Can I refreeze frozen, unbaked pie crust?
I have found the chowhound discussion groups very helpful over the past couple of days as I try to deal with Canadian Thanksgiving leftovers. All the posts I read were so friendly and helpful that I decided to join Chowhound! This is my first post.
I have some excess apples and cranberries that I'd like to bake into pies. I've been too busy to make dough so I bought a couple of frozen pie crusts yesterday. It was originally my intention to freeze my pies unbaked, but now it occurs to me that refreezing frozen, unbaked pie crust might not be such a good idea. Should I bake the pies instead if so, can I freeze them and for how long?
Found a great Food Freezing Guide at the North Dakota State University Department of Agriculture website that helped me answer my own question and I thought I'd share it with you.

It would appear that I can refreeze the frozen pie crust. I deduced this from the list of foods that can be safely refrozen if your freezer conks out or there is a power failure and its contents defrost. Unbaked fruit pies is on that list.
