  2. With lightly floured, hands shape dough into a ball. On a lightly floured board roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness. With a sharp knife, cut dough 1 1/2 inch larger than the 8- to 9-inch pie pan. Gently roll the dough around the rolling pin and transfer into the pie pan. Unroll, easing dough into the bottom of the pie pan. Trim any overhanging edges.
