Place a disc of pie dough in the center of the cutting board.
Rotate the dough to prevent it from sticking to the board and repeat.
Continue until you have a circle of dough that is a 1/8 of an inch thick.
How to Place Dough in a Pie Plate
Place the rolling pin at the edge of the dough and slowly roll the pin to wrap the dough around it.
Hold the rolling pin over a pie pan. Carefully unroll the dough allowing the edges of the dough to hang over the pie pan.
Tuck the dough into the corners of the pan.
How to Embellish the Edges of Pie Dough
With the tips of your fingers, lift the dough that is hanging over the edge of the pan and fold it onto the lip of the pan.
To crimp the edges: Hold the index finger of one hand over the edge of the dough. Press it into the index finger and middle finger of the other hand. Repeat until you've worked all the way around the rim.
Or, to simply decorate the edges with a fork: Gently press the folk along the edges of the dough.
