Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Pie Weights

October 17, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • If you don’t have pie weights for baking pastry, try using dried beans, lentils or rice. Pie weights are small, heavy objects used to weigh down your pastry when you pre-bake it (also called blind baking). They prevent the crust from pulling away from the sides and bottom of the pan. Line your pastry with parchment paper or aluminum foil to keep beans and pastry from sticking together. Then place beans on top of the lining. Voila baked tart shell!
