The holidays mean time spent with family and friends. This also means time spent eating! At least, it does in our family. Holidays have always been filled with delicious meals with tons of desserts—we love our pies.
Even though we enjoy eating during the holidays, there always seem to be leftovers. After Thanksgiving, we ate turkey with all of the trimmings for days. Plus we made sandwiches and casseroles to use up the leftovers. When we have leftover Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies, we usually just eat it the exact same way the next day—sliced with Reddi-Wip® on top. No sandwiches and casseroles for the desserts… until now!
Leftover pie brownies
Okay, it isn’t a sandwich or casserole, but this is a delicious way to rework any leftover pie. It has very few ingredients and is really easy to make.
An easy way to use up any leftover pie.
- 1/2 (or less) of a Marie Callender's Southern Pecan Pie
- 1 box brownie mix (I used this)
- (any ingredients listed on the box of brownies)
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans (I used these)
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used these)
- 1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes (I used these)
- Cut your leftover pie into smaller pieces and put in a food processor (I used this one).
- Process until the pie is completely broken down.
- Make brownie mix as directed on package.
- Pour the brownie mix into a greased 9"x13".
- Take spoonfuls of the pie mixture and plop it on top of the brownie mix. Spread these out so that there is brownie still showing.
- Drag a knife through the pie/brownie mix until you have created a marble effect.
- Add toppings and cook according to the brownie box directions.
- Stick a toothpick in the brownies. If it doesn't come out clean put the brownies back in for a couple more minutes.
I picked up the Marie Callender’s Southern Pecan Pie at Walmart, but you can really use any variety of Marie Callender’s pie and a lot of different toppings. Here are some ideas for toppings on the brownies:
- Dark chocolate chips
- Crushed Oreos
- White chocolate chips
- Caramel bits
- Peanut butter chips
- Chopped walnuts
I’m sure you can come up with some great ideas!
Share the joy of pie
I kept some of the brownies for my husband and me to eat and then I cut up the rest to share. These cute little gift boxes will hold a few brownies and would be a nice gift to keep around for anyone you may have forgotten on your list. You could leave one in your mailbox as a surprise for your mailman or on a neighbor’s doorstep. Why not share the joy of Marie Callender’s pie with everyone?
