Pie and piecrust

Baked products are notorious for containing trans fat, but many major restaurant chains (such as McDonald's and Burger King) have removed hydrogenated oils from their apple pies.

You can still find the trans-fat varieties in your grocery store, however: Many varieties of Marie Callender’s frozen fruit and cream pies have between 2 and 4.5 grams of trans fat per serving.

As for piecrust, Pillsbury Pet-Ritz Frozen Deep Dish All Vegetable piecrust contains 1.5 grams of trans fat per serving. Look for one without hydrogenated oils in the ingredients list.
