Should something be placed between pie weights (whether using rice, beans, or metal/ceramic beads) and the pie dough?
Should the dough still be pricked with a fork?
How do you remove the weights?
I looked up various advice elsewhere, used beans as pie weights with nothing between them and the dough, and I tried to pour them out. I lost the crust. Help!
EDIT: How much material should I use as a weight? (what measurement of rice, beans, etc.)
