  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the pan with a vegetable spray. (Use regular pie pan or a tart pan with a removable bottom.)

  • Press the dough into the tart/pie pan with your fingers until it is evenly distributed on the bottom and sides of pan.
  • Place the pan in preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven, place on a wire rack to cool. Fill with a filling of your choice.
