Ingredients

Parchment.  It can be found near the wax paper and aluminum foil.

Instructions

Here is a simple way to cut your parchment in a perfect circle of the desired size.

Start with a piece of parchment that is cut just about square and fold it in half.

Fold in half again to form a smaller square.

Now fold on the diagonal, with the inside corner of the fold above, as the corner.

Fold in half, on the diagonal, two more times.

Measure from the point, out to a distance half the diameter of your desired pie and make a single cut.

Here we are with the dough pressed out on the parchment.

Notes

Parchment even works when cooking very hot, because the water in the dough keeps it from getting as hot as the stone. It will get a dark brown and will be brittle, but it will not burn. The dough will stick to the parchment as you are pressing it out, but it releases as it cooks.
