  • Place dough between 2 lightly floured sheets of waxed paper; roll into 10-inch round. Discard top sheet of waxed paper. Spray 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray; invert over dough. Flip pie plate, holding pie plate and dough together. Discard second sheet of waxed paper.

  • Gently press dough onto bottom and up side of pie plate. Flute edge of crust, if desired, then use as desired.

Tips

This easy-to-prepare recipe makes enough dough for a single-crust 9-inch pie. Or, it also makes the perfect pastry topping for your favorite pot pie recipe. If preparing a two-crust pie, double all ingredients and shape dough into 2 balls before rolling out.

Food Facts:

When shaping the dough into a ball, handle it as little as possible to help prevent the baked crust from becoming tough.
