A good pumpkin pie is a need for any Thanksgiving dinner, but in reality, it's a quick and festive way to liven up any fall event. A piece of the classic pumpki

Unbelievable as it may seem, canned pumpkin makes for a better pumpkin pie recipe. It's exactly as tasty and much simpler to work with. Since fresh pumpkin is frequently stringy, and you don't want fibers in your pie, it might even be more flavorful. Therefore, this is one of the few occasions when we advise against using fresh ingredients.

We still have a few suggestions, though, to make sure your pumpkin pie has a lot of autumnal flavor. In order to maintain the sweetness, our recipe calls for a mixture of brown sugar and maple syrup, which offers a deep depth that can't be matched by pure sugar. Additionally, we substitute a simple custard made from fresh whole milk, heavy cream, and eggs for the condensed milk that you would find in other pumpkin pie recipes.

Without a little pumpkin pie spice, of course, no pumpkin pie would be complete. Use our suggested mixture or, if you prefer, use roughly 1 1/2 teaspoons of your preferred store-bought mixture. Make your own batch of our pumpkin spice mixture if you plan to make a lot of items using pumpkin spice and want to save money. It lasts for months and is perfect for all of your fall baking.

Tips for Decorating Pumpkin Pie

Japanese for "short and plump," "chibi" has come to refer to characters with particularly adorable, baby-like features. Designs for jack-o'-lanterns, which many people regard to be charming, short, and chubby, work particularly well in the chibi style. When pumpkin is the pie of choice, which is a taste that is especially well-liked at this time of year, making a jack-o'-lantern inspired pie is even simpler.

I believe it makes logical for the filling to be pumpkin as we want the pie to be a literal representation of a pumpkin, but who am I to limit your creativity? You can use any filling taste and dough for this pie since it has a sanding-sugar top. Another option is to utilize a pre-made pie.

On parchment paper, roll out the dough of your choosing, and using a sharp knife, cut out each component of the chibi pumpkin shape. (Note: For instructions on how to download and print the template for this pie, make your own template or buy the book.)

Apply the egg wash to the pieces with a pastry brush. Use a fondant sculpting tool to score some lines on the stem and the leaf while the dough is still wet.

With your egg wash, adhere the leaf to the stem, and then cut out three thin pieces of dough to create vines. Apply egg wash to them, then coil them anyway you like around the stem and leaf.

Combine a tiny quantity of vanilla extract with your gel colors. Paint your pieces with a brush that is safe for eating. Consider painting the pie's facial portions yellow or maybe simply leaving them dough-colored if the filling is particularly dark. Choose a dark hue like black if the backdrop filling is bright, like this sanding sugar design. Paint the cheeks pink and the stem green. I quickly washed the stem with a more subdued shade of green to let some of the original dough shine through in order to give it a more "natural" appearance. For around 8 minutes, bake the pieces at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bake the base pie right away, then flatten the top of the trim by about 2 inches to make room for the stem. Break off a small portion of the trim from a store-bought pie so the stem may sit level.

When the base pie is cool and ready to be served, sprinkle on the sanding sugar. You decide what you want to do, however I created a slight ombre look with orange at the bottom and yellow at the top. It will also look good in a solid color. The face is added as the last phase. Place the eyes below the face's midline to achieve the authentic chibi look.
