convert recipe from round pan to larger retangle pan?

somervilleoldtimer | Sep 2, 2012 09:24 AM

I want to make a larger amount of the great Chow Jam Crostata recipe, using a 9 x 11 rectangle pan instead of the springform pan in the recipe. It's a great recipe that I've made a couple of times now, with very happy results. For complicated reasons, I can't simply double the recipe and use two springform pans.

I was once at a dinner with a bunch of female scientists who were talking about using Pi to turn a round-pan cake recipe into a square-pan recipe. Needless to say, I was unable to keep up with the conversation.

Normally, I would measure how much water each of the containers holds and make a rough approximation. But I would love it if someone would help me with the conversion here. I will cut the finished product into bars, like linzer bars.
