How to Cut Pie

The Easiest Way to Cut a Perfect Piece of Pie

Do you ever wonder how bakeries and restaurants can slice up such pristine pieces of pie? Since pie filling is often sticky, it can end up clinging to the sharp edge of the knife, making it nearly impossible to cut out anything but crumbling, dilapidated slivers.

To avoid such a mess, start with a sharp chef's knife, and store both the knife and a pie server in boiling water, thoroughly drying them before cutting into the pie. The water will heat the metal, so as you cut, the knife will slightly dissolve the sugars in the pie, making for a clean break.

Try this simple trick: cut two pieces of pie side by side, then use the pie server to scoop out one piece. This allows the slices of pie to be removed more easily. If you're cutting multiple slices, precut the entire pie before using the pie server to scoop the pieces out of the tin.
