When I was about 9 years old, I used to call the 1-800 numbers listed on the back of baking products and ask if they had coupons or recipe booklets they could mail me. Being a mini chef in training, I enjoyed getting new recipes and had fun talking about the ins and outs of baking on my huge landline phone. Oh, the simple childhood pleasures of the ’90s. 😉 Anyway, 9-year-old me would have been super pumped about Criscos’s Pie & Baking hotline!
Formerly just the Pie Hotline, this year Crisco has expanded their helpline to cover all manner of holiday baked goodness. If you’re in the middle of a baking mishap, who ya gonna call? Crisco Pie & Baking Hotline! Maybe Aunt Marlene’s famous pie crust recipe isn’t working for you, your sugar cookies won’t roll out, or your fruitcake is falling apart? Crisco is here to help! Just dial 1-877-367-7438 from Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 AM to 7 PM, Eastern Standard Time, and you’ll be connected to baking experts who can provide tips and help troubleshoot your baking woes.
