Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie

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.

Homemade Royal Icing Eyeballs with Video Presentation #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Eye would be remiss if eye didn’t share with you just how easy it is to make these Homemade Royal Icing Eyeballs. After all, you can’t have a spooky Halloween treat (in my opinion) without some glaring eyeballs watching your every move!

Of course, you can always purchase candy eyeballs at the store, but those only come in one size and shape, as if one size really fits all. Ha! By making your own candy eyeballs, you can tailor them to your specific needs and vision.

If hindsight really is 20/20, then I’m here to help you envision what’s possible!

Hauntingly Delicious Boo Berry Pie with Video Presentation #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Boo Berry Pie is a delicious mixed berry pie with orange zest and orange juice to kick up the flavor. To make things simple I’ve used a store bought deep dish pie crust and also a flat-rolled refrigerated crust for the easy cut out shapes.

If it looks scary or intimidating to make, I hope you’ll stick with me because I’ll walk you through the entire process of just how simple it is to recreate.

Low Sugar Cherry Yeast Bread with White Chocolate Ganache Drizzle

I decided I’d like to make this bread a little less sweet than what the local bakery sells in order to really let the flavor of summer cherries shine. The result is this beautiful (and healthier) cherry yeast bread that is perfect on its own or slathered with butter. Is it so wrong? LOL
