when do I make the apple pie?

I have never made pie before and I've decided that I need to make apple pie for thanksgiving. So when do i make it? i know I can do the dough before hand, but do i roll it out and add the filling and bake after the turkey? that sounds like hell in the kitchen. or can i assemble the whole pie and leave in the fridge until ready to make or does everything get gross and soggy? or do i make/bake the pie in the am and let it hang out until 6pm dinner time? HELP!

you can make the dough the night before and leave it in the frig
once the turkey is in the oven, roll out the dough, add the filling, construct the pie
put in frig
when turkey emerges, brush with an egg and cream wash and bake
everyone will be happy even though it is a lot of work

I agree with Greenstuff, I make all my pies the night before. If you want to serve warm just put in warm oven while you are eating and it will be perfect when dinner done.

I make loads of pies for Thanksgiving, you will be fine. You will do what you are comfortable with but I make the pie the night before, keep in a cool place covered with parchment and its great for T-day. Its not crazy at all to want to make an apple pie for Thanksgiving.. T-day is such a busy cooking day and the oven is occupied most if not all of the day its good to know your pie is done so you can concentrate on the meal at hand. I try to do as much as possible the day before to relieve some of the stress that day.

I actually think many pies (and definitely cakes) are better the next day. An apple pie made 24 hours in advance will definitely still be delicious!

best for the dinner
interested in seeing if warming the pie beforehand gives the same great smell that a baking pie does
