Quick question: Apple Pie, Bake/Freeze/Serve or Freeze/Heat/Serve??

We are baking for Thanksgiving and we have two apple pies ready to put in the oven but I thought I would check first. Is it better to cook these today and then refrigerate and/or freeze till Thanksgiving or refrigerate and/or freeze till the day of and then heat and serve.


Edit: I see there's a thread on this so it looks viable to freeze and then heat and serve. THe bottom crust is store bought the upper crust homemade w/ a little baking powder. I guess it should be allright.

Personally I would freeze uncooked, then cook a day out of Thanksgiving and refrigerate, and reheat on the day. You'll need your oven on the day for the main course. Reheating won't take very long then.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Yeah that's what I figured and so I froze them...Id rather cook them recently so they taste fresher. Also there was an issue of liquid oozing out of the apples when you freeze them first, so I will let you know on that. The apples in the filling are fresh so that may be an issue.
