Preparing Pies in Advance

There are so many tricks to help lighten the load on Thanksgiving Day food preparation! Make pies in advance is one of them. Here are some steps for how to prepare pies in advance:

  • Make your pie crust ahead of time. Whether it’s a graham cracker pie crust or a butter pie crust, you can make the crust ahead of time so you aren’t spending as much time on the day of.
  • Chilled pies vs. warm pies. The trick is to know what pies store well in the fridge and which should be served hot. If you are serving apple pie, you’ll want to make that pie the day of so you can serve it warm. If you are serving a chilled pie like key lime pie or chocolate cream pie, those you’ll want to make ahead of time so they can be fully chilled prior to serving.
  • Make a variety of pies. What I mean by this is, make a frozen pie like my frozen asphalt pie a few days before (or even a week before!). Then make a chilled pie the day before (like my no-bake peanut butter pie) and then make a pie you’ll serve warm on the day of (like a salted caramel apple pie). This will make things much easier than having to make three or so warm pies the day of!

How to Store Pies

Pies to Store at Room Temperature

Fruit pies made with sugar can be stored at room temperature for 1-2 days.

If you make crusts ahead of time, you can store a cookie crust (like a graham cracker or Oreo crust) at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Pies to Store in the Fridge

Any pie that has dairy or eggs in it should be stored covered in the fridge. This includes pumpkin pies, pecan pie, no-bake pies, etc. However, as a general rule of thumb, all pies will keep better and longer if stored covered in the fridge.

How to Freeze Pies

  • Freeze a butter pie crust before baking it. Once the pie crust is set in the pie pan, freeze it for 1-2 months prior to baking. When ready to use, remove from the freezer and bake as directed.
  • For freezing a pie you’re going to bake, freeze it prior to baking. Let flash freeze in the freezer until set (about 30 minutes). Then remove from the freezer and double wrap in plastic wrap, then single wrap in aluminum foil. Store in the freezer for 1-2 months. For fruit pies, remove from the freezer and bake from frozen.
  • For freezing no-bake pies, if they’ll have whipped topping on them when you serve them, freeze without the whipped topping. Flash freeze until set and then double wrap in plastic wrap and single wrap in aluminum foil and store in the freezer for 1-2 months. Let thaw at room temperature until it is chilled but no longer frozen. Top with whipped topping and serve.
