What would you do with your pie in order to retain its juiciness?
You can simply do it in a large bowl or put the fruit in a strainer over a bowl to catch the liquid as it thaws. If you don’t have overnight, you can always thaw it at room temperature in a single layer on a baking sheet instead.
Do you blind bake double crust pies?
Whenever I make a double crust pie I start out using all of the same techniques I used for a single crust pie. I even partially bake (blind bake) the bottom crust until it is almost done, but not completely. Once the bottom crust comes out of the oven you want to let it cool completely while making the pie filling.
To create a good seal between the top and bottom crust of a double crust pie, moisten the edge of the bottom crust with water before placing the top crust on the pie. This will help create a good seal when the two crusts are crimped together.
