Thanksgiving Pie Egg Rolls

Thanksgiving Pie Egg Rolls
Every family has their favorite ways to repurpose the Thanksgiving leftovers. Sandwiches, soups, and casseroles are always popular. But what about leftover pie? Pie lasts only a couple of days before the crust goes soggy and the filling starts to taste old, and only a few kinds of pie can be frozen. Although I grew up in a big family and Thanksgiving meant several kinds of pie to choose from rather than the standard apple and pumpkin, there were always a few pieces leftover. This year I went a little overboard and made 8 different pies. There were way too many leftovers, and with the price of food, I decided that these yummy pies shouldn’t go to waste. When I used the savory leftovers for my favorite Thanksgiving Egg Rolls with Two Dipping Sauces, I wondered if I could make sweet egg rolls with the leftover pie. The following Thanksgiving Pie Egg Rolls are the delicious result, and are an excellent, as well as quick and easy way to use up those yummy leftovers.
The air fryer makes it possible to “fry” these egg rolls with minimum oil and no lingering stale oil smell in the house. These crunchy egg rolls can be stuffed with any pie – I used sweet potato, apple, lemon meringue, banana cream, chocolate cream, custard, and pecan.
