How can I prevent a single, unfilled pie crust from shrinking when baked?


Here are some tips to help:
 

  • generously prick the unbaked crust with a fork after placing it in the pie pan
  • fill the unbaked shell with dry rice or beans; remove them a few minutes before the baking time is over
  • place an empty pie pan in the crust before baking
  • avoid overstretching the pie crust when you are transferring it to the pie pan.
