Can I freeze raised pork pies?

Hi,
Having made my raised pork and veal pie I had enough filling to make a second one. However, as they are large ones does anyone know the best way to keep it. can I freeze it ( with or without the jelly ) and if so for how long?
Thanks for any suggestions

Raised pork pie

Hi,
Thank you for your welcome. A raised pork pie is made with hot water crust pastry and is to die for. If you know or can google ' Melton Mowbry pork pies' then this is what we are talking about. you eat it cold, in slices and can also be made with game as in an ' Old fashioned Raised game Pie.
hope this helps

Hello, I make pork pies and game pies using hot water crust. Complete the pie by adding the jelly stock, leave in the fridge to set up then wrap in grease proof paper then in foil.
To defrost take the foil off but leave in the grease proof.
