Can you bake pies ahead of time and freeze them? I want to freeze pumpkin and apple pies. If so, how do you keep them from going soggy when thawed?
Sue, from FLA.
When we bother to bake pumpkin pie, the recipe on the can of pumpkin always fills 2 of the pie crusts from the store so we just slide them into 1 gallon zipper freezer bags, freeze and defrost when we need them. We used to bake them for Halloween, eat one and eat the other on Thanksgiving. But we've gotten out of the habit.
If you want to warm them in the Microwave oven, remember to pop them out of the metal plate and into a Microwave safe pie plate. (11/20/2004)

On apple pies. Make as usual but DO NOT BAKE. place in freezer container, when ready to bake they will look/taste like just made. been doing it for years. (09/18/2005)
