Freezing Unbaked Fruit Pies - ???

CaresBakery | Jul 12, 2008 11:47 PM

I just made two cherry pies and froze them before baking them.
When reading up on this, I kept finding advice that said NOT to cut vent slits or brush with the egg wash before freezing because both of these things should be done right before baking.

Could somebody tell me why?
Will something happen to the filling or crust if I DO cut the slits and brush with egg wash before I freeze the pies?

Thank you very much for your help!
