Trader Joe's frozen pie crust - fail!

RWCFoodie | Oct 29, 201412:08 PM     35

Tried searching to see if anyone else has had problems, but didn't come up with anything, so I'm starting this thread...

Last week I bought a pkg of frozen pie crust at TJ (was feeling lazy). This is not pre-formed into a pie pan, it's rolled (2/pkg). I followed the directions for thawing in the refrigerator as I didn't need it until the next day.

Took it out & attempted to unroll it into a tart pan. It totally fell apart. It wasn't dried out or hard, it just had a lot of creases every couple of inches & even though it was pliable, it just broke up at the crease lines. So I messed around & pressed the broken places back together. In the end, the tart was ok, but I was so frustrated with it!

Has anyone else had this problem or is it just the way frozen pie crusts work? Is it specific to the TJ product?

Tks...
