  • Roll out one half of the pie dough (or one pie crust). Place it in the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Let the edges hang over.
  • Fill pie as desired.
  • Roll out top crust. Place over the pie and allow the edges to hang over. Trim excess from the top and bottom crust.
  • Fold the two crusts together, then crimp as desired.
  • Cut slits in the top crust. Brush with eggwash. Cover the edges with foil or a pie shield.
  • Bake according to recipe directions. (With my all butter crust I usually bake at 425°F for 10 minutes then lower the oven temp to 350° then bake until browned, about 40-50 minutes, but follow the directions for the pie you're using.
