    Blind Bake
    The most common way to ward off a soggy pie crust is by a process called blind baking. Blind baking means you pre-bake the crust (sometimes covered with parchment or foil and weighed down with pie weights to prevent the crust from bubbling up) so that it sets and crisps up before you add any wet filling.

    You can fully blind bake a pie until it's completely cooked, which you have to do when adding a cooked filling like custard or mousse, or you can partially bake the crust before adding the filling and finishing the baking. In either case, blind baking goes a long way in keeping everything nice and crisp!

    I like to prick my crusts with a fork, then when you put the berries in either use some fine tapoica or mix a bit of flour in with the berries, and it will create a gel like sauce from the juice to prevent soggy crust.

    Instead of pre baking the crust for strawberry pie add the uncooked filling to the uncooked crust, Cover with Parchment paper and plastic wrap and freeze the whole pie right away. Take it out to cook the morning of the day you want to eat it. Bake at a preheated oven of 400 degrees F. for about 20 minutes to seal the crust then turn it down to 350 degreesF. and bake until it is browned all over. About 30 - 40 minutes. Check it to judge the browning of the pie periodically until you are satisfied. I do my fresh fruit pies this way because they taste so fresh, look good, taste good and other people tell me they like them. Enjoy baking and if you have time...let me know how you like them.
