Ways to embellish your pumpkin pie
One fun way to embellish your pie and make it gorgeous is to add some pie crust cut outs to the edge. You can also add them around the pie. Here’s an easy recipe for making them as well: On a floured work surface, roll out a pie crust. Using your choice of cookie cutters, cut into shapes. Brush each lightly with the beaten egg + milk mixture. Place onto a parchment paper or silicone baking mat-lined baking sheet and bake at 350°F (177°C) for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and set aside to cool before decorating pie.

Here’s a simple method for blind baking that will help you pre bake it perfectly. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Fill your pie with weight. Line the chilled pie crust with parchment paper. (Crunch up the parchment paper first so that you can easily shape it into the crust.) Fill with pie weights or dried beans. Make sure the weights are evenly distributed around the pie dish. Finally, Bake until the edges of the crust are starting to brown, about 15-16 minutes. Remove pie from the oven and carefully lift the parchment paper (with the weights) out of the pie. Prick holes all around the bottom crust with a fork. Return the pie crust to the oven. For pumpkin pie bake until the bottom crust is just beginning to brown, about 7-8 minutes.The crust can still be warm when you add the filling.
