It happens every time: You spend hours making a homemade pie. (Fine, you spent minutes picking one up at the bakery.) But when you try to cut the first slice and pry it out of the pie plate, the whole thing crumbles into a terrible mangled mess.

We’ve got a hack for that.

Step 1: Cut a teeny half-inch sliver of pie and remove it with a fork.

Step 2: Eat said mini-slice and enjoy the fruits of your (or the bakery’s) labor.

Step 3: Then cut the pie as usual and serve, clean as a whistle.

Why it works: The extra room in the plate will allow you to remove the larger slices with ease. And help get you thismuchcloser to being Martha.
