store muffin and mini muffin sized pie crusts?

I am making several items that require crusts for Christmas eve and day meals (mini pecan pies, mini pudding pies, mini quiche's) and I am just not sure how to do in advance all of the crusts I will need and store them safely.

Any ideas?

Couldn't they be frozen, Triss?

I am not sure, because I am not an accomplished cook, but you can buy frozen pie crusts....so...

Triss I've seen the mini pie crust frozen in mini tins in the store(s) I think they come 10 in a bag OR just buy the ready made pillsbury pie crust you let get to room temp and unroll and this way you can cut it to form your own pie tins or muffin tins place waxed paper between them and freeze untill ready to use! That's what I would do except for the pudding pies are you making graham cracker crust for those? If so they have them in the store also already in mini tins I've also seen them at Sams club and Costco Club store as well.

I can freeze them unbaked, but I want to bake them and am not sure about freezing them after baking. Trying to save myself some time on the day I will be putting it all together.

Triss if you freeze them after you have baked them they tend to crack so be really careful if you do it that way. Best way really is to freeze them before you bake.

Thanks for that rosepetal. The breaking is what I was afraid of and I was told the same thing as well by another friend who makes pies all of the time. So I am going to prepare all of the crusts and freeze them and then do all of the baking on the same day. Should be an interesting day in the kitchen. laugh
