Pumpkin Slab Pie
Make sure that you don’t overfill the pie with filling. I know you’ll want to use every last drop of that delicious pumpkin pie filling, but if you fill it too high you risk the filling spilling as you carry the pan to the oven or overflowing around the crust. Depending on how deep your pan is, you might not need to use all of the filling – it spreads a teeny bit as it’s baked.
