FUN WAYS TO USE CHERRY PIE FILLING
Canned cherry pie filling and other canned pie fillings can be used in so many different ways. They are a perfect shortcut in the kitchen and can save you a lot of time.
If you have some pie filling in the pantry try using it for some of these fun ideas:
- Ice Cream Topping: It is easy to spoon some fruit pie filling on top of a bowl of vanilla ice cream for a quick and yummy dessert.
- Sweet Dips: It is easy to beat some softened cream cheese with some pie filling for a delicious dip for fruit or graham crackers.
- Fruit Parfaits: Make a quick parfait by layering cheesecake filling or yogurt with fruit pie filling and top it off with some whipped topping.

HOW TO MAKE CHERRY PIE COOKIE CUPS
This is a very quick recipe to make and so simple that kids can help out too. If you love the flavor of cherry you will love this recipe.
STEP ONE: MAKE CUPS
Start off by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F.
Take a 24 count mini muffin pan and spray it lightly with non-stick cooking spray. This will make removing these little treats from the pan so much easier.
Another option is to use a silicone mini muffin pan for easy removal.
Now grab the tube of store-bought sugar cookie dough and pinch off pieces of dough. Roll the dough into small balls.
Place one dough ball in each mini muffin cup.
STEP TWO: BAKE
Place the muffin pan into your preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
As soon as the timer goes off remove the pan from the oven and use a pastry tamper to shape each piece of dough into a cup. Do this by pressing down in the center of each ball.
Let the cookie cup crusts cool completely.
STEP THREE: FILL CUPS
Once the cookie cup crusts are cool it is time to fill them with the cherry pie filling.
Spoon a little bit of cherry pie filling into each cookie cup.
STEP FOUR: SPRINKLE
I like to top each cherry pie cookie cup with a little bit of powdered sugar. The easiest way to do this is to use a sifter or small shaker.
This will distribute the powdered sugar more evenly.
These don’t need a lot of sugar, but a little bit is perfect to offset the cherry flavor.
