Once beans or rice have cooled down, they can be stored again and used normally.

  2. Place pastry (homemade or shop bought) evenly over the base, allowing around 2 cms overhanging the side of the dish

I noticed a few comments about not being sure how to blind bake, so I thought I would share Grandma's method
