What to Do About … A Soggy Pie Crust

If you are plagued by a soggy crust each time you make a pie, try these helpful tips:

– Sprinkle crust with powdered sugar before filling

– Bake crust at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes prior to filling (especially if using a cream-style pie that does not cook long)

– Chill all ingredients before mixing and placing in crust

– Chill pie crust dough before rolling out and filling

– Do not overbake pie – overbaking causes excess moisture to be squeezed from the filling, resulting in a soggy crust
