Autumn Pumpkin Pie

This Thanksgiving I made an Autumn Pumpkin Pie.  The pumpkin pie was made from canned pumpkin mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cream.   E.D. Smith Pumpkin is my pumpkin of choice.   Pastry is homemade using Tenderflake and following the recipe on their box.  I’ve tried other pastry recipes but I like Tenderflake.

The real reason I wanted to post this is just to show you how to dress up your pumpkin pie.

Using the same leaf cookie cutters I used on the Fall Apple Pie,  I cut pastry leaves with the smallest cutter for the edges and a couple of larger for the centre.   Remember to brush your pastry with milk and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar before baking. 

Just and idea for your own Thanksgiving.   Gobble Gobble !
