I made a pumpkin pie last night for my son's classroom feast. There ended up being way more filling than the crust could hold, so I have extra. It's not enough extra to make another pie. Any ideas what I can do with it?
Someone posted a recipe awhile ago for pumkin enchilada sauce. I tried it- it was yummy. You could look in the archives, maybe?<br>
You could also make bread, or pumpkin bran muffins<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">Or cookies.
Thank you! Those all sound good...my problem is if I were to try and make bread or cookies etc. out of it, I'd have no idea how much flour or other stuff to use....also, it's not just pumpkin puree that I have, it's pumpkin pie filling - it has pumpkin, molasses, honey, maple syrup, eggs, spices, half and half, in it. Think I could use it for anything? thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
If it's already mixed up for 'pie filling'. Make some pie crust and do tartlet sized ones in muffin tins and pour in and bake for mini pies.<br><br>
Or crush nuts or graham crackers with some butter and a bit of sugar, and make a little muffin tin crusts and pour in filling and bake.<br><br>
You will probably get about a 1/4 cup filling per tin, with crust in place...so if that helps you figure out how many 'mini' crusts to make, for the amount of filling you have left over.
i mixed my extra filling with cream cheese and made a pumkin cheesecake a couple of weeks ago. it was <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">
take a yellow cake mix, completely ignore the instructions. add an egg and a melted stick of butter. smoosh it into a 9x13 pan. dump the filling over the top, and bake it. it makes a nice gooey buttery pumpkin cake. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
Wow those all sound soooo good. I ended up making the pudding. I just baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes. I didn't have any whipped cream but we just ate it as is. Made a very yummy dessert after lunch!
