While I baked the pie at the recommended time, the bottom remained uncooked, why?
This may have happened for 3 reasons:
- The pie was not cut deep enough before or during baking and thus the accumulated steam has softened the dough.
- The baking tray was not placed at the lower rack of the oven or the bottom heating elements of the oven were not in use (it is necessary to operate the bottom heating function to bake the bottom of the dough).
- The filling that was used was too moist, and softened the dough.
While I baked the tart at the recommended time, it remained uncooked, why?
This may have happened for 2 reasons:
- The pastry should be pierced with a fork, before adding the filling. Piercing the dough is necessary so that it doesn't hold the steam.
- The baking tray was not placed at the lower rack of the oven or the bottom heating elements if the oven were not in use (it is necessary to operate the bottom heating function of the oven to bake the bottom of the tart).
After 20'-30' of baking, the top (for pies), or filling (for tarts), is well-baked while the rest needs further baking, why?
It‘s likely to happen, that's why we suggest to cover the pie or the tart with a tinfoil and continue baking.
I have trouble unrolling the Pillsbury sheeted dough (traditional fyllo and shortcrust), why?
This is because the dough was not left out of the refrigerator for 20'-30 to soften before opening. We advise you to let the dough at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before use.
