Sur La Table
No other season sees such a flurry of pie-making as fall and early winter. What can we say? Pie hits the spot during the holidays. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, pie is always welcome.
Whether that's a pie loaded with pecans, overflowing with apples, a chess pie, or savory pie (including the likes of every pot pie imaginable), the only thing more assured than the pie's deliciousness is that you'll definitely need a pie plate to hold it.
When it comes to choosing a pie plate, the options for expressing your personal style now seem boundless. You can select a glass pie dish with dramatically scalloped edges, a deep dish pie pan, earthy stoneware (can't say no to a good ceramic pie plate), mini pie pans, and even a trusty Pyrex pie plate. There are so many types of pie plates to choose from that you'll sooner run out of pie recipes.
Since part of the joy of baking is sharing, scoop up one (or a few) of these pretty pie plates that'll make you want to bake more this fall. And, may we suggest raiding our recipe box of savory pies? The deep-dish pie plates are especially begging to be filled with hearty pot pies, shepherd's pies, and the one-off Frito pies and and crab pies.
Whichever pie plate (or plates) you choose, these picks are sure to get you in the spirit of the season. Just make sure to give us a ring when you're done baking. We'll happily help you polish off a slice or two.
