Miffy likes to recreate her family’s Thanksgiving extras into mini leftover pies. Try the below recipes to turn your family’s leftovers into tasty post-Thanksgiving treats like Miffy!

Thanksgiving Leftover Pies:

To note: Please ask a parent for help when taking the pan in and out of the oven.

You’ll Need:

  • 12-cup muffin tin
  • Butter or cooking spray
  • Puff pastry sheets (enough for 12 four-inch squares)
  • Filling: choose from your leftovers (examples below)
  • 1 beaten white egg

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Turkey:

  • 1/3 cup turkey
  • 1/4 cup stuffing
  • 2 tablespoons gravy

Directions:

  1. With an adult, preheat oven to 400°F.
