You know how the fridge gets full with all the extras with holiday meals... and if I bake the pies the day before, can they sit on the counter?

It could, I suppose; I've seen less safe food handling during the holidays than that. But w/all the milk in it, it might get runny. I probably wouldn't do it for an entire 24 hour period. How cold is it outside where you live? Can you just set it outside??

I wouldn't because of the milk in it.

I usually put mine in the utility room which isn't heated until ready to eat. Once uncovered, it doesn't last long enough to worry about. If I was keeping it for more than a day, I would try to find a spot in the fridge.

Like you, I need to leave it out - the fridge is too full of other food.

But this practice is also very, very dangerous. The danger is that, because I make the pie the day before, it is out there in plain sight, tempting us, for 24 hours. And my DH (and me, I confess) start thinking that testing one little sliver will be okay. Well, maybe just another little sliver. And then....well, you get the idea. By evening of Thanksgiving, the pie looks...half-eaten. Our DSs stare at it and say, "Who ate pie before we did????" And then they demand extra whipping cream, to make up. And we, guilty as we are, give it to them. After all, we got more of the good part!

Consider yourself warned.

I have kept ours out on the counter...but...only briefly...we eat it far too quickly :p
I'd prefer to keep it someplace cool though. Cold room? Garage? A cooler?

I put pumpkin pies in the fridge because they contain milk & eggs. If it is cold enough, they can also be stored in the garage.

After thinking about this, I am sure there are very logical places to put this outside, but my first thought was: :001_huh: as I am picturing it sitting on the back porch cement with ants and bugs crawling all over it. :lol::lol::lol:

Not unless I want to get sick. It happened years ago when I was still a girl living at home. Anyway, I do put mine in the fridge, but since the temps will be in the 30's it could go in the garage.

I would recommend keeping them as cool as possible.
