Harvest Pumpkin Pie
Sweet As Pumpkin Pie!
THANKSGIVING PIES: Part 3 of 3
Pumpkin Pie is such wonderful tradition on Thanksgiving.
Here is my version called HARVEST PUMPKIN PIE.
As a professional food stylist, I can’t resist making my desserts look beautiful.
Here ,I make it extra special by using the extra pie dough trimmings and press mini cookie cutters to decorate this delectable filling and edges of the pie crusts.

Flakey Pie Pastry Dough for Single Crust* (Recipe found in my blog.)
Press above into 9-inch pie plate. Flute edge by pinching pastry between thumb and forefinger to crimp.
**Brush with Egg Wash. Freeze 10 minutes before adding pumpkin mixture, to prevent the crimped edges from shrinking during baking.
Fill with pumpkin mixture.
Bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F, continue to bake 40 to 45 minutes or until set in center. Cover pie loosely with aluminum foil if crust gets too brown during baking. Let cool. Refrigerate until serving if serving next day.
Serve, if desired, with fresh whipped cream or favorite whipped topping. Makes 12 Servings TIPS: *Can substitute Flakey Pie Pastry Dough for Single Crust recipe with store-bought prepared refrigerated pie crust. Roll out scraps of extra pastry dough and use small festive cookie cutters to cut out shapes to decorate top of pie. Place on pie before baking. **EGG WASH: Mix 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon water. Brush on pastry dough edges after filling before baking for golden glow.
