I'm about to attempt my first pie baked from scratch. So...can someone help me with this blind baking thing? I think I get how to do the base, but do I have to blind bake the pastry going on top as well? How do I do that? TIA!

I've never blind baked the lid, and it's always turned out fine
My blind baking method is just baking paper with some rice to weight it down. Not sure if that's normal, but it's always worked for me.

Yeah i blind bake with baking paper and rice. You can used rock salt or beans too.
You dont need to blind bake the top.
Rest your pastry for an hour or so in the fridge
make sure your pie filling is completely cold before putting it in the shell.
make a small slit in the top of the pie before baking to let any steam escape.
What type are you making?? I LOVE pie
