Expert Tips

  • Shiny Baking Pans When baking pies and tarts in shiny pans, the bottom crusts do not brown well because heat is reflected away from the pan. To ensure well-baked bottom crusts, place the filled pie or tart pan on a preheated cookie sheet before baking. Bake it for the time stated in the recipe.
