It looks like the inside crust (where the divider is) doesn't cook as much as it should. Or maybe they just underbaked the whole thing (as is too often the case <_< ). But that is easily remedied by just baking the whole thing as long as it needs. Although you do have to use fillings that require the same baking time.

Intriguing idea, though, absolutely!

Intriguing idea


Suzanne, I agree.

It would also be handy when making a whole single type of pie in cases where the different halves might be used at different times or places.

it would also be great if you needed to bake a pie filled with poison, but didn't need a very big one. you could just just make a nice half pie at the same time, to enjoy yourself while waiting for your victim to die. mind you, it would be a very good idea to mark each pie, so that you don't get them mixed up and eat the wrong one.

You could cut vents in the shape of a skull and crossbones in the poison half.

Why bake half when you can bake a slice?

Following the suggestion of Melissa Clark in a cherry pie article a year or so ago, I blind bake the bottom crust for a fruit pie to avoid the soggy/underbaked issue.

OK, pans/gadgets like this are precisely why there isn't ever a kitchen large enough for all my "necessities." :blush:

Why not simply make smaller pies? A 6" pie gives you slightly more pie than
half an 8" one, for example.
