Freezing Pie

I thought about doing this before. I never really branched out, and trying it until recently. I froze a pumpkin pie, and it is such a blessing. I am the only one who eats the majority of the food I make. It makes sense to freeze things. It’s the whole “ehhhh, is this going to really work? Or, did I totally just waste my food?” that I take issue with. I like food. I like to keep it “fresh” for as long as possible.

I have frozen some different things and had success: Different cookie recipes, muffins, biscuits, etc. Now, pie. Good pie. Portion controlled: pie. Is there anything better (food related) than portion controlled pie? Not really.

  • Once it cooled, I cut it into small pieces.
  • Placed it in the freezer.
  • Cut it into slices every few hours.
  • During the night, I resliced it.
  • After it was resliced, I torn a aluminum foil sheet in half. Using one 1/2 sheet per slice of pie. Followed by that, I stuck the slices in a plastic freezer-safe bag (I believe I used the quart size; gallon would work also).

My pie made about 11 or 12 smaller slices.

Thawing it out:
I have eaten the majority of my pie since then (it’s been a few months). I let it sit out to thaw. I give it between 15-20 minutes (rough estimate). I imagine it will stay good for a few months or until it is all eaten.

Recipe I used for pie: by Gluten Free Homemaker with some adjustments.
