In short, heck yeah. Pumpkin pie is traditionally made with an egg-based custard filling. Since they’re rich and high in fat, they freeze like a dream (sweet potato pie, too). And typically, the more classic the recipe (standard pie dough, no additional ingredients like chocolate, fruit or nuts), the better it’ll keep in the freezer. Homemade pies last three to four days in the fridge, while store-bought pies made with shelf-stabilizing preservatives can last a few days longer in the fridge or on the counter.
When properly frozen, either kind of pumpkin pie can last one to two months in the freezer. That means you can bake it a few days ahead of Thanksgiving to save yourself some stress come the big day. Here are step-by-step instructions for freezing pumpkin pie for future deliciousness.
