Yes, you can freeze a baked pie crust. Freeze it and then put it in a ziplock bag for a maximum of 1 month, so you don't run the risk of freezer burn.
I thaw it (out of the bag) and put it on a very low setting in the oven for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't get soggy. Use it with a filling that doesn't need baking.

Freezing items unwrapped first removes excess moisture. As soon as they are frozen, perhaps in a few hours, wrap in plastic, then foil, if you plan to freeze them for a long while. Do not use this method if your freezer is odorous, though, lest the food absorb bad flavors.
Cut them up for whatever use you have in mind (pie, etc.) Put them in a plastic container and add some lemon juice. That will keep the apples from turning brown. Then pop on the lid and put in the freezer.
