How Do You Bake Frozen Pie Crust

Food Lion Grocery Haul | With Prices!

Bake a frozen pie crust by first determining how the crust is to be used and then either preparing and baking, or filling and baking. Some recipes call for pie crusts to be baked before use, while others allow the crust to bake with the filling.

Frozen pie shells for custards, pudding pies, ice cream pies and similar desserts must be baked before filling. Check the instructions on a store-bought pie for exact baking directions. Basic instructions begin with preheating the oven to 375 F. Allow the pie crust to thaw for 15 minutes, and then place it on a baking sheet. Prick the sides and bottom crust with a fork to prevent the crust from shrinking while cooking.

To ensure the crust keeps its shape during baking, fill it with a heat proof material. A pie plate the same size as the pie is a good option. Alternately, line the pie crust with aluminum foil or parchment paper, then fill the crust with dried beans or rice. Bake the pie shell for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, and cool completely before filling.

For recipes such as pumpkin pie, quiche, pecan pie and other one-crust delights, simply mix the filling and pour into the pie crust. Follow the directions from the recipe for preheating the oven, and place the pie shell on a baking sheet. Bake as directed.

Wholly Gluten Free Pie Shell

  • $5.99 to $6.99 for a package of 2
  • Frozen in aluminum pie tin
  • Brown rice flour, water, organic palm oil, organic cane sugar, tapioca starch, potato starch, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda, monocalcium phosphate, guar gum

Tasting notes: Buttery in flavor, flaky, delicious, hard to believe that it is gluten-free.

Structure notes: A little bit of shrinkage with pre-baking, as expected, crust held pumpkin pie perfectly well.

RECOMMEND. When I first reviewed the Wholly Wholesome Gluten-free crust in 2017, I gave it a very poor rating it tasted bad and fell apart. Since then, the company has reworked their recipe and now I can wholeheartedly recommend this crust if you are looking for a gluten-free option. The crust is delicious and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and a regular flour crust.

Marie Callenders Pastry Pie Shell

  • 8 ounces each
  • $4.79 for a package of 2
  • Frozen in aluminum pie tin
  • Enriched wheat flour, soybean oil, water, hydrogenated soybean oil, dextrose, salt, sodium metabisulfite

Tasting notes: Completely inedible. I spit it out as soon as I took a bite. I taste tested pie shells from 3 different packages from different stores and they were all terrible.

Structure notes: Of the 3 packages I bought, in each package one shell was cracked or broken in places right out of the package. Every blind baking test resulted in a pie where the rim cracked away from the rest of the pie.

AVOID. By far the worst tasting of all the pie crusts I tested.

Wholly Wholesome Organic Traditional

Vegan Pie Crust – Spelt No Wheat – The Alkaline Chef #49

Wholly Wholesome is a natural foods brand available throughout the U.S. at Whole Foods and grocery stores that carry natural food brands.

  • 7 oz each
  • $5.99 for a package of 2
  • Frozen in aluminum pie tin
  • Flour, palm oil, water, cane sugar, sea salt

Tasting notes: Good taste, right amount of salt and sugar, tender and flaky, can keep eating

Structure notes: Did not crack or break with pre-baking. When baked with a pumpkin pie filling, it held up well. No soggy crust. Even though it is a deep dish pie crust, it doesn’t hold as much filling as my homemade pie crust, so when I cooked up a pumpkin pie with it, I had about a cup of leftover filling.

RECOMMEND. I would use this pie crust. The taste is good. I kept nibbling on the crusts I blind baked for this test. The crust holds up well for both blind-baking and baking with a pie. Would be good for a sweet pie or a savory pie such as a quiche.

Trader Joes Pie Crust

The Trader Joe’s pie crust was the one most recommended to me by my friends. It has almost as much dough as one of my homemade crusts. Its one issue is that it is hard to unroll.

  • 11 oz each
  • Enriched flour, Palm Oil , water, butter, sugar salt

Tasting notes: Flaky with notes of butter, close to the taste and texture of homemade crust when tasted on its own after blind baking. Holds up well with pumpkin pie filling.

Structure notes: Followed directions to defrost overnight in the refrigerator and then let stand for 45 minutes at room temperature. Completely broke apart when I tried to unroll, beyond being able to be patched together.

So, I gathered up the dough in my hands and squeezed together until I made a solid disk. Then I rolled out the disk between the two pieces of parchment-ish paper that the pie crust came rolled up in. Refrigerated it for 10 minutes, then placed it in a pie plate and blind baked.

When I baked with the second crust from the package, I let it defrost on the counter for 4 hours. Then I unrolled it carefully. There was still cracking, but as I saw the cracking I could use the warmth of my hands to fuse together.

If I were to use again, I would let come to room temperature for a couple of hours first, and microwave for 10 sec after that, in order to make it easier to unroll.

This list only contains premade gluten-free pie crust brands. You wont find any pie crust mix that you have to make yourself. In the description, Ill let you know which brands are frozen and which dont require refrigeration. Because most will have to be refrigerated or frozen, many cannot be purchased online. But if you can have a brand shipped, Ill link to an online retailer!

To find the best ready-made gluten-free pie crust for you, read through the descriptions for each product. Here youll find out what pie crust varieties the brand makes, including traditional, graham cracker crust, chocolate crust, and more.

Safeway Brand Signature Kitchens

This is the Safeway grocery store generic version of the Pillsbury Pie Crust. By the way, many national grocery chains make generic versions of national brands. You can tell which brand they are imitating by looking at the ingredient list.

  • 7.5 ounces each
  • $2.99 for a package of 2
  • Comes refrigerated and rolled
  • Enriched bleached flour, wheat starch, lard and hydrogenated lard with BHT added to protect flavor, water, sugar, salt, xanthan gum, yellow 5, red 40, citric acid, sodium propionate, potassium sorbate, soy flour

Tasting notes: A little less flavorful than the Pillsbury Pie Crust it is imitating. A little less yellow and a little more red in color. The flavor and consistency reminds me more of a cracker than a pie crust. Edible.

Structure notes: Unrolls easily and presses into the pie pan easily. A little cracking at the very end of the unrolling. Bakes up well without cracking.

OKAY. Similar enough to the Pillsbury brand, not quite as flavorful. Edible, nothing special. Uses preservatives and food dyes.
