Make your pies the talk of the Thanksgiving dessert table. These creative crust designs only look complicated, but putting a personal stamp on store-bought pie creust is easy as, well, pie! All it takes is ready-made dough and a little creativity with your favorite Pampered Chef ® tool.
Give your pie a fun seasonal flourish with a pie crust turkey! Lay dough on a Pastry Mat and cut out three hearts with the heart Creative Cutters Set. Cut out a circle with the 1½” Biscuit Cutter. Use scraps for the face, attaching with beaten egg or water. For the crust, arrange pie dough into your pan, making sure it comes up the edges. Cut out around the rim using the heart Creative Cutter. The crust will bake down to form this scalloped look. When the pie is in its last 15 minutes of baking, arrange the turkey as shown and return it to the oven to finish.
