A question about a recipe: Spiced Maple Pecan Pie with Star Anise

I have a question about the recipe "Spiced Maple Pecan Pie with Star Anise" from Merrill Stubbs. If I use a frozen pie crust do I need to thaw and bake it before adding the filling?

Hi Jena, In my experience, it's best to thaw and bake the crust before filling to avoid sogginess.

Jena I just used frozen pie crust; directions usually say not to thaw first. Here's what I did:
preheat oven to 425º with a baking sheet inside (which I lined with aluminum foil). Raw crusts were first lined with aluminum foil and pierced with a fork through the foil. Par-bake 15 minutes, approx., until edges were lightly golden. Removed the crusts, turned off oven, and cooled to room temp. Filled the crusts (I was making pumpkin) then bake according to directions, again on a lined baking sheet. Worked beautifully.
