Secrets of the Perfect Piecrust
It’s National Pastry Day, and incredible polyurethane holds the key to making your next pastry crust the envy of any baker. The secret is in your refrigerator. In fact, it IS your refrigerator! Cold ingredients are key to great pie crusts. And of course, polyurethane is great for keeping your refrigerator and freezer sealed and insulated so ingredients stay their coldest.
After you’ve rolled out your crust and placed it in a pie dish, place it in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes which allows the gluten in the flour to relax (settle?). This will help keep your crust from shrinking when it bakes. Now get baking!
