Pumpkin Pie

After a big turkey dinner there is always room for pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving dinner just wouldn’t be the same without it. Add some character by drawing a turkey design on top with sour cream and milk before baking. It is simple to draw as it consists mostly of circles and a few straight lines.

Pumpkin Pie
Pie ingredients:
1 can (14 oz)) cooked pumpkin purée
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup light cream
3/4 cup 2% milk, scalded
Pre-packaged Pie Shell
Mix pumpkin purée, brown sugar, spices, and salt together. Add lightly beaten eggs and mix together until well blended. Add cream and mix well. Stir in scalded milk just until blended. Pour pumpkin mixture into the pie shell.
Turkey Design Ingredients:
2 1/2 tbspsour cream
1 1/2 tsp milk
Mix sour cream with milk until smooth making sure there are no lumps. Pour mixture into the corner of a small Ziploc bag. Cut off the corner of the Ziploc bag to make a very small opening and draw your turkey design on top of the pie as follows: 
Make a medium circle towards the bottom of the pie. Draw another smaller circle inside for the head. Make an arch above the medium circle, connect lines to the medium circle to make feathers, and add a scallop to the top edge of the arch. Add eyes, beak, snood, and feet. Smooth out any uneven edges with a toothpick.
Preheat oven (350 F) and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until filling is set. Cool and serve with maple whipped cream.
Maple Whipped Cream Recipe:
2 cups whipping cream
1–2 tbsp pure maple syrup
Mix all ingredients together in electric mixer on high speed until firm enough to hold peaks.
