He's a crust fan, and I think that I have turned him into a pie crust snob! There was a day when he wouldn't have known the difference, I don't think that anyone ever made him homemade crust.
...nothing wrong with being a pie crust snob--we know and love our 'real pie crusts' don't we?

There are some titles I carry with pride. A cook from scratch, label reader, food snob, along with prude.

I'm finally joining the party! I purchased the Wolfgang Puck pie maker after seeing all they did with it on HSN last week. I chose this one because (a) it only makes 2 at a time and (b) it makes super extra deep pies (about 3 inches deep). Reviews are mixed, but I hope it holds up as long as my attention span. :)

I'm vegetarian, so I look forward to adapting some of the recipes you all have shared, as well as coming up with some new ones!

Has anyone made fruit pies using stevia as the sweetener instead of sugar? I'd love to see some recipes for that. Also, if you use frozen berries, do you have to defrost them first (I know you have to cook apples in advance, but wasn't sure about berries).

Also, I'm wondering about using pasta as a crust ... such as lasagna noodles criss-crossed in the pie form to make little bundles of lasagna. I'd think it would work similar to the egg roll wrappers.

I'm glad I found you guys and all your great tips and recipes! Keep'em coming!

Hello Carrie,

Welcome to the Cult. Best one you're going to find around :)

I believe someone has made desserts using Stevia. We have 3 separate sections for the pie maker. We got a little too big for our britches. Ummmm when were bein' bad, we think it's even better. Check the dessert section.

Frozen anything can't be used in the pie maker. Canned is fine, but it has to be defrosted used at room temp. Not doing that the pies will cook unevenly.

As far as Lasagna's go. As I just found out, you probably already have to.
Don't do what I did... Live and learn. Cook the pasta first.

Were glad you found us. Looking forward to seeing your recipes and pics in the future..

Munky.

Here's a link to a bunch of bisquick pie recipes .. they are called "Impossibly Easy", which has my attention.

The mini ones are designed to cook in muffin tins, and the others are designed for a pie plate. I don't see why they wouldn't work just as well in our pie makers with some time adjustments!

Instead of using a crust/top separately, the bisquick mixes right in with the other ingredients to make sort of a meal-muffin.

P.S. I noticed some mentions on this board to gluten free recipes, apparently Bisquick has GF variety and some of the recipes on this site cater to GF, too!

Well, it didn't take long. But I still prefer to PS's parchment paper idea.

Shop Silicone Pot Pie Shield, Set of 4 at CHEFS.

Hi Addie, just wondering if you have used the silicon pie shields in the pie maker? How did it work?
My concern is that they may not allow the pie maker to close completely?
Thanks. maLoney
