Thanksgiving isn't complete without some pie!🥧 Whether it's pumpkin, apple, or pecan, I am sure there will be plenty of it on your Thanksgiving table. I am usually the one in charge of bringing dessert and I wanted to make a pie that is a bit more festive than the traditional. Here is how you can easily make a turkey pie crust. 🦃
Choose your pie. I opted for apple pie because that is my husband's favorite. So I went ahead and made a homemade apple pie. I actually used this recipe from Pillsbury. Then I purchased some additional refrigerated pie crusts from my local grocery store. I allowed it to get to room temperature for a few minutes.
Grab a circle cookie cutter(or make a pattern out of paper/thin cardboard) and this will be the body of turkey. I then cut out a pattern on thin cardboard for the head and the feathers(I made small and large feathers). Begin to cut the shapes out of the pie crust. I added extra detail to the feathers by cutting slits with a knife and using a toothpick to make an impression in the center.
Next dab your crust pieces with water to act as glue and begin to assemble your turkey on the pie crust. Don't forget to add a beak and the "snood" of the turkey. I also poked two eyes with a toothpick. Since I made an apple pie, I made a few slits in the crust to allow steam to come through while baking.
Lastly, apply some egg wash and bake. It is amazing what you can do with a pie crust. You can make all sorts of fun and creative shapes. Give it a try!
