Mini Pie Pans - What to Use?
If you're itching to make a mini pie right now, there's no reason you can't use a regular muffin pan - or a mini muffin pan, if you want to get super-tiny. But if you're making mini pies on a regular basis, I think the best kind of pan is a mini cheesecake pan. Why? Because the bottoms come out. So you can push your pies up from underneath and not risk damaging or destroying them while you're taking them out. Just remember that they're deeper than you need them to be, and make your pie shells accordingly
