Making pie ahead of time

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What is the best way to make a lot of fruit pies ahead of time?  Freeze it baked?  UNbaked?  Freeze dough in discs and filling in a bag?

Short crust (wrapped in several layers of cling wrap and then placed in bags or containers) freezes well.

The fruit not so much.

May lose integrity, become mushy/weep juice, forcing you to add more thickeners and end up with a gummy texture.
