Essential Baking Hints:
  • DO NOT UNDER-BAKE CRUST
    Ultimate flavor & texture depend upon sold nut browning.
  • Cover pie plate with sheet of foil if edge gets too brown.
  • ALWAYS place pans on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Never bake at 400 for over 10 minutes.
PREPARE CRUSTS FOR PAN.
• Peel wax paper off pastry circles
immediately, while product is still frozen.
• Thaw approx. 10 minutes. Pastry should
be cool but pliable; if too soft, put in
refrigerator 3 - 5 minutes.
• Do Not Microwave.
PLACE CRUST IN PAN OR TART TIN.
• Press dough firmly into sides and bottom
of plate or French tart tin.
• Pre-heat oven to 400.

• If using a French tart tin, press
off excess dough.
• Cut 4-5 slits in top crust for
steam to escape.

350° for at least 50 minutes.
