In this video, Mahalo cooking expert Stacey Hicks shows you how to roll and form pie dough.

What You'll Need

* Pie dough
* Flour
* Cutting board
* Rolling pin
* Pie pan
* Paring knife

1. Cover your work surface lightly with flour. Be careful not to use too much flour; it can cause the dough to become tough.
2. Set your dough in a ball on your work surface. Sprinkle with some flour. Be sure to flour the rolling pin as well.
3. Working from the middle out, roll the dough into a large circle, until it is uniformly about 1/8 inch thick and slightly larger than the diameter of your pie dish. 
4. Try to roll it into as close to a circle as you can get. Remember to lift the dough off the work surface several times to make sure it isn't sticking.
5. To transfer the dough to your pie tin, place your rolling pin on the edge of the dough and roll the dough onto the pin. Place the pin on the edge of the pie tin and roll the dough onto the pie tin.
6. With some flour on your hands, press the dough into the bottom of the pie tin.
7. Trim the excess dough away with a paring knife, leaving a little left to hang over the edge.
8. To crimp the edges, fold the excess dough over onto the lip of the pie tin. With one finger on the outside and two on the other, pinch the dough together. Continue all the way around the pie.
