I love to cook and bake. I have for years but of all the things I've made, I've never made a pie. Not a apple pie, not a no-bake pie, nothing. This was about to change.
I picked up a Aqua/Turquoise pie plate on ebay and made my very first pie ever. I didn't cheat with the crust either. All homemade.
The crust turned out beautifully, not too flaky, not to hard. The pie was chocolate pecan pie and baked up large and formed a crust (I think I used too much filling). Despite that it is/was delicious. I can now add pie maker to my resume.
It kinda bums me out when I read that some people just collect Pyrex and don't use it. This stuff was meant to be used! It totally makes food taste better. Don't let your pieces collect dust. Cook baby, cook!
