Does pumpkin pie have to be kept in the fridge once it's baked?

Never made it before and plan to make it as a surprise for DH tonight.

Thanks.

  • No. It can be, but it doesn't need to be.

  • We always refrigerate it, because of the egg and such that's in it, and because it's been baked. I don't know if it HAS to be put in the fridge, but...we always do.

  • I put mine in fridge just so it doesn't go bad or get warm & yucky sitting on the counter...

  • It can be left over, but it keeps better if it is put into the fridge.

  • If you're eating it tonight, no. But if you plan to keep it longer than that, or once you've cut it, I would refrigerate it. I forgot to refrigerate one of my pumpkin pies once and it molded overnight!

  • I never put mine in the fridge after I first bake it. After we cut it if there is any leftover then we refrigerate it.

  • I should be stored in the refrigerator. You can leave it out for no longer than two hours at room temperature. It contains eggs and milk. You want to be safe.

  • i keep mine refrigerated because it has milk in it and milk goes bad very fast depending on the temperature in your house
