Pumpkin Pie Candy

Do you like pumpkin pie and pie crust?  Do you like candy?  How about having fun with food?

I have got a treat for you …

pumpkin pie candy with crustThis is candy on pie crust!  Kind of looks like pumpkin pie … doesn’t it?

I don’t normally serve my pie with a candy pumpkin on top … since this isn’t really pumpkin pie … figured it was OK here.   This is just a fun little treat … hope it puts a smile on your face 🙂

Add a few chocolate chips for those who like chocolate with pumpkin!Pumpkin Pie candy chocolate SixletsMaking faux pumpkin pie is easy peasy … let me show you how to make two Candy Pumpkin Pies …pumpkin pie candy 1,2,31.  Supplies for 2 pies –

  • 1 package (1 pound) of Vanilla CandiQuik (or candy melts)
  • Orange Candy Coloring (oil based)
  • 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts (2)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
  • Autumn Sixlets and candy pumpkins for garnish

2.  Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Follow package directions for oven temperatures and handling dough.  Spread dough on prepared baking sheets.  Prick the dough several times with a fork.  Fold the dough edge up about 1/2″ and crimp or pinch the edge, just like making a real pie.  Chill for a few minutes.

3.  Bake according to package directions.  Please notice the crust on the right … I didn’t chill it … the edges didn’t hold their shape as well at the crust on the left.  Let the crusts cool.

5.  Warning – be patient!!!  Look at the center of the candy … I wasn’t patient … the candy was not firmed up and I tried to cut it!  Do not do this … learn from my mistakes!  Sorry to sound so bossy … just trying to help 😉

6.  No Photo … Wait for the candy to harden up and then wait five more minutes!

7.  Cut the candy with the longest knife you own.  Try not to use a sawing motion … just press down.

9.  Melt the remaining 4 ounces of CandiQuick … this is the fake whipped cream for your fake pie.  Add a small spoon of candy to each slice … let it sit a minute.

10.  Add another little dollop of candy whipped cream on top of the first dollop … gives it a little dimension.  Add candy garnish!
