For all you baking pies over the next few days – this is a great idea to keep the crust from browning too much! And, much easier than trying to take a long piece of foil and wrap it around the pie…
The edge of a pie crust always browns quicker than the rest of the pie, but did you know it’s really simple to make your own pie crust shield from aluminum foil? It’s so simple, and you’ll never have an over-baked pie crust again.
Step 1 – Tear off a piece of foil slightly larger than the pie. Fold it into fourths.
Step 2 – Cut an arc from one of the sides with folded edges to the other.
Step 3 – Open it up and place on pie. (I spray the back of the foil with non-stick butter spray)
Step 4 – Fold the foil over the edges and they are perfectly covered!
Hope this tip helps you out with your next pie!
