Pies are quite forgiving. If you are making a mixed fruit pie like the blueberry and cranberry feel free to change the proportions of fruit. If your taste buds say you like a pie sweeter than the recipe, add a bit more sugar. It’s difficult to mess up with good ingredients, so play around.

    Have Fun with Leftover Pie Crust. Sometimes you end up with little bits of leftover pie crust. Instead of discarding your leftover pie crust, you can freeze them for later, or you can have some fun.

    For the leftover pie crust, you can just mix a small amount of sugar and flour with some cut up fruit and bake. Or you can also fill crust with applesauce or jam. Mini pies are cute and tasty and make a nice little treat.

    If you don’t have enough leftovers or don’t feel like rolling crust again, you can just use your hands to shape some dough into a circle with a small lip and fill the center with jam.
