Wanting to make raisin pies early for Christmas and not sure if they will freeze. Can you help as I hate to waste anything.
hope this reaches you in time but at least you’ll know for the future: you can freeze unbaked pies and add about 20 minutes to the baking time depending on how deep the filling is. it’s actually an advantage because the bottom crust starts baking before the filling thaws giving it a chance to get crisp and brown.
i wouldn’t freeze a baked pie because the dough loses much of its charm and all that remains is the filling and calories!
