How To Make Pumpkin Pie Turkeys

Making these Pumpkin Pie Turkeys is as easy as pie! You'll need:
9-inch Pumpkin Pie
Biscuit Cutter (this is the best one I've found!)
Mini Peanut Butter Cups
Orange Reese's Pieces
Melted Chocolate Chips
Step 1 - Cut Out Circles in Pumpkin Pie
The easiest way to do this is by using a biscuit cutter. You can use a cookie-cutter, but I like the biscuit cutter's depth a little better. Cut out as many as you can from your pie.
Depending on the pie size, you'll get 4-6 circles.
(Note: this pie was an extra-large Costco version 🙂 )
Step 2 - Melt Chocolate Chips and Cut Reese's Pieces in Half
Step 3 - Attach Peanut Butter Cup to Pumpkin Pie
After you've unwrapped your peanut butter cup, affix it to your pumpkin pie circle narrow side down on the lower half with a little melted chocolate.
Step 4 - Attach Candy Eyeballs and Reese's Pieces
On top of the peanut butter cup, attach two candy eyeballs with melted chocolate. Then take half a Reese's Pieces and attach it longways under the eyes with chocolate to make the beak.
Step 5 - Apply Candy Corn Feathers
Place 5 pieces of candy corn at the top of the circle to form tail feathers, narrow side pointing down.
Let the chocolate harden, and serve!
Tips for Making Pumpkin Pie Turkeys
- As we mentioned, we like a 1.5-inch biscuit cutter to make the round turkey bodies, but a round cookie cutter of the same size will also work.
- This Pumpkin Pie Dessert will last a couple of days in the refrigerator, but it is best to serve them soon after making them.

Is there a trick to getting the pumpkin pie cut-out removed from the biscuit cutter?
Erin Henry says
Good question, Susan. We got it out by sliding it with our fingers. If you're finding it difficult, you can spray the inside of the biscuit cutter with non-stick cooking spray before using them.
