Easy Pie Crust Tip

I am sure most of you have already figured this out, but since I just learned this trick over Thanksgiving I thought I would share.

I love making pies, but sometimes have a difficult time transferring the crust to the pan. Then I saw my friend use this easy technique, and the best part is that it works with those finicky whole wheat crusts too!

Roll out your crust.

Then roll your crust around your rolling pin.

One your crust is completely around your rolling pin you can pick up the pin and lay it over your pan.

Then roll the crust off the pin.

You can find my non-healthy, but never fail pie crust recipe here.

  1. Hey, I like that idea! I hadn’t thought of doing that before. I wonder if it would work with my rolling pin, though, because I have a special rolling pin that has bent upright handles. My mom got it for me in Germany and I haven’t seen any in the US, but I prefer it to the straight ones.

  2. Great tip! I have heard of the tip, but I forgot. I will have to try this next time I make a pie!
