*Unbaked pie crust dough can be wrapped well and frozen for several months ++ in a ball shape, flattened into a disk or rolled out. A ball of dough large enough for a standard crust will take about 3 hours to thaw at room temperature; a rolled out crust, 15 minutes.
* Baked or unbaked pie shells can also be frozen. If baked, they should be thoroughly cooled before wrapping and freezing. To Defrost baked pie shells: Unwrap and thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes or in preheated 350 F. oven for 8 minutes. The oven method is preferable, as it serves to recrisp and freshen flavor. To bake frozen unbaked shells: Unwrap and place frozen shell in preheated 475 F. oven until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. *Filled pies can be frozen, preferably prebaked (the crusts of unbaked pies tend to become soggy). Two-crust pies generally give better results than those with a single crust. Be sure to cool the baked pie thoroughly before wrapping and freezing. To defrost baked pies: Let pie stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, still wrapped. Unwrap and place in preheated 350 F. oven about 30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
