Step 2 in our make-ahead Thanksgiving Dessert Trying New Things in 2016!
It's a working title.
Anyway, pie! I made us pie. Specifically, I made apple pie that can be frozen, baked from a frozen state, and an all-butter pie crust made in the food processor. It was easy, tasted great, and you can literally make this today to bake next Thursday and no one will be the wiser. There are a few items such as turkey, gravy, and fresh veggies that obviously need to be made on the day of your big holiday meal, so I'm all about listing the things that can be made ahead with no sacrificing of flavor or quality. Desserts are almost all great if made a few days in advance, and this is tricky in that you make it in advance but bake it on the day of (after everything comes out of the oven, while you're eating your turkey), so it fully tastes fresh and warm and cozy. Everyone needs a little bit of cozy, right?
