There’s just something special about that perfect smooth-edged slice of pie or piece of cake with crumb-free icing. Those tiny details turn something trivial into something special.
Theoretically it shouldn’t be hard, right? Achieving a smooth slice of pie. But we’ve all experienced that horrible half-minute when you’re trying to dish up a piece of pumpkin or pecan and you can tell--before the piece even leaves the tray--that it’s just not going to go well. Instead of a picture-worthy slice, what ends up on the plate is a lifeless lump. It will still taste good, but there’s something a little lackluster about that first forkful.
Struggle no more! With this easy trick, you can make picture-worthy slices of pie your holiday signature. To dish up a whole pie perfectly, all you need to do is make that first piece cut a half-inch sliver instead of a normal slice. Gently remove it with a fork. If you like, you can immediately devour the evidence. Then proceed to cut your pie as usual. That extra half-inch gives you enough room to maneuver the remaining pieces and remove them mess-free.
And, voila! Pumpkin pie perfection in two seconds flat.
