Pie crust woes

willownt | Oct 16, 2007 09:50 AM

I have made a fair number of decent pie crusts in my life, but lately I seem to be cursed with crusts that fall. This had never happened to me but it's happened to my last two crusts (two different recipes); the sides on one fell completely, while the middle poofed up, and my most recent one sagged in one spot. Is this mostly due to the crust not being cold enough when it hits the oven? Is my oven not hot enough as well? Any other suggestions for improvement?
