Pie weights are the baking tool which keeps pie baking from becoming a frustrating experience. They are so simple, but one of the handiest tools around. Simple pour them into the bottom of a pie crust before baking, and they will keep the pastry from rising...staying nice and flat in the bottom.
- enough for one, 9" pie
- hand wash, if necessary
- remove weights before filling pie
Having a proper set of pie weights makes it easy to bake beautiful crusts for all your pies. To me, they are as indispensable as a rolling pin for making pie crust.
