  3. Roll out pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Line base and sides of pan with pastry. Trim edges. Place on a baking tray. Line pastry with baking paper. Fill with baking weights or uncooked rice. Blind-bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and paper. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until lightly coloured. Cool completely. Reduce temperature to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
