Keep frozen until ready to enjoy. Bake before serving. For food safety and quality cook before eating to an internal temperature of 160F.
1. Remove pie from freezer. Place oven rack in center position. Preheat oven to 350F. 2. Remove frozen pie from box, and remove plastic overwrap from pie. Do not remove pie from original pan. Open center hole of pie and cut 4 to 6 slits in top crust. 3. Center frozen pie on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil, and place in preheated oven. 4. Bake pie for 55 to 65 minutes until crust is golden brown. 5. Remove pie on cookie sheet from oven using oven mitts. Never handle by edge of pie pan. 6. Serve warm in 30 minutes or cooled after 2 hours. Pies are best when freshly baked.
Store loosely covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
For a golden, shiny, crispier crust, beat one egg with a whisk and apply with a pastry brush to top crust of pie prior to baking.
Please Note: Baking pie on cookie sheet helps crust to bake more evenly. Because ovens vary, adjust time and temperature as necessary.
