I am definitely more of a cake than pie baker. Coming from Germany I only got to know the concept of pie in the last 4 years. But I had my share of attempts with store-bought pie shells and home-made ones; and with uncooked fruit fillings, home-cooked ones, and canned fillings.
While I learned to appreciate the taste of a home-made crust over a bought one, although it is a little more work, but canned fillings are definitely my favorite.
I just can’t seem to get the right filling consistency when making them myself, mainly resulting in oozing fruit liquids or fillings that run out of the shell ones cut.
