Purchasing
Look for decorator sugar crystals in the gourmet section of supermarkets or in cake-decorating supply stores.
Storage
Store Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts in the main part of the refrigerator rather than in the door or the crisper. For longer storage, freeze it before the "use-by" date for up to two months.
