Baking a Pie--New Question!
« on: October 11, 2006, 05:59:55 PM »
I haven't made a pie with out using a premade crust--IN THE TIN--for many years, but Jazi's Vegetable Pot Pie recipe (http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=4676.0) has inspired me to do so, even though the cold front has been stalled until tomorrow afternoon.

So here's the deal: the Pillsbury package says to put it in and ungreased pie pan (glass in my case.)  Is that correct?  Don't use any butter or oil or non-stick spray?  I don't want the crust to stick to the glass, just to my ribs! Help!

A pie crust is so loaded with fat that it doesn't need any extra on the pan.  That's why pie crust tastes SO good.

Okay what is this crap about putting foil around the edges 15 minutes into the bake?  What is this supposed to do again?? I tried it and it burned, so I tried it with hotpads but had no dexterity, now I've done it but I've fingers liked a seasoned bass player from the callouses!

I make calzones that I seal with a vicious twisting...is this supposed to keep it from leaking or browning or what??   ???

Twenty minutes until pot pie heaven, I hope!!

I find it better to start with the foil on the edges, then remove the foil toward the end of the bake.  Much less likely to burn the fingers, and it still gives a nice brown crust.

RE: foil around the edges....   not to be crude ( perish the thought)  but its to keep the rim from browning.....
................... go ahead...   Ill wait ..

the dough is thinner around the edges and therefore cooks faster, the foil slows the cooking so that the edges cook at the same rate as the rest of the crust.

I'm with Whizzer.  I always start with foil first and take it off the last 15 min. of cooking time.  Also on Pillsbury crust, a little trick I use to fool everyone, I use an egg wash on the top crust to give it a rich golden brown crust and a wonderful taste.  Tastes even more like homemade.

I've been baking pumpkin pies each week to use damaged pumpkin cans which came from the local food pantry for the mental health residence I work in.  Using the frozen, deep dish, crusts, I don't weight the foil.  I bake it as directed in How To Cook for X minutes with foil covering the entire crust and then remove the foil and add the filling.  If you use enough foil to cover the pie and then some, you can reuse it to cover the pie once it has cooled.
