Easy As Pie!

17 Nov

Mmmm do you smell the yummy pumpkin treats being baked as Thanksgiving is around the corner! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spices. I love all the pumpkin things that surround Thanksgiving!

If you always reach for something pumpkin as I would, how about you pull a trick??

This Thanksgiving pull a trick on your family and friends by making a sugar cookie that looks like a pumpkin pie! It is so cute and it will get the same attention a pumpkin pie would, I can guarantee it!

Just follow the recipe below.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 of a 16.5-ounce roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 3/4 cup orange frosting
  • Pecans, halved crosswise
  • Whipped cream
  • Parchment paper
  • 9-inch pie pan

Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly dust a sheet of parchment paper and a rolling pin with flour. On the paper, roll out the dough into a 91/2- to 10-inch circle. Place a 9-inch pie pan on top and trim away the dough’s edges. Transfer the dough round, on the paper, to a cookie sheet and bake it until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes (do not overbake). Let it cool 1 minute, then carefully transfer it, still on the paper, to a rack to cool completely.
  2. Cover the cookie to its edges with the frosting and press the pecan pieces in place to form the crust. Slice the cookie as you would a pie and serve with whipped cream.

Eat up!
