for things in a crust, I found that wrapping them loosely in tin foil, and THEN putting them in 
ziplocks helped keep the crust from getting soggy, plus the extra packaging that was slightly stiff 
meant they didnt get as smooshed!

of course the best way to transport tarts and such is in the muffin pans (we sometimes do our 
handheld pies in texas muffin tins)
