so today i was making pies and pumpkin whoopie pies, and ended up with some extra crust, pie filling and cream cheese frosting. what to do, what to do, with all these leftovers. this is what to do:
- for extra pie crust and pie filling, make bite size pies! fill mini muffin pan cups with leftover pieces of crust dough. scoop in a bit of pie filling. bake with the big pies, but take out earlier. these mini pies are delicious and make a good pre-thanksgiving snack
- for just extra pie crust, make shortbread cookies! line the crust in a toaster oven pan. sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. bake at 350 until the edges are golden brown. then enjoy.
- for extra cream cheese frosting, add some flair to thanksgiving morning breakfast. spread on waffles or pancakes instead of the usual whipped cream.
