    1. Start with the Top Pastry
      Roll out one portion of pie pastry into a 15x10x1-inch rectangle. Lay the 15x10x1-inch baking pan upside down on the pastry and cut around the edges with a sharp knife.

    2. Add Cutouts
      Use small cutters to add a holiday message or a sharp knife to cut slits in the pastry to allow steam to escape from filling during baking.

    3. Crimp Edges
      Place an index finger against the inside edge of the pastry. Using the thumb and index finger of your other hand, press pastry from the outside onto your finger to crimp.

    4. Add the Top Pastry
      Gently roll the cutout pastry around a flour-dusted rolling pin. Align the rolling pin with one edge of the pan and carefully unroll pastry to completely cover.

    5. Bake pie according to recipe instructions.
