Quick Answers

 

How do you prevent the bottom crust of a pie from becoming soggy?


Here are several tips that may help:
 

  • use a somewhat drier dough than usual
  • coat the unbaked bottom crust with egg white and partially bake it before pouring the filling in
  • chill dough for 1 hour before adding the filling
  • partially or completely thicken fillings (fruit or cream) before pouring into crust
  • use a tested recipe
  • bake the pie in a preheated oven as soon as it is filled
  • bake in a hot oven (450 degrees F) for the first 15 minutes
