How many days in advance can I make the pie crust?
My organic Graham Cracker Crust recipe will stay good for at least 3 days. So, I would recommend making it up to 2 days in advance of Thanksgiving. When you make the graham cracker crust, be sure to just leave it out at room temperature, uncovered.
How many days in advance can I make the pudding?
My Homemade Butterscotch Pudding needs to set in the fridge overnight, so it needs to be made at least one day in advance. But the pudding will stay good for up to a week. So, I would recommend that you can make it up to 2 to 3 days in advance, that way if you have extra pie you can still enjoy it for a couple days after as well.
How many days in advance can I cook the apples?
I would recommend cooking the apples just one day in advance. You can also do this day of as well. They just need to cool before adding them to the pie. You can speed up that process by putting the pot in the fridge.
How many days in advance can I make the whipped cream?
Homemade Whipped Cream doesn’t have any stabilizers in it, so it is best eaten the day of. My Homemade Whipped Cream comes together quickly and easily. So you can easily make this on Thanksgiving day. You can make it anytime before dinner, top the pie, and then place it in the fridge until dessert. If you do this, then be sure to cover the pie with plastic wrap so the whipped cream and pudding doesn’t dry out.
How long is butterscotch pie good for in the fridge?
If you have leftover pie, then put it in an airtight container or wrap it in plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out. It does need to be stored in the fridge because of the pudding and the whipped cream. It can be kept in the fridge for about 2 to 3 days, but the crust may start to get soggy the longer you keep it. So, eat it while it’s fresh!
Ingredients for Butterscotch Pudding Apple Pie
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
