Begin with our recipes for Basic Pie Crust or Cheddar Pie Crust, and follow these easy instructions for a beautiful single-crust pie.
After loosely wrapping dough around floured rolling pin, carefully unroll it over a 9-inch pie plate.
Gently ease dough into bottom and up sides of pie plate (do not stretch dough).
Using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, trim the dough to an even 1-inch overhang.
Tuck the overhang under itself to create a rim; press to seal. Crimp the rim with your thumb and forefinger, or press with the tines of a fork.
