A lab experience preparing a pie shell and either a lemon meringue pie or a cream pie as a unit.
Ingredients needed for lab:
If the students prefer to use whipping cream, I plan on 1 pint for three units giving each group about 2/3 cup.
The egg whites, I put in a separate container if unused.
The teacher needs to know the techniques in preparing a pie shell, lemon or cream filling and meringue or whipping cream to top the pie.
The student needs to know how to prepare a pie shell, either a lemon or cream filling, and assemble it together and top it with either a meringue or whipping cream.
The students will practice the techniques in preparing a pie shell using the basic ingredients, a lemon or cream filling and top it with a meringue or whipped cream.
Hand out the lab planning sheets to the individual groups. Students will prepare either lemon meringue pie or a cream pie depending on what they planned the time before on their lab sheet.
Review the recipes again. The students will need to prepare their pie shell and get it in the oven as soon as possible so it can cool before adding the filling especially for the cream pies. The lemon pie doesn't really matter, but it will be hot and runny if not allowed to cool slightly.
The students will need to set their tables and eat their whole pies. They may want to share between the different units the different kinds.
Hand out the Pie Unscramble to be worked on as a filler if there is extra time during the lab. Allow the students enough time to prepare their pie, eat, evaluate and clean up before the end of class. The teacher can walk around the lab to help, assist and answer questions as needed.
