comment When is it necessary to put foil over a pie's crust?
Sometimes the crust around the edge cooks faster since there is only pie tin below it. This may vary based on the tin you use and how you shape your crust. So the answer to your question is, "it depends."

comment How to make smooth ice cream flavored with fresh fruit?
When you say smooth ice cream, do you mean that you don't want chunks of fruit? That is, you want to just extract the flavor from the fruit?

I'm guessing that aluminum foil would have a very different "heating profile" (I'm not sure that's a real term) than parchment paper and probably wouldn't make a good substitute.

I wonder if the honey in a commercial product is processed to remove any botulism toxin. Maybe somebody from Nabisco will chime in, I don't see anything on their web site.
