Cooking Recipe

Baking pie crust:
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

2. Use a fork to lightly prick the flat surface of the pie pastry. Take a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and press it into the pie plate, gently pushing it right up against the pastry. Fill the sheet of foil or parchment paper with pie weights, dried beans or even uncooked rice to hold it in place. This weight helps the pie dough hold its shape.

3. Bake the crust for 20 minutes, then remove it from the oven and take out the pie weights and the aluminum foil liner.

4. Lower the oven temperature to 375°F. Return the pie to the oven to bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool completely before using.
