Will pot pie thicken in oven?
Because the dough rests on top and doesn’t cover the contents completely, as the pie bakes, the heat of the oven causes some evaporation and concentration of the filling. This will keep the filling on the thicker side, depending on the oven temperature, and the length of cooking time.
Pricking holes in the rolled-out pie dough allows the steam to escape while it’s baking. Do this whenever you need to fully or partially bake the crust before adding the filling.
