Some pie doughs are more difficult to handle due to the amount of fat in their composition, like the one in the photo above, made in the delicious recipe for Strawberry Pie with Rice Pudding. Another factor that can hinder that step of getting the dough in shape is the temperature of the room – the hotter your kitchen is, the more work it will be to keep each piece in its place.
So keep the dough cold (but not too much, otherwise it can be brittle) when it comes to putting it in shape and use only your fingertips to prevent hand heat from further softening the dough.
Another secret is run your fingers through wheat flour: This prevents the dough from sticking and facilitates the process of forming a uniform layer of dough.
The same goes for cookie doughs, such as Gingerbread, which has softness as a hallmark.
