A pie crust shield is a baking tool that covers the outer edge of a pie to keep it from over-browning or burning while the pie bakes. You can make one yourself by gently folding a piece of aluminum foil over the outside edge of a pie plate, but the advantage of the pre-made shield is that you never have to fuss with a hot pie and can simply drop it gently into place.

Most shields are made from fairly lightweight steel or aluminum, but the best are made from silicone and offer a finish that won’t stick to even messy pies and that is easy to clean.
