It could be 450° F or 350° F and some. If your crust seems to burn before the filling is done, then most likely your oven is getting too hot. Fix it by setting your oven to a lower setting than what the recipe calls for. Set it for 350° F when the recipe calls for 400° F.

Why did my store bought pie crust shrink?
Probably the main reason that pie crusts shrink is because the dough is not given adequate time to “rest”. This resting time allows the gluten to literally relax at critical points in the pie dough process, and will play a big role in preventing shrinking once it is baked.
Can Pillsbury pie crust be left out overnight?
Yes, it’s perfectly safe. Just make sure your dough is in a covered container so it doesn’t dry out. You will also want to be sure that you use a very small amount of yeast in your dough if you are going to let it proof over night. Otherwise, your dough will over proof.

In almost all cookbooks, the recommended temperature for baking a pie or tart pastry blind is 425 to 450 degrees. Pamela A. Asquith’s ”The Fruit Tart Cookbook” (Harmon Books, 1982) even tells readers that baking a crust at too low a temperature might make it tough.

There are a couple of strategies for recooking an undercooked pie. The easiest is to cover the pie with aluminum foil, place it back in the oven and bake it at 425 to 450 F for around 12 minutes. Once the bottom crust cooks all the way through, reinsert the filling and place the top crust back on the pie as a crumble.
