Eating frozen pie one slice at a time

LillianB Jun 16, 2013 05:53 AM

Is there any reason why a frozen pie can't/shouldn't be eaten one slice at a time? I baked a Boston cream pie for my dad but there's no way he'll be able to eat the whole thing in a few days. If he cut one slice at a time with a warmed knife and then put the rest back in the freezer, would that work or would it ruin the pie?

    I have certainly done this. Slicing it before freezing might make it easier for him to get out one piece at a time. If the pie stays frozen, it should be fine.

      It should be particularly problem-free in your case, since Boston cream pie is really a cake and won't freeze as hard as a fruit pie would. I agree that pre-slicing the whole thing is the way to go.

        When I do this, I normally pre-slice and wrap the slices either individually (to make it SUPER easy) or else in groups of about 3 which I take out and eat 3 days in a row. Works perfectly!
