I need help diagnosing my pie problems. I've made every recipe under the sun and have seen basically the same result - while baking the butter weeps out of the crust, to the point of creating puddles, and once cooled the crust is incredibly tough.
I keep everything cold, try not to add too much water, try not to overwork the dough, etc. I feel like I know enough about potential pie-pitfalls to prevent this, but it still helps happening. Any idea what's going wrong?
