My frozen spanakopita burst open

luckyfatima | Jun 7, 201903:45 PM     6

I made Archer's Farm frozen spanakopita according to the instructions on the back of the box and they came out like this. The instructions say to bake frozen at 425 for 12-14 minutes. They had already split at 12 minutes. How can I improve these? The inside tastes good, not stringy or waterlogged or with skimpy filling like some store bought types. But they look disastrous. Should I cook them at a lower temp? Prick them with a needle? Paint them with butter and/or an egg wash? There must be some way to make these come out looking nice, golden, and intact?
