How do you keep a pecan pie from leaking out of crust?

(Buttering the pie plate is important especially for a pecan pie. The filling tends to leak through the bottom crust and stick, making serving difficult.) One way to prevent that leakage is to paint the bottom crust with slightly beaten egg white before adding the filling.

Why is my chocolate pecan pie runny?

A pecan pie is essentially a custard pie, and a liquid center is almost always the result of underbaking. The Karo Classic Pecan Pie recipe calls for baking the pie for 60 to 70 minutes at 350 degrees. Some bakers opt to reduce the oven temperature to 325 and bake the pie for a longer time.

Why is my pie soupy?

Pay attention to bake times: one reason you’ll often end up with a runny fruit pie is simply that it hasn’t been baked long enough. Any thickener you use needs a little time to set up, and people often see their crust turning light brown and think the pie is done when it’s really not.

How do you know when pecan pie filling is set?

If the filling is flowing in a wavy movement from the center to the edge, your pie isn’t set quite yet. The way to tell if pecan pie is done is when the center gives you just a little jiggle—like the stable but slightly wiggly movement of Jell-O when you give it a gentle shake—but the edges are stable and set.

Should pecan pie be jiggly after baking?

Here’s the pie. When you pull it out of the oven, it should be only slightly jiggly. If it’s overly jiggly, keep it in the oven for a little while longer. BUT…be careful not to burn the pecans.

Why did my pecan pie puff up?

Why does my pie puff and then fall? Pecan pie has a tendency to soufflé and fall. Stick to 350°F—a higher oven temperature will make the custard puff up like a soufflé and fall upon cooling. Do not cool it too quickly in the refrigerator, the change is too drastic.

Can you bake 2 pecan pies at once?

Even without a convection oven, your pie cooks primarily by convection — that is, the air in the oven is heated, flows around in the oven, and transfers heat to the pie. You certainly can cook two pies at once, but you have to be more attentive and take steps to help them cook evenly.

How do you bake 3 pies at once?

Is it OK to bake a pie on a cookie sheet?

Nick says: Normally it’s not a good idea to bake a pie on a pan or cookie sheet unless you deliberately want to insulate the bottom of the pie. If your bottom crust looks good but the top crust is too pale, move the pie to the upper third of the oven for the last 15 minutes of baking.

At what temperature is a pecan pie done?

For pecan pie, bake the filling to an internal temperature of 185 degrees.
