Can I freeze pumpkin pie??

My DD and I are making pumpkin pie today and the recipe yields 2 pies. We only need one. Can I freeze the other one? Should I freeze whole after baking? Freeze whole before baking? Or just freeze the filling and when I'm ready to use it, thaw it and put it in a pie crust and bake as normal?

TIA!

You can freeze the filling or after baking. I've done both and they turned out fine. Just don't put the filling in the pie crust before freezing, it may come out mushy after baking because it soaks into the crust. At least it did when I tried it. It was edible, just not great.

I've made mini pies and froze them after cooking, all you have to do is thaw in the fridge, add some cool whip and serve...super easy and yummy!

Thanks mommas!! I baked the pie yesterday and just stuck it in the fridge. I think what I'll do is cut it up and wrap the slices individually in seran wrap and then foil, then stick them into a big ziplock bag. That way I can take out only a few slices at a time, and make the pie last longer instead of thawing the whole thing and being tempted to eat it all

Thanks so much!
