How to Store and Freeze Key Lime Pie

Storing Key Lime Pie:

To ensure your Key lime pie stays fresh and delicious, follow these storage tips:

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

Freezing Key Lime Pie:

Yes, you can freeze Key lime pie to enjoy later! Here’s how:

  1. Bake in a Foil Pan: If you plan to freeze the pie, it’s best to bake it in a foil pan. This makes it easier to wrap and prevents freezer burn.
  2. Wrap the Cooled Pie: Once the pie has cooled completely, wrap it in at least one layer of storage wrap. Follow this up with at least one layer of aluminum foil to ensure it’s well-protected in the freezer.
  3. Freeze: You can freeze Key lime pie for up to three months.
  4. Thaw: When you’re ready to enjoy the pie, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. Avoid adding whipped cream or other toppings until after the pie has thawed to maintain the best texture and flavor.
