I have a previously frozen pumpkin pie and was wondering if it could be refrozen?

It is not recommended to refreeze. I cut a pie into slices, and wrap each individually and then freeze. I then take out what I need. I do this with cake, too.

It can be refrozen, but the quality will not be like fresh. Pumpkin pie tends to separate and the crust gets gummy. Personally, I would not do it for these reasons. Now, if our intention is to use it at a later date for something like mixing in a blender with ice cream to create a pumpkin pie milk shake, that may work.

Nope, refreezing the dough again will kill the yeast. Freeze and thaw is a one time thing so only thaw what you need.

Yes you can. Although you are de-frosting the cheddar cheese that was frozen, you are changing the composition of the cheese by baking it , and there for able to freeze the cheddar cheese again.

I rarely refreeze anything but that is usually because there is nothing left to refreeze so I was curious about the safety issue since there are so many "rumors" flying around that it is unsafe to refreeze any food.

Research shows that if food is thawed correctly (better in refrigerator) it is safe to cook and eat but (as Pghgirl stated) it may loose some of its flavor or have a slight "freezer" taste.

Scones sound like something delicious so I hope yours turn out well and, if any are left, will refreeze well.

By BRENDA MANSFIELD CADIEUX from Vernon, B.C.

Answers:

Refreezing Previously Frozen Foods

If they have been defrosted and cooked they will be fine, if not do not refreeze. They will not taste right and lose their flavor. (10/06/2010)
