Caring for Your Pie
OUR PIES are made with fresh and high-quality ingredients and without artificial preservatives. Our fruit and custard pies are best served at room temperature, but please follow these instructions to maximize your pie's shelf life and optimize taste.
Storage & Refrigeration:
- If you purchase your fresh fruit pie 2 or more days before you are going to eat it, refrigerate it until about 4 hours before you plan to serve it to give it some time to come to room temperature.
- If you purchase a custard pie (including Chess, Sweet Potato, and Pumpkin), refrigerate it after 1 day, and bring it out about 4 hours before you plan to serve it to bring it to room temperature.
If your pie is still quite warm when you pick it up, open up the box when you get home to give it additional cooling time. Do not refrigerate until it has come down to room temperature.
- Cream pies, including Banana Cream, require refrigeration until shortly before serving. If you have to transport it a long way, keep it as cool as possible and try to limit the un-refrigerated time to an hour to avoid your cream pie softening to the point of being difficult to serve. For longer trips, consider a cooler or a cardboard box with an ice block or bag.
- Quiche should be refrigerated and reheated (unless being served within 2 hours of pick up). Take your savory pie from the fridge 1-2 hours before you plan to serve it to bring it to room temperature. Reheat your pie in a preheated 300° oven for 7 -15 minutes and until a knife inserted near the center is warm to the touch. Our savory pies are fully cooked before being heated; the heating is intended to warm it to a temperature that makes it most delicious, and not to cook it further.
Reheating your pie:
Preheat your oven to 300° and warm the pie for 7-12 minutes depending on desired temperature.We hope you enjoy your pie as much as we enjoyed making it for you!
