What You’ll Need:
Pre-made pie dough
Brown food gel dye
Black food gel dye
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of salt
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Roll out one of the pre-made pie doughs and place it into a 9-inch pie plate.
Step 3: In a large bowl stir together the canned pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt.
Step 4: Pour into the prepped pie dough. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 50 minutes, until set. Let cool.
Step 5: While the pie is baking roll out the second pre-made pie dough onto a floured surface. Use the template to cut out porg shapes approximately 2-1/2-inches tall.
Step 6: Move to a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. With a clean kitchen paintbrush, paint on the porg’s body details with brown food gel dye, then the face details using the black food gel dye. Bake for 12-14 minutes until browned.
Step 7: For the little porglets cut out 1-1/2-inch shapes using the template, follow the same steps, and bake for 10 minutes.
Step 8: Once the porgs are cool, place into the cooled pie to serve.
Happy Thanksgiving! May the porgs be with you.
