Kristina Osborn February 25, 2014 NHM 250-003 Lab 5: Pies and Pastries 1. What effect does manipulation have on pie crust? - Excessive manipulation creates decreased flakiness, tenderness, and crispness.  It is  best to touch and manipulate the crust as little as possible. 2. What effect would too much water have on pie crust? - Too much water would make the crust too sticky. 3. Why is the pastry dough docked (pricked) before baking when making a baked pie shell? - It is important to dock the dough because you want the air to circulate through the  pie.  4. Why is oil used at a lower rate in pastry dough recipe? - Little oil is used because you want the dough to be able to hold onto the side of the  pan while it bakes. 5. Why are slits made in the top crust of a pie? - You cut slits in the top of a double crust pie so that the steam can get out and the pie  does not get soggy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
