So which one are you? Pumpkin pie lover or chocolate?
My mom loves pumpkin pie any time of the year. I've heard reports that cousin Craig just may get a little grumpy if he doesn't end Thanksgiving with a slice of pie and a little cool whip on top (or was that a bowl of cool whip and a little pie on top....hmmmm).
I'll always take chocolate cream pie. Really though, I'm happier if it has a graham cracker crust. Not a big pie crust fan.
My husband, on the other hand, doesn't like either. Know why? Not enough crust. Not even close!
For Joe, a proper pie needs:
1. A bottom crust AND a top crust.
2. Some sort of fruit filling that looks a whole lot like apples....
3. It must be warm.
4. There absolutely must be, no doubt about it, don't even think of handing him the plate if there
isn't, vanilla ice cream on top.
5. No whip cream.
He's not a picky eater....he just knows what he likes.
In other words, these cookies are not for him....
Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Cream Pie Cookies!!!
I'm certainly not the first to make these. Ali Bee's Bake Shop did the first ones I saw a year or so ago.
Hers are ah-mazing, and I've wanted to try them ever since.
I wanted to do something a little different, a little unique, and since they still need to look like pies.....there's not too much wiggle room.
So I tried to think back to the last time I made a pie....
....that didn't help....
then I remembered my grandmother doing this when she'd make lemon meringue pie for my mom.
Did your grandmother do this? The 'crimp the edges with a fork' thing on the edges?
Well, I'm pretty sure mine did.
This was before Martha came around and let us know we were supposed to be braiding and stamping and carving the edges into who-knows-what.
That's what her pies looked like!
So....which would you pick?
Or Chocolate Cream?
Or some of each?
Thanks for stopping by,
