How do you bake a pie in the oven?
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Put the pie, turnovers, or pastry on a cookie sheet on foil or parchment, and lightly cover with foil. For a 9-inch pie, heat for 15-20 minutes. A 5-inch pie will take about 12-15 minutes and turnovers will take about 10-12 minutes.
Where in the oven is the best place to bake a fruit filled pie and why?

How do you cool a pie crust quickly?
Make sure to let the dough chill in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes after you place it in the pie plate. This will give the dough time to relax and prevent it from shrinking as much too. If you don’t have ceramic pie weights, then dried beans or rice work well instead.
How do I know when my pie crust is done?

- It’s helpful to bake your pie in a glass-bottom dish so that you can see when the bottom is bronzed to your liking.
