Freeze Your Pumpkin Pie and Save Precious Time (and Oven Space) on Thanksgiving
During the holiday season, eliminate the stress of an overcrowded oven by preparing your pumpkin pie in advance. Because of the rich fat content in both the crust and the custard, a pumpkin pie can remain fresh in the freezer with very little effort. Remember, homemade pumpkin pies require more refrigerator time than a robust fruit pie such as apple since their custard base contains milk and eggs. While the FDA says you can store a fresh-baked pumpkin pie on the counter for a couple hours and in the refrigerator for two to four days, freezing the pie will ensure freshness without worry of spoilage. Follow our easy five-step guide, and discover how to store your pie in the freezer for up to 30 days!
