October 13, 2006, Newsletter Issue #289: Freezing Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Tip of the Week

The answer to the question concerning freezing homemade pumpkin pie isn't as easy to answer as it may seem. The pies can indeed be frozen but some people think that the taste is compromised when doing that. If you're freezing pumpkin pie, it's recommended that you remove it from the freezer within two months. Expect the consistency of a frozen pumpkin pie to change after being frozen, and it will also get "watery" when thawed. When it is time to defrost the pie, do it in the refrigerator. A better idea is to make and freeze your crust and then fill it with fresh filling and bake the day before serving if saving time is a priority.
