I love pie. Especially homemade pie. Pumpkin pie being my fave. As a matter of fact, I only like pumpkin pie when it’s homemade. I don’t mind pumpkin pie from the can at all, but nothing comes close to a pumpkin pie that is made from a fresh pumpkin!
Other than sharing this pie and my love for pumpkin pie, I also shared with you a recipe that I love to use right HERE in last year’s post. If you have not made (or even tried) pumpkin pie from a fresh pumpkin yet, you better get a move on! You will never look back once you do. :)
Along with a yummy recipe, I also love making my piecrust look pretty. To make a pretty pie, other than my Emile Henry pie plate, I love using piecrust cutters. I had purchased the cutters (along with the plate) pictured above from Williams-Sonoma a few years ago. I use them anytime I make pies (but they can also come in handy to make little cookie cut outs as well as fondant cut outs).
This year Williams-Sonoma’s new set includes a turkey, a pumpkin, and an acorn. Once I saw that acorn… and then the turkey and pumpkin, I was sold. I tried to talk myself out of buying a second set, but I just couldn’t resist so off to Williams-Sonoma I went and treated myself to a new set of piecrust cutters.
Of course I couldn’t wait to use the cutters, so I made a pumpkin pie as soon as I got home. Look how cute are the cut outs! The cutters are very easy to use, but the box does include instructions if needed.
Mmm… I can’t wait to dig into that! Oh wait.. by the time you read this I would have already dug into it. Haha! ;) Aren’t the cut outs a perfect finishing touch? I sure do love the new shapes!
Are you wondering why there’s two sets of cutters in the picture above? That’s because I got one for you too! Well, for one lucky OTI reader that is! This is just my way of saying thanks to you guys for being so awesome. I am honestly grateful for all my followers! I wish I can give one to each and every one of you… but I guess you have to be Oprah to be able to do that. Ha! ;) Let’s get on with the giveaway, shall we…
