If you're going to make a pie this year, you might as well go all out. Do everything from scratch, including the pie crust, and you'll taste and see the difference.
However, just because you're starting from scratch doesn't mean it has to be difficult. There are so many free streamable and downloadable resources out there to lighten the load. Free doesn't necessarily mean cheap either.
Libbie Summers is a culinary creative whose work has been featured on many notable platforms, including Condé Nast Traveler, Vogue, and Food Network Magazine. She has created the ultimate creative pie crimping video, using everything from forks to pearls.
Even if you don't like being in the kitchen, this video will get you excited about crimping a pie (at the very least).
