Freeze apple pie prior to baking?

Can you put together the apple pie and than freeze it prior to baking it. Than of course take it out in a few weeks and bake it according to the directions?

I think it would change the texture of the apples and make the pie more watery.

Nope it doesn't change a thing. I do it all the time in apple season. I put together a jillion apple pies, wrap them in plastic wrap and foil and freeze them for later. No worries, they still taste great.

Do you thaw them first or put them in the oven frozen?

I like to cook my pies in a glass pie plate, as they always come out of the oven nice and brown on the bottom. I was going to make a couple of pies and freeze them, but am afraid to freeze in pyrex and then put them in a hot oven at a later date. Do the foil pans brown the pie crust on the bottom?

Marlene, if you put waxed paper in the bottom of your foil pie plate you can easily remove the whole frozen pie and put it in a glass pie plate to bake. Just remember to peel off that paper!

And no, I don't find that foil does as nice a job on the crust as glass does.
