Hi. I usually bake my pies in a glass pie dish so I can check to see if the bottom is golden. I do tend to have to leave it in longer but it eventually browns. First question- if anyone else prefers glass, do you place it on the bottom rack? I usually just set it in the middle. Also, for anyone else who has used different types of pie pans, do you prefer a metal pan and feel secure in knowing it is browned or do I need to cross my fingers. I was thinking of trying a new pie dish to experiment with them. Thanksgiving is in three days so I don't think I'll switch for this holiday but I have another pie in mind for Christmas. Thank you!
