HOW TO STORE A FINISHED PIE
In many ways, pies are the perfect dish to make ahead and store in the fridge or at room temperature before serving.
Most pies firm up and set while they sit and cool. Depending on the recipe, you can rest the pie on the counter or chill it in the refrigerator. Then, once cool, you can decorate it with whipped cream and set it aside until serving time.
Some pies need to be stored, covered in the fridge. Check the individual recipe you choose for specific directions on exactly how to store a finished pie.
Scheduling all the holiday prep and cooking is enough to make anyone’s head spin. Even non-holiday weeks get packed full this time of the year. I highly recommend using a meal plan app so you can stay on top of your busy schedule.
