All the flavors of Homemade Pumpkin Pie packed into perfect portable fall dessert – Easy Pumpkin Pie Bites….

One of the reasons why I love the fall is because Miss Pumpkin steps on the pedestal again.
I prepare it very often in this period, in various forms – pieces of pumpkin with crust baked in the oven, cooked in a soup, as well as the recipes you’ve probably already tried on my blog – Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie Bites, Pumpkin Dessert Delight, Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese and Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese. Some time ago, my mom served us these sweet morsels, and since then this sweet delicacy has primacy over fall selection of desserts.

Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie

Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie

This Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie is easy to recreate and will amaze your family and friends this holiday season. Let me show you how easy it is to assemble, and bake, this fun Thanksgiving holiday treat.

I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust, so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling, is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie, rendering him invisible. That would be no fun at all!

To simplify the process of making this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie I used some store-bought pie crust that can be found in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. If you have a penchant for making your own crust, by all means use your favorite recipe, but be sure you make enough for a double crust pie.

Are you ready to make this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie? Great! Let’s begin!
