Making pies ??
[Return to Topics]

I am making a a banana pie and two buttermilk pies.
I want to make them today but they will not be served till Saturday. My friend is having an early Thanksgiving dinner for her son Sgt. J. D. Westbrook, 21. He is stationed at Ft. campbell, Ky. and wont be home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This will be his first time to miss.

My pie question is, how should I store them so they will still be wonderful on Saturday? I am mainly wondering about the baked pies, the banana is a refridgerated pie.

Any tips and advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Hi Lenore,
A good way to keep crust from being soggy on the banana pie is to whip an egg white and brush it on your pastry before you bake it, then let it cool and add your filling. I would wait till Friday night to do the buttermilk pies so your crust will not be soggy.

only thing i know about pies is what gramma made. i remember she was fussy about using only lard and folding crusts at least 8 times when she rolled them out. well by the time she rolled 256 layers into each crust, no wonder it was flaky. :)

Lenore, according to my research, you store them in the fridge also.

Thanks, ...but do I wrap them?
I am sure I let them cool first.
If I should wrap them;
in foil or plastic wrap?

Either wrap will suffice, as the purpose is just to keep them from drying out.

thanks, I love pies but never make them. So I am not very informed on all the procedures.
