I'm taking over hosting duties for my family's Thanksgiving meals. SInce I have to work the day before, I'm trying to get as much done in advance as possible. I enjoy making most of my dishes from scratch. I'm already thinking of desserts, and there will be a couple of pies, probably mince and apple crumb. I've never really made my own crusts before, so I'm going with the Cooks Illustrated recipe that uses the food processor and vodka.
My question to you...have you successfully made the pie crust in advance, then frozen it until needed? Or should I make it the day before, refrigerate and then make my pies?
