I eat it! Maybe not on the same day----- but there's no such thing as a bad pecan pie as long as it's been kept cold.

I agree with the ice cream thing!

I would heat them in the microwave or oven and make a parfait with layers of vanilla ice cream and layers of crumbled/gooey pecan pie!
Aunt Bea, that is what I was going to suggest.

Love the icecream idea but I would carry it even further and include the crust or some of the crust. Chop up the pie and blend into some softened vanilla icecream. refreeze the icecream. I've seen apple pie icecream and baklava icecream in the expensive end of the freezer section - pecan sounds even better.

You could make a riff on a bread pudding with the pies. Chop them up and add to traditional bread pudding - bake. Yum.

How about a dessert souffle with chopped up pecan pie?

Well done......you guys have some really good ideas.

I bet in the long history of DC, this is the first time this question has ever been asked. Quite a refreshing change from the common questions like "I left a pot of something out overnight, and can I eat it?"
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Thanks for any suggestions! Happy New Year!
I, er, could, umm, send you my address if you like....

Hmm. Remove the crust, melt some butter, chunk up crust and fry it till crispy, then add to whatever, ice cream, pecan goop, caramel sauce.....
