Monica's Award-Winning Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients for Pie
One graham cracker crust
1-15 oz. can pumpkin
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Mix these ingredients together and pour into crust. Bake for 15 minutes at 425. Then reduce oven heat to 350.

Ingredients for Topping
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. cold butter
3/4 c. walnuts

Mix together flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon - cut in butter. Stir in walnuts. Sprinkle over the pie when you reduce the oven. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.


Pumpkin Pie Playdough

2 cups of plain flour
2 cups of water
1 Tbsp. of cooking oil
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup of salt
3/4 oz. pumpkin pie spice (about half of the container)
food coloring, if desired

Place all of the ingredients in a medium size or large pot on medium-high heat. Stir it until the playdough thickens. Once the dough has thickened, turn it out onto a plate or cutting board and after it cools a little, knead it until smooth.
