I have so many things to do the day of Thanksgiving, that I would like to be able to make the pies before the day of Thanksgiving. How far in advance can the pies be baked without sacrificing taste or texture? And, if baked in advance, should they be refrigerated, frozen, or left in room air?

You can freeze the unbaked pie ahead of time if you double wrap it. Just give it 15 extra minutes of baking time in the oven, just like people who buy the frozen pies at the store do. In fact, check the back of one of those pies instructions and use that to bake your own homemade frozen unbaked pie. Happy Thanksgiving!
