Can I bake a pie in an aluminum pan?
One key to baking a great pie is having a foil pie pan. Whether you use glass or a sturdy metal pan, you need a pan that conducts heat well, and will hold up to any weighty filling you use. In these cases using a disposable aluminum foil pie pan is a substitute that can work just as well.
Does it take longer to bake in aluminum pans?
You might not know the gauge of the sheet of metal used to make your bakeware, and that’s okay! The important thing is to remember that thicker aluminum pans heat up more and your baked goods will bake faster in a thicker metal pan than in a thinner metal pan.
Do I need to grease an aluminum pie pan?
Do not oil or grease glass pie plates. Thin, aluminum pie pans are a poor choice because they cook unevenly. If you have to use them, double them up and use two. The shiny metal pans keep the crust from browning properly.
Is a glass or metal pie pan better?
Although metal pans conduct heat better, glass more than makes up for that because it is clear, so radiant energy can pass through the pan and help the crust bake. That means that although glass takes slightly longer to reach the same temperature as the oven, it cooks crusts faster and darker.
Are aluminum pans good for baking?
Aluminum – This is the most commonly used metal for cake pans. It has superior abilities in conducting heat, producing a cake that is evenly risen. It is also an inexpensive metal, making it a cost-effective option for bakers needing a large amount of cake pans. Lightweight aluminum cake pans make beautiful cakes.
Can I bake a casserole in a disposable aluminum pan?
Absolutely. Just make sure it’s the same dimensions that the recipe calls for. And because the walls of the fool pan are thinner, cooking time may vary (a could minutes less usually).
How do you bake in aluminum foil pans?
How to line a baking pan with aluminum foil?
- Cut a generous amount of foil.
- Flip the pan over on the counter.
- Remove the mold carefully while protecting its shape.
- Flip the pan over again.
- Press gently in the corners.
- Grease the foil if the recipe calls for it and you are all set to pour your batter and bake.
How do you keep pie crust from sticking to the pan?
One of the most effective things you can do is submerge the bottom of your pie plate into some hot water for around 10 to 20 seconds. Doing this helps to re-melt any solidified butter, greasing up the pan again, and releasing the crust from sticking to the pan.
Should I grease my metal pie pan?
As I noted in the Pear & Gruyere Tart recipe, you absolutely need to grease the stainless steel tart pan well before pressing the dough in, or you risk tart cracking and breaking when you try to take it out. Pies, on the other hand, have thinner, flakier doughs and bake in pans with smooth, gently sloped sides.
What can I make with aluminum pie pans?
Helpful Uses for Aluminum Pie Pans That Don’t Involve Baking
- Make an instant colander.

- Contain the mess from kids’ projects.
- Make trays for craft supplies.

Can you bake an apple pie in a metal pan?
I think metal pie pans are the best because they distribute the heat well, which, in turn, makes the pie shell nice and crisp. Sometimes I use glass or porcelain pans, but primarily for crumble pies that do not have a shell. I usually bake pies at a high temperature to begin with and then reduce the heat.
What can I bake a pie in if I don’t have a pie pan?
An eight- or nine-inch cake pan is an easy pie pan substitute, as it has the same shape and volume as a pie pan. Be sure to line the bottom with a piece of parchment paper before adding the pie crust and blind-baking to make removing after baking easier.
It’s always a good idea to bake pies on a baking sheet. Not only does it make it easier to get the pies in and out of the oven, but a sheet pan will catch any filling that bubbles over.
