Today was our October edition of cooking with books. I had a great plan and had a couple of great books, but I couldn’t find then at the library in time. So I got another one. My first choice was Too Many Pumpkins, my second was Pumpkin Day, but the one we read was The Pumpkin Man of Piney Creek. It was a sweet book about a girl who wanted to make a jack-o-lantern, but her Pa had to sell them all. The only one they saved was for her mom to make pie with. The pumpkin man gave the girl a pumpkin in the end. It was a book with lots of jack-o-lanterns and pie! So we made some little jack-o-lantern pies! They were so simple and yummy. I bought some pie crust, the kids cut it out in pumpkins cut out faces in them, made some filling, and put them together! Done! It was simple and yummy.
So there you have it! To be honest, these smelled so good while they cooked! I wanted to eat them all! But I didn’t! 😉 What is your favorite fall treat to make with the kids!
