STEP 2: Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface. Grease the heart shape baking pan with butter. Roll the dough around the rolling pin( this makes it easier to cover the baking pan). Place the dough on the rolling pin, over the heart shape baking pan.

STEP 3: Do not stretch the dough to arrange it, instead lift the edge of the dough and let the dough drop into the pan (as shown in the picture below). You will notice that the dough takes the shape of the pan without being stretched. It creates a neat base.
