Original Pumpkin Pie

 Okay, remember that pumpkin I cooked yesterday, well today I decided to make it into a pumpkin pie. However my kitchen was lacking one essential thing - a crust. And Thing #4 and Thing #5 were sick and so I had no desire to take them to the store to get the crust. I had told the other kids that we were going to make this, so I rummaged through the cupboards until I found something that I thought would work. I thought it would taste okay if we made a graham cracker crust, but Thing #5 had eaten all of the graham crackers a day ago - so I settled on the next closest thing: animal crackers. Yes you heard me right, animal crackers.
I followed the instructions for my favorite pumpkin pie except I made an animal cracker crust (just like a graham cracker crust but with the animal crackers). I think that it turned out great, and it was gone in under an hour. Thing #5 did not like the crust too much, but then he doesn't like animal crackers very much either. Here is my extremely original pumpkin pie.
Pin It! \
