There’s nothing like a slice of deliciously warm apple pie to bring a delicious meal to a close.
Even the most experienced apple pie enthusiast cannot finish an entire apple pie, especially if you have eaten a large meal like prime rib.
While you can eat a cold or room temperature slice of pie, like crab cakes, apple pie is a dish best served warm.
How to Reheat Apple Pie
Reheating apple pie is os easy to do. Once you find your favorite way of reheating apple pie, you will never have to eat a cold slice of pie again.
How to Reheat Apple Pie Using the Oven
Reheating apple pie in the oven is the best way to reheat it. The oven method works for reheating uncut or sliced apple pie.
The crust will toast up and pair perfectly with the warm apple filling.
To heat your apple pie in the oven, heat your oven to 350°F. If your apple pie was refrigerated, allow it to come to room temperature.
Place the apple pie on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake it for 15 minutes.
Feel the apple pie’s crust to ensure it is your desired level of toast.
If the pie needs to toast more, bake the apple pie in 10-minute bursts until the crust is crisp.
To test if the filling is warm, insert a skewer into the uncut apple pie and let it sit for a few seconds.
Remove the skewer and touch the bottom of it. If it is hot or warm, the pie has been successfully reheated.
If your apple pie is sliced, you can use clean fingers to feel if the filling is warm.
How to Reheat Frozen Apple Pie Using the Oven
Freezing apple pie can extend its shelf life. That being said, if you have frozen an apple pie, the best way to reheat it is in the oven.
To reheat your frozen apple pie, thaw it in the fridge overnight. Heat the oven to 350°F.
Place the apple cookie sheet and gently tint it with aluminum foil.
Do not tightly wrap the pie with foil, or the crust will become soggy.
The foil will prevent the apple pie’s crust from burning before the apple filling is heated.
Therefore, your apple pie will be moist on the inside and have a crispy crust.
Bake the apple pie for 15-20 minutes. Depending on your oven, your pie may reheat faster or slower, so check it at the 15-minute mark.
Remove the apple pie from the oven once it is thoroughly heated, and let it cool slightly before serving it.
How to Reheat Apple Pie in a Toaster Oven?
Reheating apple pie using the toaster oven is the same as reheating it in the oven—however, the toaster oven’s size and its ability to contain heat speed up the reheating process.
To reheat your apple pie in a toaster oven, allow your apple pie to come to room temperature.
Heat your toaster oven to 350°F. Bake the apple pie for 10 minutes.
If your apple pie is still cold, loosely tent it with foil to prevent the crust from browning too much and bake it for another 5 minutes until the pie is warm.
Let the reheated apple pie sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving it.
How to Reheat Apple Pie Using the Microwave?
Although the microwave is convenient for reheating foods, it will not keep the apple pie’s crust crispy.
In addition to this, the microwave is best for reheating slices of apple pie in the microwave. However, you can heat a partial pie in the microwave.
Yes, you can cover the apple pie with plastic wrap to make sure the heat is distributed evenly.
But the apple pie’s crust will be soggy as the plastic wrap seals in moisture.
To reheat apple pie using the microwave, place it onto a microwave-safe plate. Heat the apple pie in 30-second bursts until it is warm.
If you are reheating a partial apple pie, make sure it is not in a metal pan.
Place the apple pie onto a microwave-safe plate and heat the apple pie in 2-3 minute intervals.
Heating the pie in intervals will allow you to monitor hot spots and adjust the slices of apple pie if necessary.
How to Reheat Apple Pie Using the Air Fryer?
Air fryers can reheat many foods, including rotisserie chicken, crab cakes, and apple pie.
Best of all, you can reheat a slice of apple pie or the entire pie in the air fryer.
Place the apple pie onto a sheet of foil and crumple it around the apple pie.
The foil will prevent the appel pie filling from spilling out into the air fryer’s basket. Turn your air fryer to 325°F and let it run for 5 minutes.
Add the slice of apple pie to the air fryer’s basket and cook the apple pie for 3 minutes until it is thoroughly heated.
To reheat a whole or partial apple pie in the air fryer, set your air fryer to 325°F and let it run for 5 minutes.
If your pie is not in a heat-safe container, place it into one.
Place the apple pie into the air fryer’s basket and cook it for 10 minutes.
If your apple pie is still warm, continue cooking it and checking it every 5 minutes until thoroughly heated.
Let the apple pie sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving it.
A slice of warm apple pie will satisfy all of your cravings for something sweet.
Unfortunately, it is one of those pies that tend to disappear in a matter of minutes. So, if you have leftover apple pie, consider yourself lucky.
Nevertheless, you should not eat cold or room-temperature apple pie.
This is because you will not get all of the flavors of the apple pie if it is not warm. Luckily you know how to reheat apple pie the right way.
