Fancy Holiday Crusts

I love to try new ways of decorating, especially when I get to eat the results of my experimentation.  Since I’ve been so into pies lately, I decided that I would take my cooking art up a notch and add some tricks for purely aesthetic reasons.  Here’s a few pics of the results.

This is just a fun way to make use of those mini cookie cutters, but the effect is great for the holidays.  Pumpkin pie works especially well because of the contrast and the “flat” nature of the pie.  Apple pie bubbles and buckles, so the little maple-leaf holes in the top crust don’t hold shape as well.

All in all, a fun (and tasty) experiment.
