Two Perfect Pies
Season 3, Ep. 301
We update a classic recipe for Shaker Lemon Pie, then demonstrate how to make Icebox Strawberry Pie with real strawberries. Next, Adam Ried reviews pie plates, and Jack Bishop reveals the winners of our strawberry yogurt tasting.
This simple recipe mixes lemon slices, sugar, and eggs to form a custardy filling. But unless you macerate the lemon slices for 24 hours, the pie turns out bitter. Could we speed up this recipe for modern times?
The tried and true versus the newfangled: Have manufacturers improved on your grandma’s pie plate?
Diner-style strawberry pies always look inviting, but these no-bake desserts often taste more like plastic than pie. We wondered if better ingredients could deliver a pie that lived up to its looks.
What’s the key to great strawberry yogurt? Surprise—strawberries!
