How do you bake a pie shell so it doesn’t shrink?
To avoid shrinking crusts, use a metal or unglazed ceramic pie plate (available from The Pampered Chef) and blind bake the dough at 350°F. If you only have glass pie plates, you can still blind bake the crust. Just be sure to trim the dough a tad beyond the rim of the pie pan, perhaps 1/8 inch.
How do you dock a one crust pie?
To “dock” a pastry means to prick a pie crust with a fork before baking. This technique is a simple way to poke holes in the pastry dough. This allows the steam to escape so that the pie crust doesn’t puff up in the oven. Usually, this technique is used when blind baking a pie crust before filling.
What is the difference between a pie shell and a single pie crust?
A single Crust Pie is a pie that does not have a top Crust. It only has the bottom Crust that lines the pie plate and holds the filling. The bottom Crust is placed in the pie plate and the edges are trimmed. A double Crust is used to make pies having both a bottom and a top Crust.
Bake on a Hot Baking Sheet Place a baking sheet in the oven as it heats, then place your pie dish directly on that hot baking sheet — this little extra boost of heat will do wonders in terms of getting the crust to cook and set quickly.
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.
But the one surefire way to make absolutely certain your pie’s crust will be golden brown, crisp, and delicious — just as appealing as its filling — is to prebake it. That’s right: bake the bottom crust first, before adding the filling.
Do you Prebake crust for pumpkin pie?
Do I need to pre bake the crust for a pumpkin pie? There is no need to pre-bake a pie crust for pumpkin pie. Make your favorite pie crust and place it in the pan unbaked (or buy refrigerated pie dough if you’d like a shortcut). The crust will bake beautifully along with the pie.
How do I know when my pie crust is done?
Tip: What’s the best way to tell if your pie is done? For fruit pie, the top crust will be golden brown, and you’ll be able to see filling bubbling around the edges and/or through the vents. For best results, let the filling bubble for at least 5 minutes before removing the pie from the oven.
Do you poke holes in apple pie crust?
Poke holes in the bottom of crust prior to baking. This baking time is just for the crust, not a filled pie. However, the crust can be used for a filled by, the baking time will vary for each recipe. For a filled pie, do not poke holes in the crust.
What does adding egg to pie crust do?
Egg: This makes the dough more pliable and easy to roll out. Eggs also make the crust more compact. Acid and Alcohol: Both acid and alcohol tenderize pie dough, make it easier to roll out, and prevent it from shrinking in your pan.
What is it called when you poke holes in a pie crust?
Dear Edna: Docking is a term that simply means poking holes in the dough so that it does not puff up during baking. Crackers and flatbreads, unbaked pie shells and the like are docked so as steam builds up during baking, it has a means of escape, rather than causing the dough to rise.

What would happen to a flaky pie dough if you mixed it too long before adding the water?
After adding the water? If you mix the flaky dough too long before adding water, you will end up with a mealy dough instead. the fat will melt and there will be no flakes. If you mix it too long after adding water, you will end up with a tough dough due to gluten development.
Let any fillings cool completely before adding them to the pastry case. To prevent a wet filling from making the pastry base soggy, preheat a baking tray and cook the pie on that – the extra heat will set the pastry faster.
