Refreezing apple pie

  • Refreezing apple pie Donna

    My mom will be traveling via plane this holiday season. She has a frozen apple pie.

    By the time she arrives at her destination (my sister's house), the pie will have thawed. Could she then cook it and refreeze it before bringing it to my house?

    There are too many days in-between for her to cook it at my sister's house and then leave it in the refrigerator.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

  • According to the New York Department of Agriculture, fruit pies can be refrozen after thawing, but their quality will degrade. It's only apples and pastry when you think about it, so not much to spoil. It will probably dry out though.

  • I am trying to find a good way to freeze chicken pot pies...I am assisting a person that is low income next week and we are working on making healthy meals for her to freeze instead of buying processed food. She loves chicken pot pies so what I was thinking was (since she has limited kitchen equipment in her house) was using my large ramekins, put parchment paper in the bottom, line... the top foil off so that the top can brown, then she can eat and enjoy. Does this sound reasonable? I have looked online and Iha ve not found anything like this so any help would be appreciated.

  • My mother is confounded by whipping-cream. Some 20 years ago she started making cream-puffs which quickly became her pastry calling card. They always came out great and were always a hit. Some 15... used before, as my and my sister’s tongues can attest to), seems to help, but even that is only temporary.

Whipping for too long causes heat build-up due to friction, which melts it (doesn’t excessive beating turn it into butter?) She tried using different bowl, a chilled bowl, a different mixer, (even

  • So over the thanks giving holiday my wife asked me to go get the apple pie out of the chill chest. However there were three different pies in there and they all looked alike, and neither of us knew which was which. We ended up cutting all of them to find the right pie, and made the blueberry pie we took to my parents house look really bad. I was wondering how can I determine what type of pie is in the refrigerator without breaking the structural integrity of the crust? Because I'm sure I'll do it again in the future.

Additionally, I would like to find a way to keep the cost reasonable and the total steps needed such that it is not too elaborate. Are there lessons learned that you have experienced when making Panna Cotta that I should be aware

  • In my great-grandmother's recipe for Open-Face Apple Pie, she writes, "Cut apples in eighths if they are not quick-cooking." I assume that this means some apples will cook more quickly than others, but I can't find a list of such apples anywhere.
