How to Bake a Pie
When it comes to cooking a pie in the oven, it’s a simple process. Your oven will be set to around 350 degrees.
Most people put their pie on a cookie sheet to help give it some stability (this is a matter of preference though). A pie that’s around 9 inches big will take around 15 to 20 minutes to cook. Use oven mitts to pull the pie out of the oven.
Make sure you place the pue on the bottom rack of the oven when you’re baking it.
How to Cool a Pie
Are you trying to cool a pie? Keep the pie on the counter for around 30 minutes after you take it out of the oven. After it’s cooled to room temperature, you can put the pie in the fridge to help get it cool.
What is Blind Baking?
If you are new to baking and don’t know what blind baking is, that’s when you pre-bake the pie without the filling. The temperature should be about 350 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes.
How Do I Cover a Pie?
After a pie is done baking and cooled down, you may need to cover it. Take a dinner plate and put it over the pie. You can then wrap the entire pie, using aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The dinner plate helps to protect the pie. This is a great hack for when you need to transport a pie from one place to another.
Here is how I made, it with a few simple steps so you can make it in your own air fryer,
