This Is Not a Pumpkin Pie (But It Is Tasty!)

While traveling around the internet this week we ran across a most beautiful pumpkin pie, but to our dismay it wasn’t even made of pumpkin… or even pie! Can you guess what it’s made from?

This giant pumpkin pie is really a giant sugar cookie that’s been iced and adorned with pecans. It travels super easy and is great for kids to grab a slice on the go as they run around your Thanksgiving festivities (without too much worry anyway).

It’s an easy way to make something fun and festive without having to bake a pie. Some people still aren’t comfortable with the task, but cookies… they’re universal. Make it in a full oven or a toaster oven, but no matter what, make sure you send us a piece (not literally, we’re not sure it would mail well).
