Can I Assemble Apple Pie Ahead?

If you're trying to get a head start on some baking and wondering if it's OK to assemble an apple pie and bake it the next day, we feel you. It may sound easier to put an apple pie together beforehand, then bake later. However, you may want to reconsider if you hope for a super fresh taste.

We don't recommend assembling an apple pie before baking it at a later time. If made ahead without baking, the pastry may become too wet and be soggy after baking. The best way to make your apple pie the day before you serve it is to bake the pie completely, then chill it overnight. Let the pie stand at room temperature before serving.
