HELP! Pie Crust meltdown

thursday | Nov 26, 2009 11:12 AM

Emergency Thanksgiving help, please!

Trader Joe's changed the recipe of their pie crust, and the new one not only gets extremely puffy, but it will not stick to the sides of the pie pan - the entire thing falls to the bottom.

I tried rolling it out larger and tucking it under the outside of the pie dish, then put it in the freezer for half an hour, lined it with pennies, and it still slid to the bottom and turned into a giant puff ball when I tried to pre-bake. The pumpkin pie cooked alright because of the filling, but my pecan pie needs to be pre-baked - I bought an extra crust in case of such emergency - but does anyone have an immediate fix for this???
