How to Store and Freeze Key Lime Pie

Storing Key Lime Pie:

To keep your Key lime pie fresh and delicious:

  1. Cover the Pie: Once the pie has cooled completely, cover it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This prevents it from drying out and absorbing refrigerator odors.
  2. Refrigerate: Store the covered pie in the refrigerator for up to three days. Key lime pie is best enjoyed chilled, so keep it cool until you’re ready to serve.

Freezing Key Lime Pie:

Yes, you can freeze Key lime pie to enjoy later:

  1. Use a Foil Pan: Bake the pie in a foil pie pan if you plan to freeze it. This makes wrapping easier and helps prevent freezer burn.
  2. Wrap the Cooled Pie: After the pie has cooled completely, wrap it first in plastic wrap, ensuring it’s tightly sealed. Then wrap it with a layer or two of aluminum foil for extra protection.
  3. Freeze: Place the wrapped pie in the freezer and store for up to three months.
  4. Thawing: When ready to eat, thaw the pie in the refrigerator overnight. Avoid adding toppings like whipped cream until after thawing to maintain the pie’s texture and flavor.
