Pecan Pie: Can I make it tonite and refrigerate it, or should I make it tomorrow morning?

I'm really trying to avoid having to get up extra early so I can put together my pecan pie and put it in the oven before my DD2 gets up. It takes so long to bake.
Can I make it tonite and refrigerate it? Or will it taste bad tomorrow if I do that? I only have the 2 things to bring to Thanksgiving dinner, and I don't wanna mess up the pie!

  • Pecan pie is always better the second day, make it, refrigerate it, and enjoy it! Don't forget the cool whip.
