I’m not here to fuel the debate over what’s the superior dessert, cakes or pies, but let’s just say that pies have taken the lead in my books now that I can whip up a batch in just 8 minutes from the comfort of my office chair. Of course I’m sure the lameo instructions for this Personal Pie Maker will caution against using it anywhere except the kitchen, but that isn’t going to stop me!
It includes a pastry cutter for making the perfect sized pieces of dough to fit the 4-inch molds, and when you close the lid the edges of the pies are automatically crimped and sealed for you. No baking experience required! Their compact size also means the pies can be eaten by hand saving you the mess of having to juggle a plate and fork while trying to fill out your expense report. Available exclusively from Williams-Sonoma for $79.95.
