Apple pie with crumble topping ahead of time?

sunangelmb | Nov 21, 2012 01:15 PM

Happy thanksgiving all. I have a question. I'm making an apple pie to bring to my moms tomorrow. It has a bottom crust (already made sitting in fridge) and a crumble top. I'm running in a race tomorrow morning, and worried about having enough time to run, get the boys ready, get myself ready, peel and slice the apples, make pie, bake pie and drive an hour to my parents. Can I make it tonight. Even if I just cut all the apples, and keep them in the fridge. Will they turn brown and mushy? I don't pre-bake my crust or the filling. It's just apples sugar a bit of flour and cinnamon in it. Should I prep the apples tonight, or prep the whole thing, but keep the crumble separate, refridgerate them both then bake it all tomorrow. Or should I just prep the whole pie, cook it until almost done, throw it in fridge, add crumble tomorrow and finish baking....help..... Or can I just bake the whole stupid thing tonight, will the top be mushy tomorrow. So many questions on how to do it.
