For this week’s Trendy Kitchen post, I have come up with my top 10 pie baking essentials for your kitchen. Fall is quickly approaching, which to me means, “pie season!” Every Fall my grandma, mom and I bake many pies – apple, pumpkin, pecan… You name it! The season just wouldn’t be complete without them. During the Summer, I also love baking cherry pies with fresh cherries. The Summer season isn’t over yet, so a cherry pitter might still be handy if you don’t own one yet.
I hope you find some of these items useful for your pie baking adventures!
a. Me, Myself, and Pie cookbook – A great cookbook to get you started! This 5-star reviewed pie cookbook is filled with classic recipes, like apple and pecan pie, plus more than 100 pie recipes. Inside you will find recipes for sweet and savory pies, fruit, cream and meringue pies and more.
