Sometimes during baking, the edges of a pie crust start to brown too quickly. If that happens, you need a shield. Some kitchen shops sell metal pie shields, but you can easily make your own from foil. Just follow the photos.

1. Fold a 12-inch square of foil in half, and then in half again to make a 6-inch square.
2. Trim the edges to make a quarter circle.
3. Measure 2-inches in and cut out the core of the circle.
4. Open the foil and spread out the ring. Fold 1/4-inch of the outside edge down to fit over the edge of the pie crust.
