How do I reheat the pies?
If you are purchasing our pies for a later use follow one of the cooking instructions below.
1) Oven (recommended):
Thaw overnight in your refrigerator.
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees. Remove pie(s) from plastic wrappings. Place pie(s) in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until center is hot and pastry is crispy. If frozen double time.
2) Microwave then Oven:
Take pie(s) out of plastic wrappings. Defrost in microwave for 2-3 minutes on high while pre-heating oven to 180 degrees. The center should be warm prior to removal. Remove from microwave and place pie(s) in the oven for 10-15 minutes to crisp up pie(s).
3) Microwave only (least recommended):
Take pie(s) out of plastic wrapping. Place in microwave for 3-5 minutes on high power. Using this method the pastry won’t be crispy but the pie will still taste great!

* For mini party pies, microwave on medium for 1 minute or till filling is warm and then put into a preheated oven for 5-10 minutes at 180 degree,

I bought some frozen pies and don’t remember which pies came out of which bags? How do I know which pie is which?
Each bag is labelled to identify what flavor it is however once you take them out of the bag how can you tell? Well we’ve garnished the top of the pies with animal shapes or some other shape to distinguish our various flavors! Here are the garnishes we use on each pie:
Slow Lovin Aussie – cow shape
Sweet Tweet – cat shape
Garden of Pie – triangle shape
The Biggs Apple – circle shape
Sup Lamb – fish shape
Chicken, sage and cream – rectangle shape
The Paddy – wolf shape
