ingredients 1 prepared Sweet Pie Crust
instructions Roll the pie dough to a thickness of 1/8-inch and, working carefully, fit the rolled dough into a 10-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges decoratively and then refrigerate the shell, lightly covered, for at least 1 hour and up to overnight before proceeding.
instructions Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
instructions Lightly coat a piece of wax or parchment paper with cooking spray on one side and position, greased side down, on top of the chilled pie crust.
instructions Fill the pie with pie weights (dried rice or beans works fine) and blind bake the crust until it turns opaque, 10 to 12 minutes.
ingredients 1 Egg White
instructions Remove the weights and parchment paper and, using a pastry brush, immediately brush with the egg white. Set aside until ready to use.
instructions Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees F.
