    I just made Gale Gand's Perfected Lemon Tart (from Butter Sugar Flour Eggs). I ended up with extra crust and filling. I used the extra to fill an 8" pie pan, but I don't need that extra pastry now.

    Can I freeze the extra pie? Here are the filling ingredients:

    Eggs
    Granulated sugar
    Lemon juice
    Heavy cream
    Lemon zest

    I would think so because I've frozen lemon bars with a similar composition, but I thought I'd ask those of you who are much more experienced with baking than I am.

    Thanks!

    The filling might soften the crust when it thaws, but otherwise, it should freeze all right. Top it off with whipped cream, and nobody will complain.
