Good morning! Forgive me if this is something you have tried already, but I like to freeze my pie shells for 10-15 minutes before I pre-bake them. Then I put a layer of foil on, and since the dough is firm from the freezer, i tuck the foil so it is like a second skin on the pie, and I am able to fill it to the brim with dried beans or rice for baking. The formed crust keeps its shape with the foil skin and plenty of weights.

And on the same day, a new Orange Boyfriend.

Both exciting firsts for me! Perfect that they were lined up.
