    Instructions;


    Prepare your pastry in the dish for blind-baking.


    Prick the unbaked pastry case with a fork.


    Cover with baking paper then fill with a layer of Tala baking beans.


    Pack the beans against the sides as this is where the pastry is likely to shrink during baking.


    After baking allow the ceramic beans to cool before handling.
