It’s Thanksgiving and you’re going to make the piecrust from scratch, goddammit. Here, a genius way to quickly crimp the edges—no uneven thumbprints required.

What you need: A pearl necklace. (We’re talking the cheapo one you have in your costume jewelry drawer.)

What you do: Unhook the clasp and gently press the pearls along the perimeter of your piecrust. Remove.

The result? A perfectly even pattern. Seriously. It’ll look store-bought.
