This idea comes from our friend Ashley Poskin. "The only possible equivalent to a beloved family recipe is opening your recipe box and seeing that beloved recipe in your grandmother's handwriting," she says. "The lines and curves of her penmanship are so familiar, it's almost like hearing her voice. In the days of online pinboards and digital everything, it's more important than ever to preserve the beauty of a handwritten recipe and display it proudly as art where it can be seen all the time."
Before you start, wipe down the inside of your pie plate with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner to prepare it for painting. It's important to note that some glass paint pens are not recommended for direct contact with food.
