Oh, these aren't frozen pies. They're made fresh, all day, every day. Marie Callender's is just as much a bakery as a restaurant.

Yes they make excellent frozen meat pies, they have both a bottom and top crust, and they come in both small and large. The small is 10 ounces and the large is 16.5 ounces. That's a 1 pound meat pie! I haven't bought them in a long time, but they used to come in chicken, turkey, pot roast (my personal favorite), and my son's favorite, chicken au gratin. I can't eat one of the big ones any more. I think my stomach shrunk when I lost all that weight.

I'm with you, Katie! They're just so easy to make, and I'm never sure what is in some of those fillings. Most of them don't say corn syrup, but when I eat a slice, I get hives all over my hand.

Thanks Caine - I wish we could get them here.

I hardly ever eat a fruit pie but when I make a tomato pie or a homemade chicken pot pie I do buy the Marie Callender frozen pie crusts. They are by far the best pre-made pie crusts I have ever had. Also, they have a mushroom and parmesan chicken pot pie that is superb!!!!!!!

Well, no one told you to "put in your thumb and pull out a plum!"
