‘Tis the season … to eat pie to your heart’s content! Did you know, every holiday season our bakeries sell an average of over 3 million of our award-winning pies across all our stores? If your family is like mine, this time of year means having plenty of leftover pie and other desserts after each holiday gathering.

Have you ever found yourself wondering what to do with all that leftover pie? Check out these unique ways to transform your favorite slice this season.


Create a pie parfait by adding pieces of leftover pie between layers of your preferred yogurt. Top with pie crust crumbles and chopped nuts to add extra crunch to your creation.

Pie Pops 

Insert skewers into slices of pie and freeze until solid. Then, dip your pie pops into your choice of melted chocolate and sprinkle with your favorite toppings — chopped nuts, graham cracker crumbs, shredded coconut, small candies, etc. These treats work best with creamier pies such as Key lime and pumpkin.

Blend a slice of leftover pie with a few scoops of your favorite  Publix Premium ice cream and a little bit of milk to create the best milkshake ever. Adjust the amount of milk you add to accomplish your desired thickness. Feel free to get creative with your flavor combos. Apple pie blended with dulce de leche ice cream? Yes, please!
