Oh Great and Powerful Pickle, please help me avoid gummy pie crust. For my pumpkin pie, I'd like to try blind baking my pie crust and then filling it with a pumpkin custard that has been mostly cooked on the stove top. I find the standard method of using an unbaked crust often yields a gummy crust under the filling. Has anyone tried this or do you have suggestions for how to do this? I'm thinking maybe I can cook the custard on the stove top and then transfer to the pie crust and finish in the oven for 25 mins or so.
