How much time do you need to bake 2 pies at once?

The baking time required to bake 2 pies at once depends on several factors such as the pies recipe, size, flavor, oven type, and the pan used.

However, keep in mind that even if you are baking different types of pies (apple, blueberry, pecan, pumpkin) together in the same oven this will not let them taste like each other.

Besides, even if the 2 pies have different flavors and consistencies they will bake at the same rate and time as long as they need the same temperature. But you still must check the baking process of each of your pies to ensure it is going swiftly as planned.

Thus there is no need to increase your oven baking temperature according to each pie as they should be related at this level, or else you will overbake your pies

How should you bake 2 pies at once?

In principle, once you are baking 2 pies at once, it is highly recommended to place your pies on the middle rack of your oven to ensure baking evenly and simultaneously.

However, avoid baking them on the bottom rack as their crusts will burn before they are even properly baked from their middle.

But as with any rule, there are some exceptions. For example, baking 2 types of pies of completely different recipes at the same time requires placing them on different racks and then relocating or switching them between different racks during the baking process.

 That is why it is important to carefully read the recipe instructions of the pie you are baking ahead and observe carefully the baking of each pie alone and check its doneness by making the toothpick test
