Tips for making

  1. Start with a great crust recipe. My favorites are those that use butter or a combination of butter and lard. There’s just something about that flaky crust that makes all the difference.
  2. Don’t overfill your pie crust. You don’t want it to be so complete that the filling squishes out when you bake it, and you also don’t want it to be too thin and crispy. Somewhere in between is perfect.
  3. Use your favorite fillings! Just make sure they’re cooked before you put them in the crust. I love savory pies with chicken or beef filling, but feel free to experiment with different fruits or vegetables for the filling.

I hope these tips help you make the perfect non-fruit pie! Happy baking!
