Beyond the Pie: Simple Recipes & Tips for Using Pie Filling

You know, there’s a SavingStar eCoupon currently available for Lucky Leaf Pie Filling – save 75¢ when you buy 2 cans.

Maybe you don’t bake pies, and so you don’t think that particular coupon applies to you.  Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to feel left out… there are plenty of non-pie options for things you can make using Lucky Leaf pie filling.  Some may surprise you (like they did me.)

And with Easter coming up this weekend, I’m guessing some of you are either having people over to your house, or possibly getting together with family or friends at their house, and you might be looking for something different to bring to the table.  You may just find what you’re looking for on this list… AND be able to save some money when you buy the pie filling to make it.  Win-win.

This short video on Lucky Leaf’s website gives some great simple ideas – like making lemon bars using a can of lemon pie filling and a box of angel food cake mix, adding some strawberry pie filling to cream cheese to make a sweet and easy spread for bagels or toast, and using store-bought crescent dough plus blueberry pie filling to make quick little Blueberry Moon Pastries.

And, here are some other great-looking recipes that scored high ratings by reviewers:

Charming Cherry Pretzel Squares

Drizzle a little bit of melted chocolate on top of these for an even sweeter punch.

 

 

 

Lucky Stars Sugar Cookies

Add a layer of pie filling between two layers of sugar cookie dough for a nice extra kick of flavor.

 

 

 

Apple Streusel Bread

A perfect breakfast bread, or turn it into dessert by adding some ice cream or warmed-in-the-microwave apple sauce.

 

 

Pot-A-Cakes

Pretty sure this is not what is being said in the children’s rhyme, but I now will forever think of this image when I do Pat-A-Cake with my daughters.  And then I will be hungry.

 

 

Strawberries & Cream Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate and strawberries, happily together in muffin form.  Sounds divine.

 

 

 

Sweet & Hot Slow Cooker Pork

Pie filling is not just for sweet dishes!  It can also boost your savory meal dishes too.
