How to bake a pie crust without shrinking? For the most part, you can utilize an unglazed or metal-ceramic pie plate. It stops the shrinking crusts. Afterward, you can blind bake the dough at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember that you can still blind bake the crusts even if you only own glass pie plates.
Before you start baking, you want the pie crust to be cold. With this, know that butter possesses a low melting point compared to shortening. For this reason, it will shrink more as opposed to shortening crust.
