The holidays are quickly approaching, which means it is time to start planning your dinner menus and desserts for all the family gatherings, church functions, and other events that will be taking place. Even the most detailed planning doesn’t always prepare you for baking “emergencies.” Did you run out of eggs or butter? Is your pie cooking unevenly? Did you forget to adjust for high altitude? Don’t fret! The Crisco® Pie & Baking Hotline is back to help home bakers master their desserts and restore baking confidence everywhere. Now in its ninth year, the Crisco Pie & Baking Hotline is expanding its repertoire to include all baking categories and ensure no cake, cookie or pie gets left behind.

From how to keep meringues from weeping to salvaging epic cookie fails – live baking experts can be reached year-round Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET by calling 1-877-367-7438.
