for halloween- PUMPKIN PIE

my pumpkin mousse pie




1 pkg. Jell-O vanilla instant pudding and pie filling (3.7oz=105g

3/4 c. cold milk (not 2 cups as necessary for vanilla cream pie)

2cups+1/2 c. pumpkin puree (600g)

3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

3 1/2 c. Cool Whip/or whipped cream (450g whipped cream)

1 baked 9-inch pie shell / or graham crackers


1. Prepare vanilla pie filling mix as directed on the package with 3/4 cup milk.
MY NOTE;  This is very important, this way the mouse will not be watery, stiff, and nicely shaped.
2. Blend in pumpkin puree, spice, and 2 cups of whipping topping. 

3. Spoon into a pie shell, of your choice.
4. Chill for at least 4 hours and add crushed  Praline Nut Topping (optional). If it is easy, count on the pastry shell slivered almonds.

My daughter made a nice-looking pumpkin pie, and her little son, my grandson, was a VAMPIRE!!!   Wouuuuu Scarrrryyyyyy!  In between candies, after a long walk to the park, the pie was very much appreciated!!!

1/2 c. sugar
2 tbsp. water
few drops of lemon juice
1/2 c. pecans, coarsely chopped

Butter a baking sheet. Heat sugar, water, and a few drops of lemon juice in a skillet, until the color, becomes light, caramel. Stir in nuts. Spread quickly on a baking sheet.
 Cool and chop into small pieces.

For this year  HALLOWEEN, I DECIDED TO MAKE A EASY PUMPKIN PIE, WHICH turns OUT TO BE "pumpkin pie in a glass"



  2. I love the idea of pumpkin pie in a glass! Beautiful and yummy too!

  3. The idea just came to me, my daughter and I made the pie, and I realized that is a little too soft, the glass idea came as a inspiration, thank you for the comment, ili
