Place your pieces of sliced pie onto a serving dish. Whether you used the microwave or the oven, we like a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and suggest you do the same!

You can easily pass this off as your own homemade pie and your guests won’t feel bad about sitting down to eat the entire thing before getting up from your table to thank you.

Showed up on time and was still frozen just like advertised. It was a gift for a co-worker and the day it arrived was the one day she was working away from home. I was worried that it would be ruined by the time she got home. However it was still frozen when she finally got home.
