Then, on a lightly floured surface, roll one disk of dough into a 1/8-in.-thick circle and transfer it to a 9-in. pie plate. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Once your filling is ready, pour filling into the pie plate and place the remaining dough on top of the filling. Trim, seal and flute edge and cut slits in top. Ta-da! Your pie is ready for the oven.
