How to heat a frozen pie?

Eujeanie Apr 8, 2009 02:01 PM

I bought a fully baked cherry pie. We did not have time to eat it so I froze it intact.

How do I heat it up without overcooking it or having the crust be soggy? Do I thaw it out first, or cook it from the frozen state? What oven temperature, how long? Do you think it will taste ok?

    I've had success re-warming mine at 350F for about 25-30 minutes... check after 20 to see if the filling's hot, and if the crust browns too much tent with foil. Enjoy a slice for me! Cherry pie's my fave :-)

      Thanks, sounds like you did NOT thaw it first?

      The best way to thaw frozen baked fruit pies is to heat immediately for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.

          Success! Put the frozen pie into my oven (which runs hot) at 350 (so it was closer to 375 - don't worry, I cook fine this way, know how to adjust) - after 20 minutes shut the oven off and let it sit for another 10 (again a quirk of my oven). Then took it out and let it cool down a little. The crust did NOT brown too much, nor was it soggy. It was actually very good. Thanks all.
