Making and Baking a Frozen Pie
If you know you will be needing a pie sometime in the near future, and might not want to make it at the last minute, do what I do... Here is an apple pie. I put it together several weeks ago, wrapped it carefully and froze it.
When it is time to bake, preheat the oven to 400F, place the unwrapped pie on a baking sheet to control any drips, and bake it for 90 minutes. I placed narrow strips of aluminum foil along and around the edges of the crust so they would not burn, and removed them just a few minutes before the pie was done.
You can also put together multiple pies at once and freeze them. It saves considerable time, as making several crusts at once doesn't take much longer than one at a time.
