ISO uses for pre-made pie crust, besides pie!

I have to ready made pie crusts in the freezer. I've never used them before, always made my own.

Anyone have ideas for recipes to use these for beside a fruit pie?

You can use them for empanadas. This one is good. http://www.recipezaar.com/21623

I use them in my chicken pies (they're really good - made with cream cheese in the filling). I know the recipe's floating around here, but if you need it, I can post it for you.

JUst a thought, but I wonder if you could roll cheese into it and make cheese straws?

On the same line, how about cutting it with a pastry cutter into long strips, brushing a bit of melted butter on it, then shaking cinnamon sugar over the tops. Twist each strip to look like a spiral pool slide and bake till golden.

Continuing Jkath's thought, just leave the crust whole, spread with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then roll up and cut into 1/2" slices. Place in pie pan or on baking sheet and bake at 375 until golden.
********
Cut in strips and bake as is for strawberry shortcake. Piecrust goes great with the berries.
Or spread the strips with jelly!

Angie, I posted recipes for Tomato pie that's yummy, and Inside-out pizza pie, but unable to locate it. Will go to my recipe files, if you're interested. Some more suggestions:

Quiche, Calzone, Samosas, Wellingtons, Chicken salad pie (let me know if you would like the recipe), under zucchini ideas, I posted a link for a zuke/tomato pie. Have you ever tried a Runza (ground beef, onions etc, wrapped in dough)? Beef stew baked between two pie crusts is another thought.

Lots 'n lotsa pies:

Are you sure I can't talk you into this Cream Cheese Brownie Pie?
