These recipes are great and I'm sure will really make some wonderful pies,
Are they ever going to be spoiled. I'm wishing you all the luck now. Once they find out you will never get any rest.
It's a heavy unit Kades.They mean it when they say it's sturdy. Just so you know, maybe I shouldn't say anything. You probably already know. The pie maker gets extremely hot. Top and bottom. I've burned my hand a few times on it. Young kids need to mind Ma, don't touch!
I quit using that plastic push contraption. It was taking too long to press the bottom crusts in. Centering it just right.Hoping it wouldn't stick. Now since the dough is already at room temp and manageable. The units preheated. I just put it on and quickly press it down to form. Fill and top it off.
Sugar glazes, for fruit pies ( at least mine anyways ) brushed on before the lid is closed burns the top. The crusts get hard as a rock. I chipped a toof on one. Not cool at all.
Brushing it on afterwards has better results.
