      Press dough into smooth, flat disc.

      Prick chilled pie shell all over with fork.
    14. 14
      Line pie shell with foil; place pie weight or dry beans or rice in shell.
    15. 15
      Bake for 20 minutes; remove foil and weights and bake for 10-15 minutes more, until pie shell is golden.
    16. 16
