A question about a recipe: Strawberry and Chocolate Cream Pie

I have a question about the recipe "Strawberry and Chocolate Cream Pie" from Oh Sweet Day!. How do you get the batter out of the pan and it doesn't loose the shape?

Sticking can be a big problem with crumb crusts. If you make the crust with margarine and butter the pan, it won't stick- unfortunately, doesn't work the other way around. The best system is to line the pan with foil before putting the crumb mixture in; you then bake the crust. Next (after it cools a bit) freeze it solid; it can then be lifted out of the pan and the foil peelded off; then replace it in the pan (or not if you're feeling brave, but it's fairly fragile after it thaws).

PS- never tried it with a teflon pie plate- might work, but you'd likely ruin the pan cutting the pie.
