Asked in Pie Crusts
How do pie crusts shrink after baking?
Pie crusts always shrink after baking if the pie shell is baked with nothing in it. This is referred to as 'Blind Baking' the pie shell. This should always be done either of 2 ways. 1. cover the shell with Aluminium Foil. OR 2. cover the shell with a good layer of uncooked rice. Tip out the rice when the edges of the pie crust looks cooked, and after it has cooled down a bit.(Rice is cheap, so throw it away after using it) The shrinkage of Pastry Shells can be minimised if you let the uncooked pastry rest for a couple of minutes after it has been rolled to the desired thickness. Ideally, you will rest it at least 2 times during the rolling process. Be sure to never overcook a 'Blind ' cooked pastry shell. Better if it looks not cooked enough. For Apple Pies, always put the cooked, and cooled , apple into the UNCOOKED SHELL, then bake it for the usual 20 to 25 minutes
