    What is the best way to make a lot of fruit pies ahead of time?  Freeze it baked?  UNbaked?  Freeze dough in discs and filling in a bag?

    Short crust (wrapped in several layers of cling wrap and then placed in bags or containers) freezes well.

    The fruit not so much.

    May lose integrity, become mushy/weep juice, forcing you to add more thickeners and end up with a gummy texture.
