    A friend of mine recently gave me loads of individual packets of pie filling in various flavors and I was looking for recipes using this pie filling in things other than pies. Any suggestions since I don't want to waste these? Thanks in advance.

    My first thought was also the pie-molds. We love to make these with buttered bread (butter on the outside) with the pie filling in between. Cooked over a campfire.

    How about topping for pancakes, waffles, and/or ice cream?
    Or, how about a shortcake topped with the filling?

    Good luck!

    I use cherry pie filling for the following recipe, but it could easily be adapted for other fruit fillings:

    Cherry Trifle:
    1 angel food cake (could also use chocolate cake or pound cake)
    2 envelopes of vanilla pudding, prepared
    1 can of cherry pie filling
    1 tub of cool-whip
    chocolate sauce

    Layer in trifle bowl, top with toasted coconut and slivered almonds


    :banana: yummy

    Dump cakes!

    can of pie filling
    large (14 ounce?) can of crushed pineapple
    box of yellow cake mix
    stick of butter, melted

    4, count them, 4 ingredients!

    pour into a casserole type cake pan the pie filling and crushed pineapple. Pour evenly over them the dry cake mix and then drizzle the butter over it all.
    I'm at work so I'm not sure but I think it is 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.

    I've used all flavors of pie filling-the results are what I call cobbler-cake!
    These is delicious with ice cream to "cut the sweet"! :teeth:

    If you go to the Southern Living website you should find a fair amount of these variations.

    Apple Enchiladas


    1 (21-ounce) can apple fruit filling
    6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/3 cup butter or margarine
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    1/2 cup water

    Spoon fruit filling evenly down center of each tortilla; sprinkle evenly with cinnamon. Roll up, and place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.
    Bring butter and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Pour over enchiladas; let stand 30 minutes.

    Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

    Yield: 4 to 6 servings

    Serve with ice cream and it is delish!! It is one of my family's favorite and it is so easy.

    I use both blueberry and cherry pie fillings for petite cheesecakes which is the recipe that you use a Nilla wafer as the crust, cream cheese mixture in the middle, and then the pie filling on the top.

    What about a crumble?

    Rub butter and flour together to the "breadcrumb" stage then add sugar to taste. You could also add flaked almonds or cinnamon at this stage.

    Pour fruit filling into an oven proof bowl, top with the crumble mix, dot small pieces of butter on the top and bake for 25/30 minutes until the topping is crunchy and hot. Serve with cream or ice cream (or english custard)

    or use as the basis of a fruit pavlova.

    Buy or make a meringue base or case plus smaller pieces of meringue. Break up the smaller pieces of merignue into 1 inch pieces and fold into whipped cream. Pile the whipped cream onto the merignue base, leaving the centre hollowed out. Pour the fruit filling into the hollowed out centre, scatter with flaked almonds or roasted hazlenuts. Chill and serve.

    or a fruit upside-down cake.

    butter and line a cake tin. Pour the fruit filling into the cake tin and smooth to cover the bottom.

    Mak a sponge cake mix by creaming butter and sugar, whisking in eggs then fold in flour. Add vanilla if liked. Pour cake mix over fruit and cook until risen and golden. Turn the cake out of the tin, and the fruit will become a nice colourful topping to the cake. Serve with cream/ice cream/custard.

    This might sound gross to some people but I think it tastes yummy!
    I take apple pie filling out of a can and put it on top of ham slices and put it in the crockpot for about 3-4 hours on low (you might have to add a little bit of water so the ham does not dry out) and it tastes so good! :teeth:

    We use cherry pie filling to make cherry brownies

    Prepare your mix as usual adding a 1/2 cup of filling to the mix. Bake as always. When they come out, top with chocolate chips. After the chips melt pour more filling over the top.
