How Long to Bake an Apple Pie

Baking an apple pie at 400 degrees is best way to ensure that the pie is cooked evenly. The high temperature ensures that the filling and crust are cooked through, and the pie will be golden brown and bubbly.

A standard 9-inch pie should be baked for 45 to 50 minutes at 400 degrees. If you are using a deep dish pie plate, you may need to increase the baking time by 10 minutes.

If you are baking a frozen apple pie, you will need to add 10 to 20 minutes to the baking time. Be sure to check the pie regularly, as it may need to be covered with foil during baking to prevent over-browning.

Conclusion

After testing various apple pie recipes, we’ve found that baking an apple pie at 400 degrees for 50-60 minutes is the best way to achieve a nice, golden brown crust. This baking time also allows the apples to retain their shape and not turn into mush.
