Pretty Pie Crust: Emile Henry Artisan Ruffled Pie Dish

This time of year, our thoughts invariably turn to pie. Yes, pie is traditionally a summer thing, with all those berries, apples, and pears coming into season. But we jump into pies as soon as rhubarb hits the markets, and there's something about a pie cooling on the windowsill in the fresh, new spring sunshine. (We've made three pies already this spring!) And if you're making pies, then you want a pretty crust. That's where this gorgeous pie pan from Emile Henry comes in.

We think this pie dish is just gorgeous. It's dramatic and ruffled in just such a way as to make a pie crust effortlessly beautiful. A pie dish like this is a novice pie baker's best friend.

Yes, some of us don't care about a pie's looks at all, as long as it tastes good. But we love to crimp our pie crusts into a crisp shape, especially since it's spring and the sun is shining, and everything feels like it should be gleaming and pretty. So we're all gaga over this pie dish right now; can't you picture a lovely Shaker lemon pie bubbling away inside?
