Can you put puff pastry on top of hot filling?
When the fat remains cool until cooking, it melts into layers in the pastry as it cooks, making it nice and flaky. If you put hot filling into your pastry case, you will melt some of the fat prematurely and so the pastry won’t be as good as would be if you let it cool.
Should pie filling be cold before baking?
The filling will make or break your pie. 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.
Does puff pastry go on top of pie?
Place puff pastry on top of pie and gently press edges together to seal. (Do not press the outer edge, or it will not puff well during cooking.) Use a small sharp knife to cut a 4cm cross in pastry centre to allow steam to escape during cooking. Lightly brush top with whisked eggPlace.
How long do you leave puff pastry take to cook?
Bake the pastries at 425°F until puffed: Bake just until you see them puff up and just start to brown, roughly 10 minutes. Baking time will vary based on the size of your pastries and their filling, so keep an eye on them.
Do I cook puff pastry before filling?
Always preheat your oven for a minimum of 15-20 minutes before baking, because Puff Pastry depends on even heat to rise and puff. If you’re making a tart or filled Puff Pastry, place it on the baking sheet before adding toppings or fillings.
Do you poke holes in puff pastry?
Before we baked the puff pastry, we poked a few holes in it with a fork, so that the steam could escape and it didn’t puff up too high. If you ‘re going to bake the puff pastry on its own, either poke it with a great many holes or weight it down a little, as with pie weights.
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.
Can I make a pie and cook it later?
You can prepare the pie in advance and keep it in the fridge, ready to glaze and bake – just allow an extra 10 minutes in the oven. Or you might prefer to make just the pastry ahead – wrap well and keep in the fridge for a few days, or in the freezer for a couple of weeks.
The best way to prevent soggy crust is by blind baking the crust before baking it with the fruit filling. To blind bake, line the pie plate with the pie dough and then place pie weights on top to stop the crust from rising up and bubbling or shrinking.
At what temperature should puff pastry be baked?
Bake in a preheated oven of at least 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) to get the maximum puff from your pastry.
How long does pastry take to cook?
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Fill the pastry case with a round of baking paper and add baking beans (see tip) to weigh it down. Bake for 15 mins, then carefully remove the paper and beans and cook the pastry for 5 mins more (this is called baking blind).
Can you get food poisoning from puff pastry?

Do you put egg wash on puff pastry?
You can brush an egg-wash glaze (1 egg plus 1 tsp. water) over the Puff Pastry to create a rich, golden sheen when baked. Use an egg wash to help seal filled pastries and connect Puff Pastry pieces: mix 1 egg plus 1 tsp. water, brush between layers, then pinch or press together.
How do you keep puff pastry from sticking to pie dish?
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.
Can you cook puff pastry in a frying pan?
Put a little bit of grease in the pan and heat it over medium high heat. Add the pastry and let it sizzle! Flip the pastry over halfway through cooking and sear the other side. If you have never had a fried cookie or puff pastry before, you absolutely must try this!
