Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe: (Leftover) Pie Shakes
Yes, we took a whole piece of leftover Thanksgiving pie and tossed it in a blender. The result is, quite possibly, the easiest, most delicious incarnation of leftovers ever.
If you’re lucky enough to have a few slices of extra Thanksgiving pie (or have strategically tucked a piece…or two…in the back of the fridge) these shakes are a delightfully simple way to indulge your leftover sweet cravings.
We had a few pieces of pumpkin
leftover, but apple, pecan or any other extra slice you have works perfectly in this recipe. The same thought goes for the ice cream flavor. Vanilla’s a classic – and undeniably tasty – choice, but maple, brown sugar or even pumpkin ice creams blend beautifully with the warm, cinnamon-laced flavors of Thanksgiving pie. Blend with a touch of milk, vanilla and cinnamon and you have a fun, festive way to enjoy that pie one more time.
