What Can You Do With Leftover Sweet Potato Pie Filling?

So you’ve finished filling your sweet potato pie crust and you have some filling leftover – it happens! No matter how much or how little you have left, you can still make use of it. From snacks to breakfasts, to drinks; there’s a huge variety of ways to ensure not a drop goes to waste. Here are some of my top tips:

Make cupcakes

This is one of the easiest options. Just add some liners to a baking pan and fill them with your leftover pie filling. Then place in the oven at 350F for around 30 minutes.

Use for breakfast

Store in the refrigerator until the next morning and then use it as a topping for pancakes, waffles, or even toast! It even tastes greatly mixed into a bowl of oatmeal too.

Sweet potato smoothie

For a nutritious drink, add your filling to a blender with ice and other ingredients, such as maple syrup, and then blitz until smooth.

Cracker snack

Spread it onto crackers as a tasty afternoon snack.

Freeze

Whether you have a large amount that needs storing in an airtight container or a Ziplock bag, or a small amount that you can use to fill ice cube trays; freezing is really effective. The ice cube tray idea is great for adding filling to dishes like soups and casseroles.

Mini sweet potato pies

Get your crust ready, then add ricotta cheese, pie filling, and then whipped cream. Bite-sized treats are ready in no time.

Make another pie

If you have enough filling left, why not just make a second pie? Two pies are better than one!

Can You Use Ready Crust For Sweet Potato Pie?

Absolutely! Keebler Ready Crust graham pie crusts are extremely popular and can be used and baked for sweet potato pie if desired. Using store-bought graham pie crust can save a lot of time and you can usually pick one up in stores like Walmart for around $2.50.

How Long Can You Freeze Sweet Potato Pie Filling?

You can freeze your sweet potato pie filling for up to 3 months. However, it must be stored correctly to achieve this length of time. It should be stored in either an airtight container or a freezer bag. If using a freezer bag, the air must be removed before you seal it. These tips can help your filling last longer in the freezer.

How Long Can I Freeze Sweet Potato Pie?

Sweet potato pie can be frozen for up to 3 months. However, the longer it’s been frozen, the worse the texture will become once it’s been defrosted. For this reason, we do not recommend freezing for any longer than 3 months. You can either freeze the sweet potato pie whole or in slices. Slices can be more convenient if you’re just looking to thaw individual pieces.

Where Can I Buy Canned Sweet Potato Puree?

You can buy canned sweet potato puree from grocery stores such as Walmart, or online retailers such as Amazon. One of the brands I’d recommend is Farmer’s Market, which offers organic sweet potato puree. However, it’s worth noting that this is usually much more expensive than traditional canned sweet potatoes.

How to Make Canned Sweet Potatoes Taste Like Homemade?

When it comes to canned sweet potatoes, seasoning is usually enough to make them taste better. Whether that be a simple seasoning (like a dash of salt pepper), or something a little more exciting, like a spice blend (I recommend spices like cumin, garlic, and paprika) – it’s super easy to elevate your sweet potatoes. Candied sweet potatoes are one of my favorites, and all you need is 2 cans of canned sweet potatoes, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Now all you need to do is preheat your oven to 400F and drain your sweet potatoes and place them into a baking pan. Slice your butter into cubes and place them into the pan, along with your sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Now place the pan into your preheated oven and bake for around 30 minutes. With this recipe, your canned sweet potatoes will definitely taste homemade.

Tips and Tricks: Mouth-Watering Sweet Potato Pie 

Make holes in the crust to prevent it from inflating. Freezing a cooked sweet potato pie is possible, yet it will become soggy. Note freeze before cooking your pie because you will need to thaw it before baking. It is okay to freeze sweet potato pie. However, be sure to defrost it slowly in the refrigerator to prevent it from getting wet and moist on top of the pie. 

Allow your sweet potato pie to cool and rest for a day for the best results and four hours as a bare minimum if you have a busy schedule. When done baking, if you prefer not to take the internal temperature of the pie which should be 175°F, you can insert a knife into the edge of the filling to check if it is moist but clean.
