Easy As Pie

Easy As Pie

When in need of a pie for those “Bring a Dish” parties, for last minute holiday do-drop-ins, or when hosting the family holiday meal and overwhelmed, here’s an EASY anecdote… the beautifully adorned pumpkin pie. First, buy a pie! If pumpkin isn’t your thing, substitute with a custard or buttermilk pie. Also, pick up a box of maple leaf of leaf-shaped cookies. Follow the steps below to create a seasonal garnish that makes that store-bought pie your very own. Now get decorating… First, lay the leaf-shaped cookies around the entire edge of the pie, slightly overlapping cookies for more texture. Take your frosted cranberries and place next to cookies ever few inches or so. It’s easy as pie! (Don’t forget to ditch the original pie packaging.)

Frosted Cranberries

Prep time – 5 minutes   Ready In – 2 hours & 5 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon pasteurized egg white or liquid egg substitute
  • 1 (12 ounce) package of fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup white sugar


In a medium bowl, stir together the water and egg white until blended but not whipped. Coat cranberries with this mixture. Spread the sugar out on a baking sheet, and roll the cranberries in it until they are coated. Dry at room temperature for 2 hours. Use as garnishes for desserts, and enjoy a few while preparing.
