This impressive pie should go for top dollar at your bake sale. It features a walnut-brown sugar layer and a cream cheese-pumpkin
layer, and it's topped with pastry cut-outs for a dazzling presentation.
Attach a tag to the pie with instructions for serving the pie with ice cream and chocolate syrup. To enhance the sales value,
sell the pie along with a decorative glass jar filled with chocolate syrup.
Another option for pies is to sell a box of a dozen little pies. These pies are drizzled with melted white chocolate chips,
so just include a bag of the chips with the pies along with instructions for melting and drizzling. You can also wrap individually
and sell single pies.
The suggested garnish for this pie is a sprinkling of cocoa, but it's best to leave it off for the sale as it may either be
absorbed into the topping or discolor it slightly after it sits out on your display table. Keep all chilled pies in a refrigerator
until right before the sale begins.
To guarantee great sales, schedule your bake sale for the weekend before Thanksgiving so that people can buy baked goods for
their family feasts. The pumpkin pies will go fast. This recipe includes a flavored whipped cream topping, so attach a tag
to the pie plate with the ingredients and instructions.
There are a number of explanations about the origins of the name "chess pie" but it's generally a single crust pie with a
sweet filling of eggs and butter. This one is distinct because of the ready-made shortbread crust. It's a great pie for bake
sales because the filling is somewhat firm and the shortbread crust is sturdy.
Prepare and sell this double-crust pie in a disposable pie plate that has a plastic lid so that the beautiful crust stays
intact. Buy these plates at a local bakery or the grocery store bakery, or ask if the store might donate some for your cause.
