CUSTARD AND CREAM PIES:

Because of their high dairy content, these pies must be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and stored in the refrigerator. They will generally last for a day or two stored this way. Whipped cream topped pies do not store well, because the whipped cream starts to weep within hours. If you're planning on serving only a few pieces of a whipped cream pie, top each slice individually with whipped cream and save the rest for later.

CRUSTED PIES:

Fruit pies such as apple, peach, blueberry, or cherry can be safely stored at room temperature because of the high sugar content and acidity, which retard the growth of bacteria. Pies wrapped well in foil will last up to two days. Refrigeration will cause the crust to become gummy.

Directions:
Directions:
Note that fresh fruit pies, such as strawberry are a different story. These delicate pies often contain gelatin and should be stored in the refrigerator for no more than one day.
