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

Ingredients (makes 1 Pie base)

  • Pastry
  • Rice or Beans


  1. Preheat oven to 180c. Make sure Pie tin is greased well.
  2. Place pastry (homemade or shop bought) evenly over the base, allowing around 2 cms overhanging the side of the dish
  3. Gently place a layer of baking paper over the pastry, allowing plenty of spare paper over the side. Fill with enogh rice or beans to weight the paper down.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the paper and rice (it make stick a little). Bake for a further ten minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool before adding filling.


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