I have made an amazing discovery, I do NOT own a pie pan. What? I have been baking pies, all kinds of pies, and yet I do NOT have a pie pan. I went to make chicken pot pie, had all the insides ready- and realized I do not own a pie pan. (I must admit, I usually buy the premade pie shells that come in the tin.)
Well, teachers are flexible and creative, so I used a square 9×9 dish. It worked! Not the prettiest chicken pot pie, but it sure was tasty. So that got me to thinking, does a pie have to be round? My husband told me no, there are square pizza pies, so mine was fine.
That made me feel better.
