Cook Pumpum

For Thanksgiving I created the Pumpumpum, a variation on the Cherpumple, except with only pumpkin pies. For Christmas, I decided to go a bit further and place cookies INSIDE the pies as well!

While only two layers, one pumpkin pie had sugar cookies, and the other had chocolate chip. The cakes (chocolate and butter) were dyed red and green for the holiday occasion. Iced with buttercream, crushed Oreo cookies were placed on the side, and Mint Milano’s on top of the cake(s) with M&M’s in the middle.
