Absolutely my favorite, this reminds me of classic cheesecake
topping. A cinch to make, pour it over your pumpkin pie just after
baking. 3/4 c Sour Cream 2 tb Granulated Sugar Combine sour cream and
sugar; spread over hot, baked pie, leaving a 1/2-inch border around
edges uncovered. Return to oven for about 7 minutes until just set. M
E R I N G U E ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If your pie fillingcalls for 3 or more
eggs, just use the yolks and reserve the whites to make this topping.
This goes over your hot baked pie, adding height and a great contrast
in textures. 3 ea Egg Whites 1 ts Lemon Juice 1/2 c Granulated Sugar
1/2 ts Vanilla In bowl, beat egg whites and lemon juice until frothy.
Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff but
not dry. Beat in vanilla. Cover hot, baked pie with meringue,
creating attractive peaks. Return to 375F oven for about 8 minutes or
until topping is golden. S O U R C R E A M S P I D E R ‘ S W E B
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Create this attractive,
impressive design by incorporating it into the pie’s unbaked filling
++ it cooks right in. 2 tb Sour Cream 2 tb Granulated Sugar Combine
sour cream and sugar; place in small pipingbag with large round tip
or plastic mustard/ketchup bottle. On unbaked pumpkin filling, pipe a

paring knife, draw shallow line through filling and topping from
outer edge to center; repeat at 7 evenly-spaced intervals around pie.
Between each of the 8 lines draw another line from center to outer
edge. This will create the spider web effect. Bake pie according to
