I mentioned in my last post that I had extra pie filling left over. It was not quite enough to make a second pie, and I did not want it to go to waste. So I experimented a little and made them into cookies. They turned out a little more chewy than I would have liked but were overall pretty yummy.
Leftover sweet potato pie filling
~ 1 cup of flour (I used about 1/4 whole wheat and the rest all-purpose flour)
3/4 cup rolled oats (from Earth Fare‘s bulk section)
3/4 cup chocolate chips, organic (from Earth Fare’s bulk section)
- Pre heat oven to 350 F.
- Mix in just enough flour that the dough is not runny.
- Fold in oats and chocolate chips.
- Use a tablespoon to drop on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, until the edges are starting to brown.
I don’t like to throw away food unless it is necessary. This was a good way to use up the extra pie filling, and turned out to be a yummy, filling snack!
