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.

And also be sure to cover it well with plastic.

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!
