The bottom of my pie crust always turns out soggy. Help!

My lower piecrust on my fruit pies is always soggy. How can I prevent this?

We're here to help, Bobbie. If your bottom crust is turning out soggy:

  • Use a dull metal or glass pie plate rather than a shiny metal pan.
  • Patch any cracks in the pastry with a pastry scrap before adding the filling.
  • Make sure your oven temperature is accurate. If the temperature is too low, the bottom crust won't bake properly.
