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

The dough will stick to the parchment as you are pressing it out, but it releases as it cooks.Number of Servings: Time to Prepare:
