Leftover Pie Parfait
Holidays are crazy. You’re running all over the place, making delicious food, and making great memories. And if you’re like me- you ALWAYS have way too much food on hand!
While one of our favorite holiday treats is delicious, buttery, decadent fruit pies- we almost always end up with lots of leftover pie. I’m known to dive face-first in a pie morning, noon, and night. Sometimes we look for a fun way to repurpose our leftovers, and this leftover pie parfait that my mom came up with is a huge hit!
How to make Leftover Pie Parfaits
Assemble the following ingredients:
- Leftover apple – you can use berry pie, pumpkin, or any pie. If you use a crustless pie you can just add granola for the topping.
- Fresh berries – fresh berries bring a nice uncooked element to lighten up this parfait. You can use whatever berries you like.
- Berry yogurt – you can use plain or vanilla yogurt, whipped cream, or even ice cream if you want to make this a dessert.
- Butter – butter will help the baked pie crust clump together and add a soft richness to the topping.
Once you have assembled the ingredients use the following method
Layer. Layer some of the pie filling into the bottom of a wine glass or whatever vessel you want to use. Add fresh berries, then the yogurt.
Prep topping. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the pie crust, crumbling it with a fork. Heat until it is lightly browned and clumping.
Finish. Add the topping to the parfait and enjoy!
Tips and Tricks for Perfect Leftover Pie Parfait
To make this recipe extra delicious, she separated the filling from the crust from a slice of leftover pie. She added the filling to the bottom of the glass cold- and made a delicious buttery crumble for the top of the parfait out of the pie crust.
Swap for dessert. You can swap the yogurt out for whipped cream or ice cream for a more indulgent dessert!
Swap the pie crust for granola. If you don’t want to reheat and crumble the pie crust, you can just top with a handful of your favorite granola.
Pick a yogurt flavor that works with your pie filling. You can always default to classic vanilla or even plain yogurt. If you want to use a flavored yogurt, try to choose one that will complement the flavor of your pie filling. If you aren’t sure just, try a little together before assembling.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Its best to assemble this when you want to eat though.
Yes! I would use plain or vanilla yogurt if you use a very strongly flavored pie like pumpkin.
Yes, if you are using a crustless pie just top your parfait with a handful of your favorite granola.
