Pie Baking Tips

Because this pie roundup has so many different kinds of pie, I wanted to give you all of my tips and tricks so that each and every one of your pies turns out perfectly!

  • Cold Ingredients: Keeping your ingredients cold before you bake is key to a delicious pie crust! This helps you achieve that perfectly golden and flakey pie crust!
  • Don’t Use Too Much Flour: When rolling out the dough, try using as little flour as possible. If you work the dough too much and add in too. much extra flour, the dough will become tough and not bake properly.
  • Blind Bake the Crust: If you are making a cream pie or a custard pie, you must bake your pie crust ahead of time. You can find out all about how to blind bake a crust here.
  • Use the Bottom Rack: When you are baking a pie, it’s always best to place it on the lowest rack in your oven. This helps prevent your pie crust from becoming soggy on the bottom.
