Halloween Eats & Treats: Worm Pie & the Great Pie Bake-Off

Last month, a small group of bloggers decided to all bake pies from the movie Waitress. We had such fun with it that we decided to make it a monthly event! A new blog, The Great Pie Bake-Off, has been created for anyone who wants to join in to share the link to their pie recipes each month. A new theme will be announced and you can join in on the fun with us!

The theme for October was Spooky Halloween Pies which fit in perfectly with all the Halloween party food I was making!

With this theme, I decided that it didn't have to be what you would call a "traditional" pie. I promise to be a bit more traditional with the November pie though! This one has no crust, but definitely fits the spooky Halloween theme... it's called Worm Pie!

Who would've guessed such a simple combination of ingredients would end up being the biggest hit of the night with the kids? Not me, but I'll tell you that next year I'm making 2 of these pies!

From Family, Friends and Food

A combination of orange jello and gummy worms all put into a pie dish for the kids enjoyment! I almost forgot to put this out on the table, but thanks to a friend who saw it in the fridge the kids got a bit more sugar into their bodies before I sent them home!

This is another quick and easy treat that I found in the ghoulish goodies cookbook. I could re-type the recipe, but it's so simple that I can just describe it and you will remember it without writing it down. Put a layer of fresh gummy worms in the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Make orange Jello according to package directions, allow to cool to room temperature. Pour into a the pie dish, then chill. Check it after about an hour and push down any worms that might be floating to the top. I chilled mine overnight, and there was not a speck left once the kids discovered it had arrived on the table!

Be sure to visit The Great Pie Bake-off blog to see the other pies my pie-baking friends have made this month. If you are interested in playing along, check back soon for the November theme!

How cute, Patsy! Love the simplicity of this pie. Orange Jello and gummy worms---I bet the kids flipped for this :)

WOW great idea! I used worms as well but the idea of using them in Jello is so much better.

This is truly gross-looking and thus Halloween worthy! I have to show my daughter your site. She'd love all the spooky ideas.
