Is pie crust supposed to be flaky BEFORE you bake it?
« on: March 12, 2010, 05:54:43 am »
Or did I just fuck it up?

I made up some pie dough so I could bake it tomorrow. It's for apple pie. But either I stirred the flour too much, or the liquid I used (aple and orange kool-aid type stuff, I thought it was apple juice but was mistaken) was NOT meant to be used in baking. It ended up being sticky in flakes on me and not really wanting to stick to itself too much. Is this a good or a bad thing?

Add a bit of water tomorrow before you roll it out... it should be fine.

Alton Brown is Awesome. :D

i probably used too much kool-aid stuff, but it may be ok.

It looks like an awesome pie right now, anyway.

I love how in baking new things I spend so much time fretting over whether it will suck and then it usually doesn't.
