What to do with leftover pumpkin pie custard?

arielleeve | Nov 28, 2011 07:02 PM

Tonight I made the "silky smooth pumpkin pie" recipe from Smitten Kitchen (adapted from the Cook's Illustrated recipe), whereby the pumpkin filling is made as a kind of custard with half and half and eggs (yolks and whole eggs), strained through a fine mesh strainer, and then cooked in a blind baked shell. It turned out well, however I have about a cup or two of leftover custard filling. Any thoughts on how to use it? I don't know if it's worth doing ice cream since its not too much. Would hate for it to go to waste, though...
