How to make the pie boxes
If you love making pies, you’re going to love these easy homemade pie boxes! These boxes are the perfect way to transport your pies without having to worry about them falling apart. You can make as many or as few boxes as you need, and they are super easy to do.
To make your pie boxes, you’ll first need some supplies. You will need a piece of cardboard that is at least 12 inches wide by 18 inches long, a ruler or measuring tape, adhesive dots, fabric glue, and a sewing needle.
To create the pie box lid, start by cutting the cardboard into a square that is 9 inches on each side. Then, trace around the edge of the square with your ruler or measuring tape. Next, use the adhesive dots to secure the corners of the lid to the bottom of the cardboard square. Make sure that the edges of the lid are even with the edges of the square so that it forms a perfect seal.
Now it’s time to create your pie box body. To do this, start by cutting a piece of fabric 8½ inches wide by 12 inches long. Then, fold them in half so that each end has an 8-inch length, and sew them together along one side (you will now have a 16-inch-long piece of fabric). Next, unfold the fabric and measure out 1 inch from one end and 1 inch from each corner…this will be where you will sew your pie box sides onto your
Tips for using your pie box
Your pie box is one of the most important pieces of kitchen equipment you will ever own. It not only helps you make amazing pies, but it also keeps your pies safe while they’re in the oven. Here are a few tips for using your pie box:
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees before filling your pie box. This will help ensure that your pie cooks evenly and doesn’t come out too dry or burnt on the outside.
2. Use a pastry brush to brush some egg white onto the top of each crust before placing them in the pie box. This will ensure that the crusts don’t puff up and become tough when baked.
3. Pour any liquids or fruit filling into the pie box last so it doesn’t get absorbed by the crusts and end up being too wet or pulpy.
4. Don’t overfill your custom boxes — an overfilled pie can cook unevenly and be difficult to slice once it’s out of the oven. Plus, if your pies start to overflow, they can easily become ruined beyond repair!
5. Bake your pies for 16-20 minutes, depending on their size and thickness. Be sure to check them for 15 minutes so that you don’t overcook them on the inside (which could result in mushy fruit).
