Step 2: Prep
If using my pie crust recipe, prick the crust a bunch of times with a fork to prevent it from getting all poofy. Line with foil and weights (I used lag bolts again) and bake crust at 375oF (190oC)for 20 minutes.
Remove the foil and weights and bake another 8-10 minutes until golden.
Reduce your oven temp to 325oF (160oC) for the impending pie.
