Default Re: Baking Tips

It is always best to sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices to filter out any lumps that might be in them.

It is possible to over mix your batter. Over-beating eggs whips too much air into the mixture and creates tunnels in the baked treats.

If you're in a real hurry when you're making pie crust, pour yourself a glass of ice water. Literally! Measure the ice water and you'll still get flaky piecrust.

Lightbulb Another way to check for doneness!

If you don't have any toothpicks handy, no need to panic! Use a piece of uncooked spaghetti as your "toothpick". Works exactly the same way!

Cool Real Men and Women Cook Quiche...without a Mess!

If you're making custard or any kind of custard-based pie (quiche, pumpkin, etc.), pour the filling into the unbaked pie shell after putting the shell on your oven rack. (To reduce additional spillage, set the pie pan on a cookie sheet before putting it in the oven!)
