    Hi Everyone, Thanks so much for signing on to Craftsy Chats today. I posted on my website about some of the equipment we talked about today. Here is the link.

    I live in Denver, Co., will there be any adjustments to the pie dough?

    When I bake my crust sometimes it slides down the pie plate, how do I prevent that?

    Ok, my question is not about the custard pie filling, it's the meringue on the custard pit, HOW do you stop weeping??????

    The pie crust recipe I use calls for half softened butter and half shortening. I also add 1 TBSP of vodka which is supposed to make the crust more flaky. Is there any disadvantage to using soft butter? And have you heard of adding vodka?

    I keep a Baking Steel in my oven. It helps my pies, galettes, etc., to brown. But I do put a baking sheet under the pie pan. With a galette, it’s already on a baking sheet.

    I've had problems in the past in getting lemon meringue pies to set. Once, it seemed like it was set until I put on the meringue. I followed the instructions. Any tips?
