Recipe Notes

  • Read all my tips above.
  • Please NOTE that all ovens are slightly different and baking times may vary. Also these instructions work best with my butter pie crust recipe, that’s been linked above. If you use a different recipe, your results might be different too.
  • Store-bought crusts brown much faster. If you are blind baking that, keep a close eye on it.
