Pumpkin pie base froze out on the porch: help me rescue it?
My pumpkin pie recipe made WAY too much filling for my slightly slumpy crusts, so I put the extra custard in a bowl and put it out on the porch (the fridge was, uh, a little full) and then proceeded to forget about it until tonight. I took off the cover and lo and behold it was frozen :(
So now I have about 3 qts of uncooked custard that is full of icy shards. Can it be rescued for anything? If I thaw it out in the fridge, can I bake it, or has its chemistry been irreversibly changed?
Thanks for opinions and help!
