Tonight I made a Chicken Pot Pie and used my "pie bird" for the first time. I bought it last year at a craft fair, and put it up in the cupboard and forgot all about it. When I was looking for my Wondra Flour, I saw it and it worked perfect. No leaking on the sides of the pie plate. The steam came out his beak, and bubbled up around him. Twelve and twenty black birds baked in a pie??...... NO just one! HaHaHa.
