I realized over the Christmas holiday that I only have a larger pie plate. I have no idea where my smaller ones (9", I suppose) have gotten off to, but I believe this one I have remaining is at least 9.5". My question is, what can I do with store bought crusts to stretch them out? I injured my thumb and hand, so I'm not making much from scratch right now. I thought I could hand stretch the crust out to fit the larger pan, but that didn't work. I pre-baked the crust, and it shrunk up, so I could only use about 2/3 of the filling. I baked the rest in ramekins, and of course they came out delicious, but I was wondering if I should roll out the crusts. I don't know if there's enough dough there to pull that off, but was hoping someone else had done so in the past, and could let me know.
