How to Cut a Nut Pie
Helpful tips from Tippin’s for cutting the perfect slice of nut pie, such as Pecan, Dixie etc.
1) Place pie in the freezer 1 to 2 hours before cutting. Pie should be firm and well chilled. It can be frozen.
2) Hold the bottom of the pie in one hand. Place a cutting board on top of the pie and hold over the pie with your other hand. Flip so the pie is turned upside down on the cutting board. Gently remove the pie tin.
3) Use a long serrated knife to score the crust. Saw gently to cut through the crust and into the filling, but not all the way through the pie.
4) Tilt the serrated knife to cut through the crust at the edge of the pie. Then cut through the other edge.
5) Once you have mostly cut through the pie, press the serrated knife into the scored line and press down with both hands to cut through the nuts.
6) Repeat two more times to cut the pie into six slices. You’ll want to shape the pie back together as you go.
7) Put the tin back on the bottom of the pie and hold with one hand. Pick up the cutting board with your other hand and flip over.
8) When done correctly, the nuts on top of the pie may not appear to be cut until you use the pie server to remove the first piece.
9) Let the pie thaw to room temperature. Serve and enjoy!
