Of course you can! Just wrap it tightly with a couple of layers of saran wrap or foil.

Can you freeze pumpkin pies and pecan pies after you make them?

A: Theoretically, baked pumpkin pies can be frozen for 1 - 2 months and then thawed in refrigerator. But, it's not a good idea; the quality of a freshly baked homemade pumpkin pie is usually higher than a frozen one -- it's easiest and better to freeze the crust. Add the filling to the frozen crust (no need to thaw) just before baking and bake as usual.
When I have frozen a filled and baked pumpkin pie, I don't like the results -- custard pies, such as a pumpkin pie, get watery after thawing, ruining the filling and the crust. If you must freeze, do a trial run with your pie BEFORE you need it for a special event."

We cut the pie into pieces before freezing, that way we can take one or several pieces out at a time the night before we expect to enjoy them.
Just cover the pie with plastic wrap then aluminum foil. (12/02/2005)

Can I freeze a store bought pumpkin pie? I bought it for Thanksgiving. Will it be watery when I thaw it out in the refrigerator?
