A friend has asked me to bake her a pie for Thanksgiving, but I'm traveling starting Nov. 11. She asked if I could still bake it for her and she freeze it. Can I??

TIA!!!

Yes, I freeze them all the time. I just wrap them in Saran Wrap and then foil. I've never had a problem.

Besides, we get them in frozen at Krogers all the time.

Thanks, Barb. How do you usually defrost them so the crust doesn't get soggy?

Just sit them out at room temp with no lid on them (or wrap) let the moisture evaporate, not let the condensation settle on the pie.

My MIL always freezes them.

after defrosting she can also pop it back in the oven for a few minutes to crisp the crust just a touch.

Thank you, EVERYONE!
She is going to be so happy. And I'm glad to be able to do something for her because she watched my toddler while my son was being born. I feel like I can't thank her enough.

Can anyone else vouch for this method of thawing a frozen pumpkin pie?  I was expecting it would be like cake where you keep it tightly wrapped until after it's fully thawed.  Which is better?  Any other tips on freezing? (I'm making my first pumpkin pie from scratch and also have two B-day cakes to bring so I'm trying to work ahead.)

 

Thanks for any info on this off topic question which hopefully is helpful for others this week too!
