MRS. J is asking: (1 answer)
I made a pecan pie and the crust rose up into the middle of the pie. I have been cooking and using that same recipe for more than 30 years and I have never had that to happen. Any ideas. Thanks

Sounds like you had an air pocket under the crust. Pricking the crust with a fork and blind baking should eliminate the problem.

You baked the filling in the pie, and it rose up during baking? Normally the weight of ingredients would keep that from happening! Did you use the same techniques to cut in the fat, then add your liquids that you normally do?

Did you dock the crust before filling was added? Docking is pricking the crust with a fork in several spots to prevent air pockets.
