Help: Frozen Pies

ta0126 | Jan 4, 201505:43 AM     12

i recently purchased a couple of frozen unbaked apple pies. the first time i followed the directions to the letter and the top crust was brown on top but not cooked through. the bottom crust was almost completely raw. the second time i turned up the temperature. the top crust was better but the bottom crust was again raw and doughy. both times i basically scooped the filling out and threw away the bottoms.

have you been able to cook a frozen unbaked pie properly? these were dessert pies but i gess the same would apply to savoury meat pies. maybe you have a trick to share? defrost or not, baking sheet or not, cover with foil, change the temperature?
