Reviews for Black Cat Dippers with Pumpkin Pie Dip
Sort By :
I had trouble with the egg wash. Besides being a mess to brush on (and to clean up), it looked more gray than black. I used a bat cookie cutter to make the dippers easier to use. Co-workers liked them.
This was quick and easy. Great hit at the company party.
simple recipe to spice up a Halloween party!
I didn't roll the crust as thin as the recipe states. I left it the thickness it was as packaged and it was perfect.
The flavor combination was perfect! Just like biting into a slice of pumpkin pie. I served it at our Halloween party and everyone who got to try it thought it was great! However, it's best to use two boxes of pie crust, as there's a lot of dip left over. This recipe is perfect to use all season long, but with different shapes.
I look forward to making this again.
The dip was yummy, but the cut-outs were too brittle. It was disappointing.
