by Jolene Philo & Anne Fleck | Home Again

As promised, Jolene and Anne are sharing their favorite essential and ancient pie-making tools. First up, the drip pan that catches boil overs and allows air to circulate so the bottom crust gets done.

Next up, Anne’s favorite rolling pin followed by Jolene’s fave. You can see Anne’s rolling pin in action in our How to Make Pie Crust video on Facebook.
