It’s that time of year again. It’s time to get our bake on!

Live pie experts can be reached Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET by calling 1-877-FOR-PIE-TIPS (877-367-7438). What’s even better is that during the busy holiday season when pie baking is at its peak, live pie experts are on-call during extended hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET from November 18 – 27, and 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET from December 16 – 23.

The Crisco test kitchens have also come up with a few tasty new recipes for this season I wanted to share with you (available at www.Crisco.com):

  • Caramel Apple Walnut Pie – Leftover apples from the annual trip to the orchard? Update the traditional apple pie recipe with a new twist that incorporates the delicious flavors of fall.
  • Classic Chicken Pot Pie – Nothing says comfort like chicken pot pie, and the addition of the Classic Crisco Pie Crust to this recipe truly makes it a supper superstar.
  • Mini Bacon and Leek Quiche – Warm and savory, these tiny tarts are perfect appetizers for fall gatherings and holiday guests.
  • Savory Pumpkin Parmesan Empanadas – Flavors of thyme, pumpkin and ricotta cheese blend together in this holiday twist on savory hand pies.
