Subject: Pie Crust question ...
Forum: Cooking & Preserving Foods
Am hoping someone can give me an answer, or suggestion as to how to PREVENT a pie crust from shrinking.
I make my own crusts EXCEPT when I am making a pie that requires a PRE cooked crust .. I usually then buy one , but don't want to.
Problem is .. when I line the pie plate with the UNCOOKED pie crust .. pop it in the oven to cook it .. usually 350 for 10 to 15 minutes .. when I take it out it has SHRUNK up and no longer fits the pie plate :-(
I sorta remember my Mom doing ?something? to prevent this shrinkage .. but am darned if I can remember what it was!
Hope someone has an answer :o)
