I imagine you could use a bread pan with equal success as well. =)
this sounds like a good plan. i tried to make pie in a square pan but the edges wouldn't stay up while it cooked. You could just do a rustic tart on a flat pan using just the dough to hold the filling.

This is ingenious.

But making a square pie is like breaking the law to me. That's what happens when you learn pi at school. It's gotta be circular!

I thought a cobbler was a guy who makes shoes, and whose kids go barefoot?

That's true, but they used to work in a bakery as a second job for added income (for kids' shoes).
