Boo!


I spent all Saturday baking and finishing my Halloween costume. I've been really into baking cute festive treats lately and I've been excited all week about making these. I got the idea from here. They didn't come out as cute as hers (they never do) but were a HUGE hit at the ward Halloween party. They were cute and delicious. The actual pumpkin pie part wasn't my favorite (but really good), probably my fault somehow since they didn't look as orange as hers. Next time I'll find a new recipe for the filling. I also made tiny pecan pies, the same as the pumpkin but without the stem. I used this recipe and they were AMAZING. Next time I'll do those exactly the same! I'm so bummed I didn't get a picture of those cute little things. I brought all the pumpkin and pecan pies to the ward Halloween Party/Chili Cook-off last night, I brought at least 50 and they were gone so fast. Really, like gone in 5 minutes. Next time keep lots at home for myself - I can't wait to make these again!







And here's our costume! A bun in the oven - I thought it was pretty cute. We won most creative :). Calder did have an apron later on in the night - we didn't have one so we had to borrow.
