The Rescue Baker has several ideas on what to do with leftover pumpkin pie filling:
Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding: Break up several pieces of your favorite bread into a baking dish. (TRB bets Challah would work quite nicely!) Then, pour the leftover pumpkin pie over top. Sprinkle with some Turbinado sugar and bake for 45-50 minutes (like you would your favorite bread pudding). Voila!
Pumpkin Pudding: Pour leftover batter into ramekins and bake it on the same setting and time as you would the pie. Top with some whipped cream and cinnamon. Yummy! (If you prefer, you can take a kitchen torch to the top and caramelize for a creme brulee-like effect).
Pumpkin Muffins: Using the leftover filling, add 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp baking powder and 1/2 cup milk. Pour batter into muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

I always bake fresh yams for Thanksgiving and always have leftover pumpkin pie filling..so a couple years ago I just poured the extra cup or so of pie filling over my baked yams in the casserole, sprinkled on some chopped pecans, a dollop of butter and baked until hot...20-30 minutes covered at 350. My family said it was "a keeper' so I do that every year now. Hope you enjoy!
