You can make the crust, roll it out, and line in the pan in advance. A day in advance will be fine. Just be sure to keep it in the refrigerator.

You can stack them if you need to. I line each pie plate with waxed paper and then stick the stack in a 2-gallon baggie with the air burped out. They'll keep a few days like that in the fridge.

Thank you! Great idea. I don't need mine until Friday. I think I will make the crusts on Wednesday. That will make things so much easier. Thank you all for you advice! Happy Thanksgiving!
