Hi everyone!
I am new to this site. My passion is baking pies. I am always looking for the unusual or a new recipe I haven’t tried.
I would love to put in a pie business and have the perfect place and building on our property, but my husband doesn’t share the same enthusiam as I do, so it will have to be put on the back burnner,for now, but I am trying to learn all I can in the meantime.
So…. to my question. The pie championships that are held each year in Celebration, Florida, did anyone see the stenciled pie one contestant did on his top crust. I would be interested to know what he put on it. If it was food coloring or some kind of sugar mixture. I know he put it on before he baked it.

I love to talk pie, so I will be checking back in.

Thanks in advance!

Dear KK who loves pies

Me too. 

The paint for stenciling on pies is egg beaten lightly with food color.  It works beautifully.  Hope it works for you.  I use it a lot.

I don’t think this was used in the Celebration competition, but on a similar note, in the Pie & Pastry Bible (I think the lemon pucker pie), Rose mentions dextrose as a sugar that can be used to decorate the tops of pies, it’s not as sweet as regular sugar and lasts for hours.
