You show remarkable restraint. You made it LAST NIGHT and haven't tried it yet???

I usually make pies a day before I plan to eat them, so that the filling can set up. I don't like runny filling!

oops, could someone delete my post from last night?
I just realized that it's OT, since it's not a recipe I haven't tried anymore

Rhubarb pie was a success! It's official I like rhubarb pie!



The method in the recipe seemed to work well. You take your sugar and flour, and mix them together, put a portion of the sugar and flour on the bottom, place the cut rhubarb on top of that then the rest of the flour/sugar mixture and dot with butter, place on the top crust. Seemed to keep the rhubarb from releasing it's moisture too soon and kept the bottom crust from getting soft and gummy.

I haven't had rhubarb since I was a kid. And I loved it then. But I like that trick of putting some of the sugar/flour on the bottom crust. I usually brush with an egg and let it air dry before I put in the filling. Do you think it would work with blueberry pie? A family favorite. But like you, I hate it when it is runny.

I think that it would, it seems well suited to juicy fillings.

I make my peach pie from a Cook's Illustrated recipe where I place the cut up peaches in a bowl with sugar, let them sit for at least 30 minutes and drain off the juice, add the cornstarch and a bit of the juice, and bake, no soupy pie.

Thanks for the tip on peaches. I love juicy peaches, but to eat right off the tree. Not in a pie. I now have hope that no more runny pies. My favorite thing to make.

I have some cookie cutters that are Scandinavian in design. Someday I will get up the nerve to use them. They have a spring in them and I am not sure how to use them. They just looked interesting when I bought them.
