Amish double pie carrier

It’s fruit pie season, and enthusiastic bakers are trying to figure out how to transport just-made apricot, strawberry, peach, cherry, blueberry – well, all kinds of pies – to that potluck or picnic or Shakespeare-in-the-park supper. If you make teeny-weeny pies in disposable pans, try a bamboo steamer like you’d use for steaming dumplings. Works fine. But if you make 9-inch double-crust beauties, nothing but an Amish double pie carrier basket will get ’em there in style.

Check it out: There’s a three-legged platform that fits over one pie so that you can set another on top – like a parking garage for baked goods. Order now and you’ll be prepared not only for summer fruit season but apple harvest time and beyond. The Amish Wares site also has a triple pie carrier (!!), a square pie carrier, a rectangular pie carrier (I’d call it a cobbler carrier myself), cake carriers and some nifty picnic baskets.
