*Be sure to use one large piece of aluminum or parchment on the base so that you can simply lift it up and remove all of the sugar once the pie is finished baking and cooling. If you use multiple disconnected layers of foil on the bottom, it will be very difficult to get the sugar out.
**If you prefer not to use sugar, pie weights or dry beans will work instead
***After baking, once it cools, the sugar will be just fine to use in your next baking recipe. Alternatively you can store the sugar in a separate container and reuse for all of your blind baking needs.
