Breville Mini Pie Maker question

RodVito Aug 7, 2012 06:19 PM

My wife recently got me one of these, and I'm curious about the logistics of it. Preferably, I'd like to do a larger batch of pie fillings, and make the
Pies and freeze them. Would it make sense to cook them first in the pie maker, then freeze? I am thinking that from there I'd just pop one in the toaster oven, like any frozen pie from Safeway or wherever.

I could just form the pies in mini pie forms, not cook, and freeze. But that defeats the purpose of the pie maker...

Anyone have any experience with this appliance?

    I have one of these and I have baked and frozen the pies before. They reheated quite well - a few mins in the microwave to thaw and a few in the toaster oven to get crisp again. The thing is with these is that you get out what you put in. Good pie dough and good ingredients make a huge difference.
