  • When baking, your dough will shrink a bit, which can impact the lip of the crust. Be generous with what you leave on the pie when you trim it.
  • Use tinfoil to guard your crust. There are also pie guards for sale, but i have had better luck with just plain tinfoil.
  • Let that pie rest for a while before serving.
