Great for pies, quiches and tortes, our pie plates are made in the equivalent of a 9 inch deep dish. If you don't make your own crusts, these are designed to fit the roll out store bought brand found in the refrigerated section of your local store. We will include a gourmet recipe for a squash torte that's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Remember that our pottery is fired to 2160*F , so don't worry about putting it in the oven. Plus it goes in to the microwave and the dishwasher, too!
