I am baking an uncooked frozen apple pie. Should I thaw it first or bake from frozen?

Not to break my own tie, but King Arthur Flour agrees with me, finding that it takes so long to cook the filling of a frozen apple pie that the crust dries out. They have a wonderful freezing-apple-pie primer at http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2010/12/09/freeze-the-fastest-way-to-fresh-baked-fruit-pie/

I'd actually vote for baking it frozen and just increasing the bake time. Hoping someone else weighs in to break the tie, because its actually not something I do. My gut instinct, though, is that if you thaw it first, it will get soggy.

Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. It will turn out better.
