We’re in peak fruit pie season and there’s arguably no better way to enjoy your favorite summer bounty—but nothing ruins a great pie faster than cutting a slice to find a big fruit puddle. It’s a topic hot on our Baking Club members’ minds, as we bake through Melissa and Emily Elsen's The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book this month.

To ensure picture-perfect pies, we’ve rounded up a handful of strategies to help control juiciness. Test them out to see which ones work best for you.

How to Control the Juiciness of Your Fruit Pies by Erin McDowell

Reduce the fruit’s juice

Literally, reduce it! Baking guru and pie whisperer Erin McDowellrecommends tossing fruit with the sugar called for in the recipe (a process called maceration). Once the fruit has releases its juices, strain it, and boil until it reduces to about 1/4 to 1/3 cup. At that point some of the warm juice can be used to make a slurry with your thickener of choice (more on that in a moment). Freezing and thawing the fruit is another option for getting the fruit to release its juices, a technique the Elsen’s use for their Rhubarb Pie.

…no puddle in the bottom of the pie pan? Follow a recipe when making fruit pie . Sounds like common sense, doesn’t it? But how many times have you made a fruit pie , and substituted raspberries for some of the peaches, or cherries for a portion of the blueberries?

Precook the filling

Another one of McDowell’s strategies is to fully pre-cook the pie filling. This way you can control the filling’s thickness before it even goes into the crust. She especially likes to use this method for stone fruits, like peaches, cherries, plums, and their kin.

Add something to soak up the juice

Another option for dealing with the fruit’s inevitable juiciness is to sprinkle something on the bottom of the crust to soak it all up, like breadcrumbs or crushed graham crackers.

Change up your thickening agent

Cornstarch, arrowroot, tapioca, flour—the list of options goes on and on. Generally, it’s best to stick with the thickener called for in the recipe (presumably it’s been tested and should work!), but if your pies are still runny, it might be time to play around with a different one. King Arthur Flour has a rundown on the differences between a few of the most common options, as well as a couple of ones they sell, like Instant ClearJel and Pie Filling Enhancer.

The Dos and Don'ts of Grilling Fruit

  The Dos and Don'ts of Grilling Fruit The first time I was served grilled fruit, it seemed like a magic trick. Of course I had to replicate this party trick immediately, and naturally, I fouled it up the first few times. I had the heat too high or too low, I left the lid open, I didn't oil the grill enough, I tried to grill watermelon. (Seriously, it's mostly water and it burns in about three seconds if you're not careful.) But grilling fruit is something of a forte of mine now, and I've got a few bits of advice that will make it all a little simpler.

Par-Bake Your Double Crust Pies & Join the Anti-Soggy Crust Crusade by Erin McDowell

Add pectin

Pectin is what makes jam gel, and can be used to help pies set as well. When making a pie with a low-pectin fruit (like blueberries, strawberries, and peaches), try mixing in a fruit higher in pectin. One common combination is blueberry with grated Granny Smith apple mixed in. Mrs. Wheelbarrow uses kiwi to help set strawberry jam, and hardlikearmour ran with that idea and now adds kiwi in low-pectin fruit pies to minimize the amount of starch needed to set them. And packaged pectin works, too—Cook’s Illustrated uses a combination of pectin and cornstarch to thicken its peach pie filling.

Allow plenty of time for it to set up

We get it. It’s unbelievably tempting to cut into a pie before it’s fully cooled. Warm pie, cold ice cream, it’s a match made in heaven, right? Not if you want your pie to be fully set. Let you pie cool completely before cutting into it. Mark Neufang says, “I find that if you don't give it at least a solid 8 hours cooling, there is a greater chance for runniness when you cut into it.”

5 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Iced Tea

  5 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Iced Tea For hot days at the pool or summer nights on the porch, there’s no more classic drink than a tall, cool glass of iced tea. But don’t let your taste buds get hijacked by the sugary bottled stuff—especially when it’s so easy to brew your own. And an added benefit of DIY is that you can spike your pitcher with all kinds of interesting (and nonalcoholic) mixers, so you can sip something different all summer long. “Tea is an amazing drink because it’s healthy and so easy to make,” says Nadia De La Vega, tea specialist for David’s Tea. “You don’t need any special equipment.

This 3-Ingredient Whipped Dip Is as Pretty as It Is Delicious .
Creamy, salty dips get all the attention, but dipping one food in another shouldn’t be limited to savory snacking. Dessert dips make eating fruit more fun, and they’re somehow even easier to make than dips of the oniony ilk. All you need is a creamy cheese and an electric mixer of some kind. Bacon Is a Dipping FoodIn its simplest form, a creamy dessert dip can be comprised of a single ingredient. Just grab a soft, flavored goat cheese—like Trader Joe’s honey chèvre or something with cranberries in it—and whip it until it soft enough to drag strawberry through.
