PIE RECIPE HELP I solved the problem with most soggy chicken pot pies – I have you to prebake the bottom crust before filling it with my rich and flavorful chicken and veggie packed filling so the bottom crust won’t get soggy, and then have you bake it again with a top crust until golden brown!
Do you thaw Pillsbury pie crust before baking?
Step 1: Soften the Crust Let refrigerated crusts stand at room temperature for 15 minutes, or microwave one pouch on DEFROST (30% power) for 10 to 20 seconds before unfolding.

Is puff pastry different than pie crust?
When puff pastry is baked, the layers begin to separate and “puff”. The remaining tiny pieces of butter help to make a pie crust flaky when cooked, but the resulting pie crust is much thicker and sturdier than a puff pastry. Pie crusts provide a more solid bite and thus foundation to hold pie fillings.

How can I make Pillsbury pie crust better?
Feel free to add a bit of spice according to what kind of pie you’re making to bump up the flavor even more. Brushing a bit of melted butter on the rolled crusts can give a nice richness if that’s what you’re after. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the cookies and the sugar and cinnamon, if using.
Some recipes suggest you poke holes in the crust to stop it from puffing up. The danger with this is the liquid from your filling can seep down into these holes, making the base soggy. Opt for blind-baking and press the beans down firmly to stop your crust from puffing up.
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.
The gluten in the flour gives pastry its texture, while fat offers flavour. If the fat melts before a strong gluten structure has formed, the pastry will end up soggy. Overly moist fillings can also contribute to a soggy bottom as the liquid will drop to the bottom of the pie and ooze into the pastry.
