The silicone heart shape is filled with ceramic pie weights, and the unique heart shape extends further on the sides than a simple circle and looks cute to boot!
The idea for the Grill Friends Sweetheart Pie Weight came to me after I had to make a dozen pies for a big party. I struggled with using the old-fashioned beans and rice to blind bake my pie shells and I must have dropped half of them on the floor!
That was when I realized that I could make a silicone bean bag for blind-baking pie crust. Its simple to use; cut a piece of parchment paper out a little bigger than the bottom of the crust, place the Sweet Heart Pie Weight in the center of the crust and bake as your recipe directs.
When you are done, you can toss it in the top shelf of your dishwasher or wash it by hand. No more beans rolling around your drawer or falling on the floor!
