  • 2 Cover crust edge with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. In large bowl, mix filling ingredients. Pour into crust-lined pie plate. Bake 15 minutes.

If necessary, continue to microwave at 10-second intervals. Cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag over top of pie to draw a jack-o'-lantern face. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

Expert Tips

Cutting edges on graters come in all sizes. When grating the orange, choose a tiny cutting edge. Press firmly, but not so hard that you cut into the bitter white part of the skin.

Pumpkin pie spice can be substituted with a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
