  7. Unroll the pastry on to a 9-inch pie plate. Gently push the dough down into the pie plate. Starting in the center working to the sides. 

  8. Trim the dough to 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Fold the extra dough and crimp the edges however you wish. 

  9. Bake in a 450℉ oven for 13-14 minutes or until golden. May wish to cover with foil halfway through baking time as to not burn the crust.
