tips for this pie

One tip for this pie is DON’T overcook. If you take the pie out of the oven after 1 hour and it is still jiggly in the center, that’s ok. Every time, I have left it longer, it seems overcooked.

Also, if it seems to start getting too brown on the top before the baking time is up, I just lay a piece of foil over the top. This way, the pie continues to cook, but the top won’t get too brown.

My favorite way to serve this pie, is warm and with strawberries on top. I just slice up the pie, plate it, and add a few sliced strawberries right before you serve it.

I like to display the pie on a plain white pedestal cakestand for a simple but pretty presentation.

It truly is delicious, and your guests will think you have slaved all day making this pie!

Ssshh, I won’t tell, if you don’t!!

And by the way, this pie would be perfect for a Valentine’s dessert, which is right around the corner!

happy baking,

Pin it to remember it…..
