I have a question about step 11 on the recipe "Sausage and Kale Dinner Tart" from My Pantry Shelf. It says:

"Lay parchment paper or foil over dough and fill with beans or pie weights."

I've used metal spoons, probably you could cram a bunch of foil in there and pierce the crust a bunch of times and that would work too. You can use pretty much anything clean that is oven safe and has some weight to it.

Try uncooked rice.
