Pumpkin Pie Crust

I am looking for some good advice on how to keep the crust from burning on the edges of a pumpkin pie!

Put foil on the edges of the crust works very well...

Hi Josele, I usually do it that way, but somehow the edges always end up in my pie! And it messes it up when I remove it, what am I doing wrong?

HUM! I usually put the foil on the edges and then take it off the last 10 minutes of baking...

Oh, ok. I am going to try that. Thank you so much! I have 6 pumpkin pies to make and I would like all of them to be pretty this year.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Susan, I have another suggestion if that doesn't work for you. I bake my pies for 12-15 minutes then I put a pie shield on the pie & continue baking. You can get these at any kitchen store or Walmart may sell them. Some grocery stores sell them, too. I really think that baking them those few minutes first really helps. Mine shield always comes off without taking part of the pie with it. Guess you can try that if using foil as well.

Thank you, I will try both and see which works best for me. And this is why I love this web-site!!

I usually coat the crust edges with a little bit of beaten egg ( like you would the top of apple pie) It turns golden but doesn't burn.
