Pie Crust Tip
When rolling out your pie dough it is hard to say how big you need to make your circle. All you need to do is take a piece of parchment paper and trace your pie plate with a pen. Now make another circle around the pie plate but add an inch or two depending on how deep your plate is. Now turn it over, making sure the ink side is down, and begin to roll out your dough. The larger circle is the bottom and if you are adding a top use the inner circle afterwards. Using the parchment paper makes it easier to transfer the dough to the pie plate. You just put the paper and dough where you want it and peel off the paper. Easy as pie.
