The Perfect Pie on ABC's “The Chew”

Yesterday “The Chew” had a cooking class for viewers to learn the basics about getting around the kitchen. They presented a few simple recipes and a shopping list so everyone could do it themselves at home. Many people feel anxious about trying new recipes in the kitchen. Learning the basics makes people feel more confident. It also keeps them away from prepared foods that contain too many additives and preservatives.

Today the show is serving up a variety of pies. From sweet to savory, fans will learn how to make yummy pies at home. Buying a gourmet pie can cost up to $20 or more. Making your own pies is a money-saving idea that gives you greater control over the ingredients. Facebook fans are looking forward to the show. One commented, “I'll be watching. I make pies a lot and I've tried different crust recipes, with butter, Crisco butter shortening and vegetable oil, ice cold water and salt. I add sugar sometimes but I'm always looking to try a new way or improve on what I already know.”

Pie is a major part of American culture. People refer to being as “American as apple pie.” Certain pies are served on holidays, especially Thanksgiving. This important day would not be the same without pies such as pumpkin pie and mince pie. Chicken pot pie is a favorite dinner that includes tasty gravy and vegetables. “The Chew” is sure to serve an array of interesting pies with easy recipes to make them. HULIQ will return with more later.

ABC's “The Chew” airs on weekdays at 1:00 p.m. ET
