Tips for Baking

It is preferable to use pie dough for the bottom of the pie and puff pastry dough for the top if you want your pie to come out perfectly cooked with a crispy crust.Try not to overfill your pies, or they will not seal correctly and the filling will leak out during cooking.Egg washing around edges of the crust will help the top and bottom stay together.Keep dough cool as you work with it.
