Storing fruit pies

My husband made a peach pie today. What is the best way to store it once cooled? Thanks.

  1. Cover it loosely with tin foil (not air-tight) and either leave it out of the reach of the dogs and children on the very back of your counter, or put it on top of your plates in a cabinet.

    I think it's so great that you asked, because it kills me when people refrigerate or plastic-wrap pie. That is just asking for a gloppy mess, and the texture of the crust would be absolutely ruined.

      How did you know that my dog, who is the pickiest eater ever, went nuts for the pie crust?

      Thanks for the quick reply. I'm a cake and cookie baker, but don't have the patience for pies really.

        How was it the next day? I want to make the Moosewood Dessert cookbook's peach pie in a gingerbread crust for my coworkers and I am wondering if I can make it the night before. It is hard to carry a pie fresh from the oven on the subway in the morning!

          Wow - that sounds amazing - do you happen to know if the recipe is on line - or might you paraphrase when you have time? Love the idea of the gingerbread crust.

            Do a Google search for Peach Pie in Gingerbread Crust

              Thanks - I was being lazy - found this - - doesn't mention it being the Moosewood recipe though.

                That looks like it! It's delicious. I've made three now.
