[Sca-cooks] Does pie crust freeze?

Another tip -- after you've squooshed all the air out of the ziplock, 
zip it up to the last inch or so, stick a drinking straw in and "suk" 
MORE air out.  Hold fingertips around the straw opening to keep it 
from re-filling while you're removing air, then hold it tight, pull 
the straw out & finish zipping.

Depending on the actual air-tight of the ziploc, you'll actually see 
some vacuum suckage, at least for the first few minutes!  I do it 
anyway, because air in the bag makes for even more dessication 
(freezer burn) than you're going to get anyway, so every little bit 
removed helps!
