Gently shape the dough, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 min.

As you roll out the dough, check if the dough is sticking to the surface below. If necessary, add a few sprinkles of flour under the dough to keep the dough from sticking.

Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate.

For the top of the pie you can cut some pieces of dough or cover all the pie.
