Leftover pies can be made into a completely new dessert for everyone to enjoy post-holiday. Lorin Cook, Marie Callender's "Pie Queen," has leftover pie tricks that will make anyone's mouth water.

Here are the recipes for cinnamon roll waffles topped with pie filling and pie-infused French toast using left-over pie.

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Roll Waffles:

  • Preheat waffle iron to a low heat.
  • As the waffle iron is heating up, separate store bought refrigerated cinnamon rolls on a plate.
  • Spray the waffle iron generously with PAM.
  • Place the individual cinnamon rolls in each waffle slot. Close the waffle iron lid and press down lightly and let cook for two and a half to three minutes.
  • Carefully use spatula to remove the cinnamon rolls and place them on a plate.
  • Scoop Marie Callender’s Pumpkin Pie filling from leftover holiday pie.
  • Spread 2-3 tablespoons of pumpkin pie filling on each cinnamon roll.
  • Finish by adding the included icing pack over the top of the warm cinnamon rolls.

Pumpkin Pie French Toast: 

  • Prepare your favorite French toast as usual using thick slices of bread.
  • As the French toast is cooking, scoop the filling out of a Marie Callender’s leftover pie.
  • Remove French toast from the pan and spread the pie filling on top of a slice of French toast.
  • Top the filling within an additional slide of French toast.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and fresh fruit for garnish.
