RE: [Histonet] not histology related

From:"Simmons, Christopher"

Ok, I got this from my wife..she tells me regardless of the water you use, put a piece of dry penne pasta in the center of the pie when you bake it.
It will act as a vent to let the right amount of moisture out of the fruit filling, and as a bonus, the additional moisture in the oven will keep the pie crust as the right flakyness.
Just reporting this....
Hope it helps:)

This sounds like we are still on Friday. 
Joe, don't forget that if you are using a microwave we need all the specs for that too!

My question is: do you use 3-4 TSB of water? This morning, I used almost 1/2 cup. As long as I've been baking, I've never used 3-4 TSB of water. I don't know why this bothers me, but it does. Sometimes my crust is too dry, other times, it's soggy. What is a histotech to do? Thanks y'all
