  • 1
    Place 1 pie crust in 9-inch disposable foil or metal pie plate (do not use glass). Press crust firmly against side and bottom of pie plate.
  • 2
    In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate.
  • 3
    Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute.
  • 4
    Tightly wrap unbaked pie in 3 layers of plastic wrap, making sure all sides of pie are completely sealed and unexposed.
  • 5
    Next, place pie in gallon-size freezer plastic bag; label with the following information: Apple Pie and expiration date of pie which is 2 months after pie is frozen. Place pie in freezer; pull out when ready to bake.
  • 6
    When ready to bake pie, heat oven to 450°F. When oven is preheated, remove frozen pie from freezer; cut a few slits in top crust and place in oven. Do not thaw pie because no one wants a soggy pie.
  • 7
    Bake 25 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F; bake 40 to 50 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and apples are hot and soft when pricked with a fork.

Expert Tips

  • If you’re forgetful like I am, add the baking instructions to your pie when you place it in the freezer.
  • Add a cookie sheet under the pie when it bakes to pick up any juice spills.
  • If your crust begins to brown a bit too much, just cover the top with foil after it has set and continue to bake until the apples are done.
