How to Freeze and Bake Apple Pie
Blogger and pie expert Jocelyn Delk Adams shows us how to freeze and bake an apple pie so you can have one ready when you need it.
As the holidays approach, I get busier and busier. One thing I never want to skimp on is the quality of my holiday desserts. With so many dishes to prepare on Thanksgiving and Christmas, dessert can sometimes take a back seat. Wouldn't it be so great if you could prepare your favorite apple pie ahead of time at your convenience, and then pop it in the oven right when you need it?
This tutorial will teach you the perfect way to freeze an unbaked pie so you’ll have one available in a pinch, whether it’s for a hectic holiday feast or a spur of the moment visit from a loved one. The best part of the entire process is that it’s totally painless and "easy as pie.”
To get started, place one pie crust in a disposable or metal pie plate (don’t use glass). Press firmly against the side and bottom.
Tightly wrap your unbaked pie in three layers of plastic wrap, making sure that all sides of the pie are completely sealed and unexposed.
Next, place your pie in a gallon-size freezer plastic bag and label it with the following information: Apple Pie and expiration date of pie, which is two months after pie is frozen. Place pie in the freezer.
