I made Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie for Thanksgiving. It turned out so good! Each kid got their own pie and were in heaven:-)
I usually don’t make pies because I can never roll out the dough! I’m a pie rolling dummy. It gets all sticky and I end up super frustrated. Well, not this year! I came up with an idea and wanted to share my tip. Who knows, this may already be something you do, or some fancy product sold at Williams Sonoma, but to me, it was a new idea:-)
I used Glad Press’n Seal to cover the dough and roll it out. I had some left over from Halloween, which I used to cover tables when the kids painted their pumpkins at my Pumpkin Painting Party. (Love this stuff!)
I added a little flour on both sides of the dough. Rolled it out.
Then turned the pie plate upside down over the dough, flipped it, pulled off the Press’n Seal and voila!
It really was easy as pie! Saved me so much pie rolling frustration. Happy pie making!
