Ceramic Pie Weights
See ya, soggy bottoms.
The secret to a light and flaky crust that keeps its shape? Turns out it’s these ceramic pie weights. They’re just the ticket for all your custard-filled pies (fruity tarts and eggy quiches too). Just top your dough-lined dish with parchment paper, fill it to the brim with these helpers, and you’re ready to par-bake that crust to perfection. Soggy bottoms have met their match.
