How do you bake a pie in a glass dish?
Pyrex glass pie plates are the best choice for baking your pies, as this type of pie pan conducts heat evenly, which allows the bottom crust of the pie to bake thoroughly. Also you can see when the bottom crust of your pie is browned. If using a glass pie plate, reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
Can you cook pie in a glass dish?
Glass rules: Glass takes its time to heat and heats evenly which makes it a perfect candidate for virtually any pie you’re making. Pyrex: Glass heats slowly and allows heat to build gradually and spread evenly, so my Pyrex tends to be my go-to plate. Bottom-crusts on fruit pies come out crisp and custards cook evenly.
Can I bake a pie crust at 325?
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Line with foil, weight with pastry weights or dry beans and bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and weights and continue baking 10 to 15 minutes longer, until the pastry is golden.
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.
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.
Is it better to bake a pie in glass or metal?
Although metal pans conduct heat better, glass more than makes up for that because it is clear, so radiant energy can pass through the pan and help the crust bake. That means that although glass takes slightly longer to reach the same temperature as the oven, it cooks crusts faster and darker.
Can I put a frozen pie in a glass pie plate in the oven?
A Pyrex pie plate is almost the American standard pie dish. For example, if you froze a piecrust in a glass pie plate, then wanted to bake it, you shouldn’t put the pie plate directly into a preheated oven. Instead, remove the pie plate from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature while the oven preheats.
Can you put a glass pie plate from the freezer to the oven?
Glassware should not be placed directly from the freezer into the oven. Although glass baking dishes are designed to withstand both freezing and baking, they are not designed to withstand rapid changes in temperature. Allow the glassware to defrost before cooking the dinner.

How do you keep pie crust from sticking to the pie plate?
One of the most effective things you can do is submerge the bottom of your pie plate into some hot water for around 10 to 20 seconds. Doing this helps to re-melt any solidified butter, greasing up the pan again, and releasing the crust from sticking to the pan.
7 Tips to Help You Avoid a Soggy Pie Crust
- Use less water. Use the liquid amount as a guideline and sprinkle it on a tablespoon at a time just until your dough comes together.
- Blind-bake your crust.
- Fight the puff a better way.
- Egg wash.
- Seal your crust with chocolate.
- Drain the fruit.
- Use thickeners.
When should you not blind bake?
There are two times when blind baking is necessary: when we’re making a custard pie or when the pie filling is unbaked. With a custard pie, like a pumpkin pie, the moisture in the filling can make the crust soggy before it has time to actually bake.
What happens when you don’t weigh down your pie crust before baking?
Blind baking isn’t just as easy as popping a pie crust in the oven. Pie crust is a delicate thing and baking it without using the proper blind baking process will cause breakage, bubbling, or shrinking.
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.
