  • When is it necessary to put foil over a pie's crust? Dan

    In the past, when I have made pumpkin pie, I have never put foil around the edge of the crust of the pie. Yesterday, I baked a pie with someone else, and they insisted that the foil was necessary to prevent the pie crust from burning. I have noticed the a lot of recipes for pies other than pumpkin (frequently covered pies like strawberry-rhubarb) explicitly call for aluminum foil on the crust.

    When does a pie crust need to be covered in foil while baking?

  • Generally speaking, when the length of the cooking time required to cook the filling correctly is such that the crust would burn if it wasn't covered.

    It is usually more necessary when you have blind-baked the crust, but I must say I've cooked a lot of pies in my time and never covered the crust because I'm always careful to par-bake the crust just enough to seal it and no more.

  • as a better crust-to-filling ratio, I want to try it with a lattice. But I don't have much experience with double-crust pies, so I am not sure how to make it. My first idea is to blindbake the double crust... heavy. Also, I normally line the crust with alu foil when blindbaking. How can I get the alu foil out, and how can I prevent the beans from sticking to the lattice? I don't think there will be problems with the filling, I think a piping bag can get it in while still semi-liquid. The second idea is to bake the lattice separately. I would weave it, put it on something of the right size (I have a glass

Freeze until just set then take a double amount of heavy duty foil, make a mould around the bottom and then top with foil and put in the freezer. then when she is ready to eat, she can just take it out of the freezer, bake for about 30 minutes, then just take

  • while baking. So when I made the crust for Pie B I added more crumbs to the mixture and after pressing the mixture into place in the pie tin I placed another pie tin filled with water inside it to try to keep the crust from slumping/puffing while it baked. I left that inner pie tin in place after baking and during cooling while I prepared the filling. The filling is largely from the pumpkin pie recipe... potatoes, raisins, and minute tapioca. When it came time to ladle the filling mixture in the baked crusts I observed that crust B was definitely moister than A, I presume because the inner pie tin
