    alternatively, you could have put the dough for the crust inside the half-bowl form and then fill the resulting dough bowl with dried lentils or peas, then bake it. (in german we call that “blind backen”, which translates as blind baking.)

    Alternately, you can get a bunch of profiteroles at your local patissier. Enough of them to make a croque-en-bouche. Then you can also discuss cutting the croque-en-bouche to make circles, ellipses, parabolas,…

    At my sister’s wedding, some decades ago, the restaurateur, an immigré from France, refused to allow the usual fruit-cake monstrosities in his restaurant. Instead, he made a croque-en-bouche using maple syrup as the glaze holding it together, and decorated with local wild flowers. The profiteroles were filled with mascarpone cheese. I still remember how good it was.

    When making a demon core pie, be sure to prop open the two hemispheres with a bit of frosting.

    I’d hate to be the buzz kill for such an epic pie… but how the heck do you eat it with out making a terrible mess of everything?

    Next stop: Death Star Pie. Though I’m not sure what filling would be most appropriate.

    Could you do something similar to make a meat pie? I assume you would need meat from a spherical cow.

    Isn’t it enough that pies are already circles??

    4/3*Pi*r^2 filling
    or 4*Pi*r^2 of touchable roundness
