1001 Kitchen tips # 42 - How do I stop the edges of my pie burning?
Beacuse the crimped edges of a good pie are raised, they burn easily.
I use a tip I picked up from the best pastry recipe - http://www.myhomecooking.net/apple-pie/Baking-Apple-Pie.htm. I cut a long strip of foil and fold it over on itself and gently place them over the pastry edges before the pie goes in the oven. Take them off about 10 minutes before the pie is due to finish cooking, so the pastry edges finally are allowed to brown.
