I bought myself a present and it is pie related.

I've been making a lot of pies lately and sometimes the edges of the crust will brown way faster than the pie cooks, so you have to cover them in foil to keep them from burning. I quickly realized that using foil to do this is really finicky, and also kinda burny, as I'm usually wrapping the edges while the pie plate is already hot.

This novice pie maker did some Googling and learned that they have a thing for that: pie crust shield! The one I got is silicone, adjustable to multiple sizes of pie, and the reviews on Amazon were pretty good so I went for it. I figure if I'm in my pie making years, this new toy is going to get a lot of use over the next while.

Now I have a great excuse to make a pie!
