Puffy pie crust - What did I do wrong (right?)

This is the CI Vodka crust, but I swapped out leaf lard for the shortening. I've made this particular crust several times without this happening. The only variable is this pie plate... I've never used one with a lip before. I crimped the edge with my fingers as normal, but all of that gorgeous detail went away! The crust is flaky and delicious, but not very pretty.
