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.
Pie crust gets light, flaky and crisp when the heat of the oven melts the little nubs of fat inside the crust quickly and so that they form steam that puffs the crust up. You want that process to happen quickly so that the crust sets before the filling has much of a chance to seep in and make things soggy.
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.
How do I bake a premade frozen pie crust?

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.
