  3. Gently press mixture into a 4 inch circle on 2 sheets of overlapping heavy-duty plastic wrap; cover with 2 additional sheets of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough., still covered, into a 12-inch circle. Freeze dough 10 minutes or until plastic wrap can easily be removed.

Fit dough, plastic wrap side up, into a 9-inch pie plate, allowing dough to extend over edge. Remove remaining plastic wrap. Press dough into bottom and up sides of pie plate. Fold edges until; flute. Transfer doug-lined pie plate to refrigerator.
