Shape each half into a ball, flour lightly & wrap in plastic. If you are making one single-crust pie, freeze one ball of pastry for another time. Refrigeratethe pastry you are using for 2 hrs.
  2. Roll out pastry & ease into a 9" pie pan. If you are making a double-crust pie, roll out top crust.
  3. TO BAKE BEFORE FILLING: Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  4. Prick the bottom of dough proportionately all over with the tines of a fork. Cover the dough w/buttered foil, placing buttered side against the bottom crust. Fill with rice or possibly beans. These may be saved & used again for baking unfilled pie shells. Bake for 15 min, or possibly till set. Remove foil, brush with egg & bake 5 min longer, or possibly till golden brown. Let cold before filling.
