custard pie bottom shell, how do you make it so the crust doesn't get soggy. Mine did now I want to fix it. It was my first try at this, custard tasted really good. Just the crust and sogginess....

I always pre cook my crust until its almost done, put the filling in and cook as normal.

Probably should have blind baked the crust prior to adding the custard. What this means is to take your pie crust and bake it for a short period of time before add the custard. If you need additional info on blind baking, let us know.

Then recipe above suggests "painting" the crust with an egg wash before adding the custard.

Blind baking with an egg wash will seal the crust so it will not get soggy.
