Question Can you freeze Pecan Pie?

I'm a new kid on the Discusscooking block. I've never made a pecan pie that has turned out right til now. Can I freeze it for Thanksgiving or do I have to make another one just before the Holiday?

Yes, it freezes fine but the texture of the pecans may be a little soft after defrosting. Before freezing, cover with plastic wrap, then foil. Defrost at room temperature for several hours.

You can also store pecan pie for a couple of days at room temperature and refrigerated for several days. In both cases, the pie should be covered with plastic wrap.

While it may freeze well, I think the better solution by far is to eat it and make another for the holiday. Not for any other reason than I love pecan pie.

Agreed...I also find the thought of potentially soggy pecans traumatic, at the very least.
