Tips

Don't have a deep-dish pie plate? Use a 9-inch pie plate, the same amount of crust mixture and 4 1/2 cups of the filling. If desired, spoon remaining filling into three 6-ounce custard cups and bake in a 375°F oven for 25 minutes or until set.

  • On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 13 inches in diameter.

  • Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin. Unroll into a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it.

  • Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with the plate's edge. Crimp as desired.
