I like making my own pie crust, so instead of using a frozen one, I went the from scratch route. I surprisingly do not own pie weights. In stead I have a bag of dry beans that I use specifically for blind baking.

It was pretty easy to make the rest of the pie. Like Lisa, I had a lot of lumps when combining the flour, sugar, lemon zest and butter. But by the time I added the rest of the ingredients, it was fine. I just used a whisk and did it all by hand.
