Last year for Thanksgiving I wanted to add decorative leaves from pie crust on the top of my pumpkin pie, but I didn’t do it. This year I decided to give it a try and I’m glad that I did. Have you ever added leaves (or other things) to the top of your pumpkin pie?

Making the leaves was very simple. I used the extra crust that came with the Pillsbury pie crust to cut out eight leaves with a cookie cutter. I drew lines on top of each leaf with a toothpick to give the leaves more details.

I’m going to be making another pumpkin pie within the next week or two and I’m going to have fun with adding decorative pieces of pie crust on top of my pumpkin pie.

Here is how to add decorative leaves on top of a pumpkin pie.

When do you decorate for Fall? Do you decorate for a general Fall theme or do you change it up for Halloween and Thanksgiving? Most of my decor for Fall is of pumpkins and leaves and I add the color orange to my decor colors. Majority of my Fall decor is from my Mother-in-law. Each year, I like to change up my decor little bit from the year before. Plus I like to add to my Fall decor collection.

 Do you love cheesecake? What is your favorite flavor? I’m a big fan of cheesecake. I’ve even had cheesecake as my cake for my birthday before. I love cheesecake that much.

When Fall arrives, I especially love pumpkin cheesecake. I have to get a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at Starbucks when it arrives. This season, I’ve already had a slice that I shared with my girls. I’ll definitely have more.

Usually around Thanksgiving time, I like to bake a maple pumpkin cheesecake. I get my recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

Below is my recipe for maple pumpkin cheesecake.
