I've C&P'd a 6 page word document just from this thread.

Was wondering, did the pie maker ever get its own forum?
It's official..." Were a Pie Cult " Welcome Kristelrobin :)

Now we qualify for the super discount on any make, model, and color of our Mother ship. Yesssssss!!!!

I've asked before about a Sub form, ummm no word back on that one. Yet..
I'm willing to sign a lease for one. Anyone else?

Is it just me or is anyone not missing lining muffin pans?
Made some awesome corn and blueberry muffins this week. You couldn't tell by them, that they were actually made in less time then the oven.. Same results. No cleanup..

Munky.

The Pie Makers are completely different. It's a specific appliance- cookware That's why I started the thread here. It's my own opinion here, that the Pie Makers are too versatile as a unit to be put with desserts.
Look at us were just terrible, making up our own recipes. Using this fun gadget like it's a toy, a fun one at that.

If it has to be kept as a thread, I'm alright with that. But for those that are now just receiving them, it's 23 pages of reading and looking for recipes-tips- pics, that just might put them off from participating. They Google and find all kinds of information right here at DC.

The Dehydrating sub gets less traffic than this thread.

I'm just sayin'..

Munky.

Hi! I was looking for recipes for my pie maker and found this site. I'm so excited! The recipes are great. I don't have a Breville, I have one from Macy's that I got for 29.00 and LOVE IT! Keep the recipes coming! I've only made a chicken pot pie so far and that convinced my fiancee it was a keeper appliance. I'm going to try to make the chocolate pudding pie recipe I saw on here - my dad is addicted to pudding pie.

I do have few questions. I want to make a few pies to freeze. Has anyone done that before? If so can you reheat in the microwave? My fiancee isn't the best in the kitchen and the microwave is the only thing I can trust him using!

Also, has anyone purchased the book from W/S? Any good recipes in it? I'm more of a savory girl.

Thanks so much and sorry for the babbling!

Kat
PS - I second the pie maker thread!

Like most bread products, flour (pie crusts) don't do very well in the microwave. It goes through a special process when large commercial companies make pies to be frozen and then baked in a micro. I would suggest that you teach him how to use the oven on the stove for any pie products.

I've been able to actually get the chance to freeze the pies. Wised up and made them when nobody else was home.

They were wrapped in aluminum foil. Marked and dated each one.

Addie's right they don't reheat well in the microwave. The pie crusts get soggy.
Pizza doughs get too tough.

They do reheat well when placed unwrapped on a cookie sheet and put in a 350 degree oven. Give it about 30 minutes. You could always do the toothpick in the center and feel if it's hot enough.

The pie maker itself also does a great job of reheating the pies. They need to be defrosted in the fridge. Preheat the pie maker. Put the pies in, unwrapped give it about 10-15 minutes to reheat.

Last time I made some pies ahead of time, I didn't fully cook them. Just long enough for whatever I was making to start browning. Keep it's shape without falling apart.

Took them out, then wrapped them in foil. It was much easier, that way when I did use the pie maker for reheating it avoided over browning and possibly burning the pies.

If I don't own the appliance, but read this thread religiously, can I be a member of this righteous cult?
