Expert Tips

  • Pie baking can be even easier when you use Pet-Ritz® frozen pie crusts. Find them in the freezer case with a precrimped edge, ready to use. The disposable pan makes clean up a snap.
  • Swap some or all of the strawberries on top with fresh blueberries, fresh raspberries or a combination.
  • Swap the melted semisweet chocolate chips for melted white chocolate chips to drizzle on top, if desired.
  • Don’t have almond extract on hand? Use vanilla extract in the filling instead.
