I am making pecan pies for a lot of people. I only have one pie plate and live in a country where they aren't into pie. I can't get the disposable pie plates either. I thought about baking pecan pie bars but the thing I love about pecan pie is the filling and dont want to have to skimp on it!! I wanted to do a pie in a larger pan like some size of rectangle, double the recipe, but I have no idea how much longer to bake it for than a regular single pie and i can't find anything anywhere online other than standard pie bars which I don't want. Any ideas?

shira ,
 I'm sorry I'm not an expert
I have made it once before however       be sure the depth of pie is close to the same because that can actually change the texture      bake for temp and time for recipe       and watch it carefully, 

I'm bringing this back so it will get back on the list and maybe one of our more experienced bakers will notice it
our spammer has been very busy  and keeps hogging the featured space

good luck      and welcome

Shira, here'a link to a pecan pie bar recipe from the Food Network that may satisfy what you are looking for. I have not tried this particular recipe, but I don't think you can go wrong with it!

You can do the bars.  Just increase the filling a bit, I would do 1 1/2 the measurements so the filling will be a bit thicker but it will not take twice as long to bake. 
The other thing you might want to do is increase the nuts by 2 this way you get more of the nuts for the filling and crust.  After all the nuts really are the best part of a pecan pie. 

Your other option look for a recipe for a cookie called Pecan Tassie.  This is made in a little mini muffin pan can be removed and eaten in 1 bite tastes just like a pecan pie. 

Or another thought make your pies but make them in regular muffin tins, with or without a liner.  Place a bit of your crust in the pan then a bit of the nuts and your filling and bake.  Each little pie would probably be enough for 1 very dedicated pecan pie lover or it could be split. 

Good luck I hope all these ideas help.

I think that you should pour water in your pie pan then pour that in to your rectingle  pan if it takes to pie pans of water double your recipe or if it akes 1/2 of the water more then it would be double recipe plus half of one . As for baking bake as for recipe and watch it my guess is that it should take the time on your recipe plus about half more.

and here is my
pecan tassie recipe


Ingredients

Pastry:
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, unsalted
1 cup all-purpose flour
dash of salt

Filling:
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 T butter, unsalted,melted
1 t salt
1 t vanilla
dash of salt
1 cup pecans, chopped

Directions

Pastry:
Blend together the cream cheese, butter, flour and salt.
Shape into 24 balls.
Press each ball into 1 3/4 in mini-muffin tins.
Press dough into the bottom and sides with your fingers, or a "tassie tamper", if you have one.
Do not leave any holes in the crust.

Filling::
Combine eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla ans salt.
Mix well, however do not use an electric beater or tops will be crusty instead of light, crispy and nutty.
Divide pecan pieces evenly into the pastry shells.
Pour filling into shells, filling 2/3 full.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven 20-25 mins.
Cool slightly before removing from pans.
Finish cooling on a wire rach.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
