What to Do with Leftover Raspberry Pie Filling?
Leftover raspberry pie filling can be used in many ways, including as a topping for ice cream, a base for a parfait or other desserts. It can also be used as a filling in a cheesecake or in a cheesecake cupcake.
With the recipes below, you’ll be able to use up all your leftover filling in delicious ways that will leave everyone wondering why they ever complained about having too much of it in the first place.
1. Raspberry Sauce
This one is pretty easy: just add some sugar and cornstarch to the leftover filling and simmer until thickened.
Pour over ice cream or pancakes for an amazing treat!
2. Raspberry Jam
Mix equal parts raspberry pie filling and water with some pectin for a quick and easy homemade jam that tastes great on toast or scones (or anything else).

5. Make Another Raspberry Pie
This one will require a little more work, but it’s well worth it.
You can use your leftover filling as the filling in another pie, or you can make a new batter with it, prepare the crust, and fill it with fresh berries instead of frozen ones (to make sure they’re fresh).
Then just bake and enjoy!
6. Make a Raspberry Cobbler
Crumble up some leftover pie crust into a casserole dish, then layer in your leftover raspberry filling, topped with more crumbled pie crust.
Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
7. Use It as Ice Cream Topping
Packaged ice cream can get boring pretty fast, but adding raspberry topping makes it so much more exciting!
Just mix the two together and serve immediately—you won’t regret it!
8. Add It to Your Favorite Waffle Recipe
Whisk together one cup of flour, one teaspoon baking powder and one teaspoon salt.
In a separate bowl, combine one egg yolk with two tablespoons of water and whisk until they’re completely combined.
Then add three tablespoons melted butter and one cup milk to the flour mixture and whisk until it’s smooth.
Stir in your leftover raspberry pie filling until well-mixed before pouring batter onto a hot waffle iron and cooking according to manufacturer’s instructions (we recommend between three and five minutes).
Serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar for an extra treat!
9. Add It to Your Favorite Pancake Recipe
Add a few tablespoons of your leftover pie filling to your favorite pancake batter and mix it up well before cooking them up on the stovetop.
They’ll taste great with some butter and syrup on top too!
10. Create a Sundae
This one is simple. Take some vanilla ice cream and pour some raspberry pie filling over it.
Top with whipped cream, fresh raspberries (or whatever else you want!), and any other toppings that sound good to you!
11. Create Your Own Granola Bar Recipe
If you’re not craving cookies, make a batch of homemade granola bars with this recipe and mix in some of your leftover filling for an extra fruity flavor!
12. Make a Homemade Pudding
This recipe will take any leftover pie filling and turn it into a simple, creamy pudding that you can enjoy anytime.
Just mix together water and sugar until they dissolve, then add in your desired amount of raspberries (and sugar if they aren’t sweet enough).
Pour into a dish and refrigerate overnight before serving.
13. Make Tartlets
Divide your leftover filling into four portions and fill individual tartlet shells with it.
Top the tarts with whipped cream, fresh raspberries, or both!
These make great little desserts to serve at parties or bring as part of a bake sale contribution.
14. Freeze It
Freeze any leftover pie filling in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months.
Just let it thaw on the countertop (or microwave) when you’re ready to use it again.
15. Use It as a Topping on Other Pies
You can also use your leftover raspberry pie filling as a topping on other pies, like apple or peach.
Just spread it evenly over top of the fruit before baking and enjoy this delicious treat!
16. Make a Raspberry Smoothie
Pour your leftover filling into a blender along with milk and ice cubes, then blend until smooth.
Add more milk if you want it thinner; add more ice cubes if you want it thicker.
17. Make an Instant Raspberry Ice Pop
Pour your leftover filling into ice pop molds, then freeze overnight until solidified (or if using paper cups, fill them halfway with water first before adding the raspberry filling).
18. Make a Baked French Toast
Mix together your leftover filling with an egg or two and pour over challah bread slices before baking them in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Top with powdered sugar or vanilla ice cream later!
19. Make a Cookie Cake
Crumble up some shortbread cookies and mix them with some softened butter.
Press this mixture into the bottom of a cake pan, then pour in the leftover filling (you may want to strain it first if you have any seeds).
Top with more crumbs, then bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown on top—about 30 minutes should do it!
20. Bake Some Cookies
Make a batch of chocolate chip cookies using this recipe—then take out half of the dough before adding in the raspberry pie filling instead of chocolate chips!
You can also freeze them for later use if you don’t want to eat them all at once!
21. Add It to Your Favorite Cupcake Recipe
This one is just like making regular cupcakes except that you’re going to add some raspberry pie filling into the batter instead of frosting or jam.
It’s a great way for kids who love sweets but aren’t ready for something too sweet yet!

Fruit salads are easy enough to throw together when you have leftover fruit lying around—just put it all into one bowl and mix it up!
