Intended Learning Outcomes:
Hand out to the students the Home Assignment to prepare a Pie of their choice at home. It will be due the day of the test. (Because I require the students to bring to class a pie plate and fruit to thicken when we prepare an individualized double crusted pie in class, I make the Home Assignment for Pies as extra credit or optional) They can prepare their pie with any type of crust.
Demonstrate for the students while they are taking notes on their pie study sheet the correct way to prepare a pie shell. Go over the Secrets to Successful Pastries. Identify the differences between a pie shell, single crusted pie and double crusted pie. The functions of the ingredients in a standard pie crust. While the pie shell is baking, demonstrate how to prepare a lemon filling and explain how to prepare a cream filling - chocolate, banana, coconut, and butterscotch. Demonstrate how to prepare a meringue and whipping cream. Assemble the pie and let cool.
Have the students plan and identify which type of pie as a unit they would like to prepare for next class with the topping. Complete lab planning sheet. Let the students sample the pie demonstrated in class. Clean up while they are planning lab.
