Blind Baking

  1. The process of baking a pastry or pie crust without the filling inside it.
  2. You use it when the pastry will be filled with an uncooked filling e.g. puddings or when the filling has a shorter cooking time than the pastry. 
  3. It will help prevent the filling making the pastry soggy.
  4. The pastry is usually lined with tin foil or grease proof paper and then filled with beans/lentils to weigh it down so it keeps its shape when cooking.
