Homemade Pie Crust Protector Ring

An inexpensive (and easy) way to protect your pie crust from burning is this: Lay a large sheet of aluminum foil over the pie plate you plan to use. Press down lightly to form an indentation of the plate into the foil.

Remove and cut around the outline, discarding leftover foil. This ring should fit perfectly over the crust, preventing it from burning during the baking process. Simply tuck overhanging foil under the lip of the pie plate to secure. Happy baking!

Please don't throw away that piece of foil! Use it to cover a salad plate or cereal bowl...whatever...but to toss it out doesn't seem too thrifty to me.

A MUCH easier way to prevent your crusts from burning is this: If the recipe says to cook at 425 for 30+ minutes (a lot of pies do), then cook it at 425 for the first 15 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350 for the remainder of the time. I do this every time I bake a pie (usually apple or blueberry) and I never burn my crusts.

Thanks for this. I used to cut strips of foil and lay then around the

pie and tuck them down. I save all my foil and reuse it many times.

If it gets soiled I wipe it down while its warm and keep useing it.
