Servings: 12
Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

  • 1 box 15 oz. prepared pie dough sheets
  • 1 can 15 oz. pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs and 2 egg whites, divided
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 can 12 oz. evaporated milk
  • Blue, yellow, and black food coloring
  • 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate frosting
  • Whipped cream optional

Step 1: Prepare the Pie Crust : Preheat oven to 425`F. Unroll one of the prepared pie doughs onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out to make smooth. Transfer the pie dough to a 9-inch pie plate. Fit the dough into the bottom of the pan. Fold any excess dough under itself to make a clean edge. Crimp the edge with a decorative pattern.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling : Combine the pumpkin puree and two whole eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add the sugars and spices and mix until well blended. Add the milk and stir until well blended.

Step 3: Bake the Pie : Pour the batter into the prepared pie shell. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350`F. Continue baking until the center is just set, 40 to 50 minutes longer. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

Step 4: Prepare the Swiper Pie Topper : Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Divide the egg whites among three small bowls. Tint one bowl blue, one yellow, and one light brown with the cocoa powder and a drop of yellow food coloring. Spoon the chocolate frosting into a freezer-weight resealable bag.

Step 5: Cut out the Pie Topper Pieces : Unroll the remaining pie dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Use the templates to cut out the shapes. Transfer the pieces to the prepared cookie sheet. Use a toothpick or the tip of a small knife to score the lines on top of the dough. Use a small clean craft brush to brush the tinted egg whites onto the top of the dough. Place the pieces in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Brush the dough again for a more intense color. Tint a small amount of the brown egg white black and brush the nose dough piece.

Step 6: Bake the Pie Topper : Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator until the pie is finished baking. Bake the pieces until slightly golden and set, about 7 to 11 minutes, depending on the size of the piece. Smaller pieces may need to be removed from the cookie sheet to prevent getting too brown. Transfer the pieces to a wire rack to cool.

Step 7: Assemble the Pie Topper : When ready to serve, arrange the dough pieces as Swiper on top of the pie. Add the paws next to the crust edge. Snip a very small corner from the bag with the chocolate frosting and pipe the outline of his teeth. Make a larger snip from the corner and pipe his eyes and whiskers. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
