I don't know that all coffyns would have been baked in forms or pans.
If one uses a sturdy pastry made with lard and enough flour, you can raise
 pastry case that is strong enough to survive without the need of a pan.
(This is pastry as container.)

Take a look at the Tudor Cooks Blog-- there's a video there plus pictures


Also you might run through Ivan Day's photos and recipes for his various 
pies and pastries.


He has listed a new course in pastry and pie making.
