Eyeball Pie

Eyeball PieWatch these eyeball pies disappear faster than you can say "monster mash." Pudding-filled tart shells are a crowd pleaser and when made into eyeballs for Halloween, they'll be gobbled up in a wink.

Tip: The eyeball tart looks especially scary when presented on a purple fake fur monster bearing candy corn teeth.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (3 1/3-inch) graham cracker tart shell per serving
Cherry pie filling
Vanilla pudding
Sealable plastic bag
Black peel-n-pull lace candy

Cooking Directions:

  1. Spoon 2 tablespoons of cherry pie filling into the bottom of a tart shell. Carefully spoon 2 tablespoons of vanilla pudding over the pie filling, spreading to smooth the surface.
  2. Place a small amount of pie filling, without cherries, into a sealable plastic bag. Snip a small hole in one corner of the bag and squeeze filling onto the pudding to create bloodshot eyes, referring to the photo.
  3. Peel and slice the kiwi. Put one slice onto the center of the pudding. Center a cherry from the pie filling on the kiwi slice. Cut 1, 2 and 3-inch long eyelashes from the black lace candy. Insert the eyelashes into the pudding.

Makes ? servings.
