Use and care:
Carefully place the rolled round 9-inch pie crust on top of the desired side of the stencil. Massage the dough so that the heart-shaped dough that forms when you press on the stencil can be removed from the crust leaving a heart-shaped hole in the crust. Do this for all 8 hearts. Then, while the crust remains on the stencil, transfer the crust to the top of the filled pie and set it down over the center of the pie. Gravity and your fingers should gently work the crust off of the stencil and onto the pie.
This pie crust stencil is made of sturdy food-grade plastic and can be machine or hand-washed and dried.
