Good things come in small packages, and pie is no exception. To close out the Year of the Pie with a bang, Tenderflake introduces Easy Pie!™, your new secret weapon for creating the perfect-sized desserts in no time flat.
Just the right size for a couple or a small family, Easy Pie!™ features a 6-inch pie shell, perfect for 2 to 4 servings. Available in two varieties - Double Crust or Crumble Topping - each kit contains the components to bake a delicious pie, including the spice mix. Just add your favourite fresh fruit and you are 30 minutes away from a freshly baked pie, perfect for any day of the week.
To make baking pie even easier, John Placko, Executive Chef of the Maple Leaf Foods ThinkFOOD! Centre, offers some tips to keep in mind when selecting your pie content of choice.
“The key to perfect apple pie,” Placko explains, “is choosing apples that retain their shape when baking. Granny Smith and Northern Spy apples will stay intact while giving your pie a tart, tangy flavour, whereas Golden Delicious and Fuji apples offer sweetness while maintaining their shape. Try combining both if you’re looking for a flavour contrast.”
Other fruit pie classics include blueberry, cherry and peach, but blending various fruits together is never a bad idea. Get creative using raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb and even pineapple pieces. While using fresh seasonal fruit is encouraged, frozen fruit works too. Easy Pie!™ makes it fun and simple to try out as many combinations as your heart - and taste buds - desire!
