Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Pie

It’s the best week of the year: Thanksgiving week!

Short week, long weekend and more pie than you know what to do with. JK. We’re obvi going to eat it.

What dish are you in charge of at your Thanksgiving dinner this year? The BF and I are heading to both of our families this year so I’m on the hook for six (!) pies. Seven if you count our post turkey day friendsgiving. Good thing I find pie making pretty therapeutic. (Except when I burnt the butter twice today…)

Happy fall y’all! Pie season is officially here. (I personally think it’s pie season, year round…but that’s just me).

If you’re anything like me, you have a lot of pie in your future. Between apple picking, Friendsgiving, and Thanksgiving—your oven is about to be in overdrive.

Which means you need insta-worthy pie crust ideas…naturally. Take a peak at a few of my favorite autumn inspired pie crusts. Hap-pie baking.

For these fun crust designs, you’ll find a few tools very handy:

Fall Banner

Throw some leaves and pumpkins on your pie and top it with an adorable fall banner.

Don’t Stop Be-leaf-in’

No such thing as too many leaves. All you need is a bit of patience and a lot of pie crust dough.

Puns on pie are always a good idea. Letter cutouts are essential, unless you have the hands of a surgeon.

Pumpkin Toppers

Pumpkin pie may not have a top crust, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a few embellishments. I love these with leaves, pumpkins, and cranberry decorations.
