Pecan Pie??


Senior Member
I'm going to attempt a pecan pie for tomorrow. My question is, can I make it tonight and will is still taste fresh tomorrow? If I make it tonight, should I refridgerate it or should I just wait until tomorrow.

I never cook early, So I really have no idea what can or cannot be prepared ahead of time.

My mom ALWAYS cooks hers early and they still taste yummy. She keeps it cool until she serves it. Saves a lot of headache on the big day.

Yes it will

It will still be fresh, just be sure to cover it after it cools. I put mine in the fridge, but I like cold pie. I made pumpkin and apple pies this morning.


I'd suggest

I'd say you ought to put it in a cool area (not in the fridge) until tomorrow. If you live in a cool enough climate, you can put it in the garage or something (covered w/ foil).

If you want to heat it up tomorrow, put foil around the edge to protect the crust from burning.

My garage is like a smorgasboard right now. I've got applesauce, cranberry sauce, pumpkin crisp and apple pie out there. I've also got my stuffing prepped (vegetarian - don't worry - I don't intend to put it in the bird). If it were just a little cooler out tonight, I'd put the bird in the pan ready to go - but I don't want to take the chance on that one.
