Momma’s Pumpkin Pie

My daughter and I made pies for Thanksgiving and I call this one Momma’s Famous Pumpkin Pie. Making pies with a family member can make the holidays special and memorable and become a tradition.  We also made apple pie.  This recipe is passed down from my Mom and is the same one my she made with me and that is why it is called Momma’s Famous Pumpkin Pie.

My Daughter and Me.

Using a leaf as decoration for the pie makes it cute and festive for the dessert table.   The cookie cutters that I used are the Wilton Mini Leaf Cookie Cutters.  These Maple Leaf Cookie Cutters or Autumn cookie cutters would also work for fall decorating or Thanksgiving.   And if you are planning for Christmas here are some Holiday Cookie Cutters.

Cut the Leaves out of your pie dough and make your decoration.
