Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I bake a frozen, unbaked pie?
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Thaw the pie 30 minutes prior to baking. Frozen pies take a little more time to bake.
- Remove from box and remove plastic wrap.
- Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch the juices.
- Normal baking time is 1 ½ hours. Individual oven temperatures may vary. When the juices bubble it will ensure that your pie is done. Bake your pie for the full time required. Note: If your pie is browning too quickly lower the temperature slightly.
- For apple pie only, test for doneness by inserting a small knife into the center. If there is any resistance, continue baking, retesting every ten minutes.
- Carefully remove pie from oven and allow it to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
- Place the pie in an oven at 200° for 20 - 30 minutes or heat a slice in a microwave for 30 seconds.
- Place the pie in a gallon size freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. To thaw, remove from plastic bag and set out at room temperature.
- Pies can be stored from 5 to 7 days from the day it was baked.
- Our pies contain zero trans fats.
6. Can aluminum pie tins be returned?
- Aluminum pie tins (from the JPC) may be returned, however we recycle them, and we'd like to encourage you to do the same. At some recycling facilities, because our pie tins are made with a heavy grade aluminum, they can bring a pretty penny. :)
- There is no refund offered for pie tins that are returned.
Suggestions and Tips
- Crumb top pies retain their crispness best when stored uncovered at room temperature.
- Cheese and apple pie? Place two thin slivers of sharp cheddar cheese on top of a slice of apple pie. Heat slice in a microwave for 35 seconds.
- When freezing a baked pie, slide the pie into a gallon size freezer bag.
