I have a question about the recipe "Best Boston Cream Pie" from Joanne Chang. In Joanne Chang's Boston Cream Pie Recipe she calls for a "baking sheet". My baking sheet only has an approx 1" lip before a rolled edge. Should it be a baking dish?

Nope. She means a baking sheet. The cake will be thin, like for a jelly-roll. That way when you quarter the cake you'll get the four pieces for making layers.
Joanne Chang is the pastry chef/co-owner of Flour Bakery+Cafe and chef/co-owner of Myers+Chang in Boston.
yes exactly thanks for the clarification!
I used the baking sheet (more of a jelly roll pan as I am learning) and all worked out perfectly. I've attached a photo. My 90-year-old mother declared it the most delicious thing she ever had the privilege of eating and my husband not only ate it for breakfast (he said it was alot like an eclair and why not?) the next day, he requested it as his birthday cake. Thank you Ms. Chang and hardlikearmour and Food 52 for helping step outside of my kitchen comfort zone.
