Worried my pie pan will break

rds246 | Nov 15, 2011 06:01 PM

Most pie recipes I use call for putting the crust (in pie pan) in the fridge or freezer to chill before filling it. I understand the purpose of this, BUT my favorite pie pan is my glass Pyrex pan, and I am worried that putting a cold glass pan into a preheated oven will turn into a messy disaster, a broken pan, and no pie.

How do others deal with this situation? Am I being overly cautious? I have definitely broken pyrex by putting a too hot pan into cold water...
