How do I reheat my pie?

To reheat your pie, place the whole pie in 225 degree oven until warmed through. Alternatively you can heat by slice in microwave 22 seconds (per slice). 

These instructions are good for Cutie Pies (5 in) and Whole Pies (9 in). 

How do I bake my Unbaked & Frozen pie?

Place your whole unbaked & frozen pie in pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake until apples (or fruit) are bubbly and top is browned. There's plenty of butter in the flakey and crumb topping so don't be afraid to get some of the nice golden color on your pie as you bake!
