Belmont Apple Pie + Belmont Cherry Pie

When we think of the holidays, we think of classic foods such as ham, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, and green bean casserole. Aldi sells all of these during the winter holidays, but it wouldn’t be much of a celebration without something sweet for dessert, and Aldi has you covered there as well.

Besides offering a range of ice cream, cookies, and other sweets, Aldi sells canned apple and cherry pie fillings and both refrigerated pie crust and frozen pie crust if you want to make your own pie. Aldi also rotates several types of ready-made pies into its stores in time for big events such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. It doesn’t get more classic than pie.

Depending on what’s in the current weekly ad, you may be able to find either fresh or frozen pies at Aldi. Today we’re taking a look at some of the frozen pie options at the discount retailer.

Belmont Cherry Pie and Belmont Apple Pie

Belmont Apple Pie or Belmont Cherry Pie cost $4.49 for a 38-oz. pie at the time of publication.

These are Aldi Finds (Special Buys), so they’re only in stores for a short time, usually during the holidays.

Both types of pie are products of Canada, and they contain no artificial colors and no high fructose corn syrup.

As mentioned earlier, they’re sold frozen, and the directions state to keep them frozen until you’re ready to bake them.

The baking instructions are the same for both pie flavors:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the pie in the oven on a sheet pan to catch any boil-over.
  3. Bake on the middle rack for 60-65 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  4. Carefully remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least two hours before cutting.

After it’s been baked, the pie can be stored at room temperature for up to three days.

Read on for a closer look at the apple and cherry pies.

The box describes this as “a gold flaky pastry crust brimming with sweet apple filing spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. A ready-to-bake classic!”

Belmont Apple Pie

Apple pie, ready to eat.

This is a classic apple pie, filled with sweet apples in a lightly spiced sauce. It was done after about 55-60 minutes in my oven, and we didn’t wait long to eat it, digging in about 30-40 minutes after I pulled it from the oven. It had plenty of thick apple slices in the filling, and we enjoyed it with whipped topping from Aldi.

The pie after baking, and eating!

This has a classic tart cherry taste and my family enjoyed it. It browned nicely in my oven and was done after about 50 minutes of baking. I didn’t allow it the recommended cooling time of two hours, instead serving it after about 45 minutes. It was warm but not hot. I wouldn’t mind if this pie had a little more cherry filling, but overall it’s a fine pie and I can’t complain. It’s especially good served with vanilla ice cream.

  1. I have had both the Belmont cherry pie and the Belmont apple pie. Both are delicious and the crust is very flaky just as the box suggest. I would really like the pies sold all year around as pies are eaten all year around!!! Bakers Square only sells pies and they stay busy all year around. Think about it

    Hello, unfortunately, I haven’t had apple or cherry pies from this company. My brother and I did buy the coconut and banana pies, and they were horrid. The taste was like old clabbered ingredients, sour, and just not professionally prepared at all. The pies had expiration day in year of 2022, so the pies should been good. Knowing my way around pastries, pies, and all. These need some refining with ingredients. Can’t recommend these flavors.

  3. Hello! Did you bake in a conventional or convection oven? I have a conventional oven and am unsure of baking time and temperature as the box instructions are for a convection oven. Thanks!

  4. I always use a conventional oven. No microwave, no toaster oven, no air fryer, etc. Stove is only place to cook in my opinion, food is so much tastier.
