OK. So today because it is a bank holiday and I am off, I had too much time on my hands . So I made squash pie, but the recipe makes three pies supposedly but I have deep dish pie pans so it only made 2. What to do, What to do?????

So with 1 empty pie shell I thought coconut custard pie(my favorite) then chocalate coconut pie or the almond joy pie. The recipes I found did not measure up to want I wanted. So I made my own.
