Frequently Asked Questions
How to make pie crust:
I highly recommend checking out my Best Ever Pie Crust recipe and reading through all the tips in the pink tip box. This recipe is practically foolproof, so it’s perfect if you’re intimidated by homemade pie crust.
Don’t believe me? Here’s what one of our readers has to say: “I’ve been baking for 20 years. I’m also a chemist. Pie crust has been my NEMESIS. I swore it off on my last attempt 4 years ago, but for some reason I wanted to try this. And it WORKED!!! Holy crap!! It was so easy to work with and actually tasted good. FINALLY!”
How to make pie dough ahead of time:
Pastry dough can be shaped into a disc and refrigerated for up to 3 days, as long as it’s well wrapped in plastic. Unbaked pie shells can also be refrigerated for up to 3 days. This works perfectly for single-crust pies like pumpkin or sweet potato. Simply roll out your dough, lay it into your pie tin, crimp the edges, and cover loosely with plastic wrap. When ready, simply remove from the fridge, fill, and bake.
How to freeze pie dough:
Pastry dough can be shaped into a disc and frozen for up to 2 months, well wrapped in plastic and placed in a freezer bag. Defrost in the fridge overnight. You can also freeze already rolled out dough if you have room in your freezer. You can use it straight from the freezer; just let it sit at room temperature briefly so it becomes easier to press into the pie tin.
Unbaked pie shells can also be covered and frozen for up to 2 months. No thawing necessary.
Why is my pie dough sticky?
Make sure the dough is well chilled, and that the work surface, the dough, and the rolling pin are all lightly floured. Keep turning the dough so it won’t get stuck to the counter, and keep lightly flouring as needed. OR, for easier rolling and clean up, roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap.

Does pumpkin pie need to be refrigerated?
Yes! Store pumpkin pie covered in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. The longer the pie is in the fridge the softer the crust will grow.
