need tips for blind baking pie crust

trolley | Oct 25, 2013 04:42 PM

i made a crust by following this recipe. http://sweets.seriouseats.com/2011/07...

blind baked the crust by following these steps:

poked holes on the bottom with a fork
lined it with foil and beans
baked it on the bottom for 12 min at 425
then for a few more minutes with the foil and beans off
let cool off for a few minutes then poured the custard
baked for 50 min

My 2 big issues:
the crust came out bumpy at the edges and shrank quite a bit. didn't get the scalloped edges i like after blind baking.

The bottom of the crust underneath was still baked but not as baked as I would like.

Can I blind bake until crisp? would that then burn my crust when I bake it the second time? I do cover the edges with foil.

I feel like I covered everything...
