I baked hand pies Sunday afternoon and I was curious how they would bake in my black cast iron muffin pan. So I made 6 muffin size ones and baked them. While they baked nicely in the cast iron, the crust wasn’t as flaky as the crust baked on baking sheets.

Small pie baked in cast iron; large baked on rimmed baking sheet

@Norcalbaker, they both look really good! What filling is inside them? Perhaps the baking sheet being thinner conducts heat more condusive for flaking puff pastry better?
