What does your pie look like before we take a slice?
AFTER SLICE APPEARANCE
Not too runny or dry, appropriate juiciness, firmness, color, visual appeal.
TEXTURE AND TASTE
Mouth feel: Appropriate consistency (i.e. thick, thin, smooth, chunky, creamy, chalky, mushy, runny, dry)
Crust: Texture, flaky, firm, mealy, soggy, under-baked over-baked, tasty flavor. Does it complement the filling?
We like creative baking but keep in mind that a perfectly executed traditional favorite can be a work of art too!
