Pumpkin Pie (Cooking with Kids)

Pumpkin Pie. Yum!
My good friend Sarah suggested we bake pumpkin pies with our girls! We opted for a easy mix with water crust and had the girls help us roll out the dough. I had to do some dough patchwork but we covered the whole pie pan.
 Then, we mixed the ingredients.
 And, poured them into the crust.

 The girls had a great time and the pie was delicious!!

  1. Dear Charlotte, I loved seeing your pumpkin looks so delicious and just perfect! I think you will make a great baker, just like your Mommy!
