Blind Baking Pie Crusts?

arielleeve | Jul 12, 2011 08:13 AM

I'm wondering what people think about blind baking pie crusts before adding filling. I always blind bake tart shells, but I notice that a lot of pie recipes skip this step and just call for filling the uncooked shell and baking for an hour or so. When I've done this I've found the bottom of the crust to be undercooked, so I always like to blind bake, but I'm wondering why no recipes suggest doing so. Thoughts?
