Can I refrigerate a pie crust that I've baked in the oven?

I have to make a few pies for Thanksgiving. I plan on baking them and then putting the egg wash on top of the crust to seal the crust. Can I do this and then put the prepared crusts in the refrigerator?

I agree with June. Treat an unfilled pe crust as you would a crisp cookie; sealed in an air tight tin.

You can try. I think they'll get soggy from the moisture in the fridge. You'd be better off putting them in a cool place in tightly closed cooky tins. And I wouldn't put an egg wash on them in advance.
