Help! CI's not so foolproof pie crust

sljones | Nov 25, 2009 12:37 PM

So with a toddler and a newborn, I'm out of practice making pie crusts. And it was never "natural" for me even in the best of times.

So I opted for Cooks Illustrated Foolproof Pie crust.

Here's what went wrong:

I cooled it for all the specified times, but the crimp on the edge melted down, no design or edge. And the bottom puffed up during the partial bake, even though I weighed down.

So what's up? What is the sleep deprived fool doing wrong?
