Where can I get a deep dish pie plate for pumpkin pie? More importantly, what size should I be looking for?
My biggest pie plate is 9", but it won't hold/make a deep dish pumpkin pie. I can't find any pie plates that look bigger than what I already have. Well, I found a 9.5" pie plate, but I worry that may be too big.
To be clear, my pumpkin pie recipe has me using one 15 oz. can of pumpkin, one 12 oz. can of evaporated milk, two eggs, 1 cup of sugar and various spices. It will not fit into one 9" pie plate. I have to make two 9" shallow pies. I'm tired of those, there's not enough pumpkin in them. I'm madly in love with (good) pumpkin pies.
I could easily eat one shallow pie in one sitting. They're the best part of Thanksgiving, and stuffing/dressing runs a close second.
I'm thinking about trying one of those frozen deep dish pie crusts that come in the aluminum foil pan, just to see what happens. But it does seem like that's what I first tried using some 20+ years ago and the pumpkin wouldn't fit.
