You could try this. After you line the pie maker. Poke holes into the bottom of the shells with a plastic fork and see if that will work. I'm thinking it will release any air bubbles that might show up.

Good luck.

Munky.

I think either way would work...Wish I hadn't tossed the trimmings of the last pie dough.

I made tuna casserole...without the noodles and put it in the pies...yummy with cheese!!!

I have been looking at this thread for a while, and may have to get one of these for making little pies. Do you know if they would ship well? My Dad lives far from me, and just loves pies. Since I am not near to make them for him, I am thinking that this might be a great idea if they sould ship OK. What do you think? Would there be a way to ship these little pies without them breaking all apart? Just wondering.

I really don't see how, unless you freeze them solid and ship in dry ice.

They don't have little pans, so you would have to wrap them well, so they don't break.

Just a thought about the tart shells, weights and such.

What if you used the Reynolds foil lined baking cups? They come in a small container that have a paper insert. Remove the paper liner. Insert the foil cup, place the dough in and bake.They are designed so that you don't have to use a muffin pan, just a cookie sheet.

It shouldn't scratch your pie maker, still bake the crust and have a pretty cool looking rigid pie shell.

I just pulled one foil liner out to test. It will fit perfectly into the pie maker, just a smidgen over the top. I think the dough once it's in will even it out perfectly.

Munky.

Awww Kade's glad it's finally arrived. Bout time!

So, what are making first? I'm really hungry. Dinner's at what time again?

I've got a roast on the crock pot now. I'll be making Beef Pot Pies tomorrow. Missed my pie maker.

Don't worry about Phil's. Gil ( hope he's feeling better) and graduations come first. One of these Thursdays I won't have to see the men in white coats.. They're coming to take me away!.. Just kidding.

Have fun with your pie maker.

Munky.
