Can I roll my pie crusts Monday night?

cocatyNovember 20, 2011

My pie crusts are all made - in the freezer. I need to make a pie tomorrow night for work Tuesday. I'm going to make three pies Wednesday night. I'm a messy roller and I'd be happy to only make that mess once. Do you think it would be all right if I rolled all the crusts and maybe stored them flat in the refrigerator between sheets of wax paper or parchment? I'm really not a pie baker but I had some luck earlier this year with the vodka recipe so I'm feeling bold! Thanks.

The danger is that they will dry out and be impossible to fit intot he pan...you would be hard pressed to wrap them well enough so they will stay for 3 days without becoming like cardboard. I have tried and they are never as good as if I had stored the dough and rolled them out just before baking.
Your best bet will be to make flat discs of the dough and roll them out Wednesday.

Thanks Linda. I figured there was a problem with it. Just wasn't sure what it was.
