How long can you store a baked pie at room temperature?
Your pies may be kept at room temperature for up to two days; they can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two days longer if they are kept loosely wrapped. Although it is not always recommended to keep pies in the refrigerator, if you live in a warm environment, it is always safe to do so. Better safe than sorry!

What is the best way to bake a frozen pie?
When baking, don’t thaw frozen ingredients. Remove the pie from the freezer and brush off any frost. Put the pie on a baking sheet (to accommodate spillage) and bake it for 30 minutes. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°F and bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and liquid bubbles through top holes. Depending on the size of the pie, modify the baking time.
