- Remove the waxed paper from the top of the round and invert the pie plate on top of the dough.
- Place your other hand under the waxed paper and turn the round over so that the dough falls into the pan.
- uck the dough into the pan and then peel off the waxed paper.
- Let the overhang drape over the edge of the pie plate, while gently fitting the dough into the pan.
- Using scissors trim the dough to a 1 inch overhang.
- Fold the overhang under evenly.
- Crimp the edges of the pie crust with your thumb and forefinger, or press it with the tines of a fork.
