Agreed, I always use the oven, crust comes out nice and browned and flakey

In New Hampshire, you have access to Mrs Budd's pies. Those are so good! I moved to Colorado from Boston about 8 years ago, and Mrs. Budd's pies are way up there on the list of things I miss!

New frozen convenience foods like frozen pizza have really taken a bite out of pot pies, but a fairly good percentage of the freezer cases in supermarkets are still dedicated to pies most of which are cheap and disgusting, but a good homemade one can really hit the spot.
Coffin pie Just learned something new, may never again look at my pot pie in quite the same way though

I don't know about special ordering the tins, may be cheaper just to buy a half dozen Banquet pot pies and reuse those tins.
