Crisco Pie Hotline


Calling all bakers or wanna-be-bakers?  Are you in charge of a pie this Thanksgiving?  Do you have questions?  Bookmark this!

Crisco Pie Hotline is back!

What a wonderful resource for bakers and the hotline provides round the clock assistance for anyone in a pie predicament. :-) I’ve had issues before………one time I didn’t make enough dough for a cobbler apparently.

How about you?

Live Pie Experts:

  • Hours: Live pie experts can be reached Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET
  • Call 1-877-FOR-PIE-TIPS (877-367-7438)

HOLIDAY EXTENDED HOURS: When pie baking is at its peak, live pie experts are on-call during extended hours!

  • Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET from November 18 – 27
  • Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET from December 16 – 23.

The Crisco test kitchens have also come up with a few  new recipes for this season and I’ve picked out two favorites:

  • Caramel Apple Walnut Pie – Leftover apples from the annual trip to the orchard? Update the traditional apple pie recipe with a new twist that incorporates the delicious flavors of fall.
  • Savory Pumpkin Parmesan Empanadas – Flavors of thyme, pumpkin and ricotta cheese blend together in this holiday twist on savory hand pies.

Happy Baking!
