How Long To Bake Apple Pie At 400 [FAQ]

I don’t know about you, but we love apple pie in my house. We also love trying to perfect the apple pie recipe. We experiment with different variations of the classic recipe every year and get closer to perfection every year.

This year, we bake our pies at 400 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the usual 375. The results? A flakier crust and a more evenly cooked filling. You need to know if you’re thinking of baking your next apple pie at 400 degrees.

How Long To Bake Apple Pie At 400?

The short answer is that you should bake your apple pie for about 45 minutes to an hour at 400 degrees.

But of course, a few factors can affect the baking time of your pie.

  • For example, the type of apples you use can make a difference. If you’re using Granny Smith apples, which are on the tart side, you might want to bake your pie for a minute or two less than if you’re using Golden Delicious apples, which are sweeter.
  • Another factor that can affect baking time is the size of your pie dish. If you’re using a deep-dish pie dish, your pie will take longer to bake than if you’re using a shallow dish. And finally, if you like your crust extra crispy, you might want to bake your pie for a minute or two longer than the suggested baking time.

So there you have it! Happy baking!

You can make a perfect apple pie with just a little planning and patience. So let’s get started!

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. This is important because you want the apples to be cooked through and the crust to be golden brown.
  2. Prep your apples. I like to use Granny Smith apples because they’re tart and have a firm texture. But you can use any apple you want. Just make sure to slice them thinly, so they cook evenly.
  3. Make your crust. You can use a store-bought crust or make your own. If you’re making your own, roll it out thinly, so it doesn’t get too thick in the oven.
  4. Assemble your pie. Place the sliced apples in the pie dish, pour some sugar and cinnamon (to taste), and then top with the crust. Be sure to cut ventilation slits in the top of the crust so the steam can escape while it bakes.
  5. Bake for 45-60 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the apples are cooked. Let excellent for at least 30 minutes before serving, so the filling has time to set up. And that’s it!

Now enjoy your delicious apple pie!
