Pie

A slice of pie is comfort food to many people. Just warm from the oven, the pie drips with the flavor of fruit, nut, pumpkin spice, or custard. It leaves in oneself a memory of a good place, like a grandmother’s kitchen or the family gathered around the dinner table. Pie making demonstrates the skill of the baker in handling two components of the pie—pastry and filling.

Crust is the foundation of a good pie, perfectly flaky and deliciously shatters when you slice into it. Some classic pie crust recipes combine cold chunks of butter and vegetable shortening to produce that requisite flakiness. Others rely on good old lard or an all-butter crust called pâte brisée while the wiser home bakers prefer the easy convenience of an oil crust.

The fat is rubbed into the flour using a pastry cutter, two table knives held like a pair of scissors, or the food processor. When the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal, a few tablespoons of cold water is added after which the dough is shaped into a round disc and rolled into a sheet of pastry. It is then transferred into a pie plate and pre-baked or filled, depending on one’s recipe.

The pie filling may be pre-cooked or mixed in a separate bowl before pouring into the crust. Different kinds of pies in the collection of recipes below require a variety of fillings. The most common is the fruit pie, assembled from the bounty of the summer harvest, such as apple, apricot, cherry, cranberry, berries or lemon. The classic apple pie is an international favorite. It’s British in origin but adapted as an American culinary icon. Nut pies like pecan, peanut, macadamia, and walnut also make great pie fillings. Chocolate creates a different kind of pie experience whether in mud pies or chocolate custard.
