Picture of Cherry Oh Possum Pie
Spring is when the cherry possums bloom and are in abundance. Really, we got possums here in Brooklyn, NY. They were brought in to control the rat population and you know how tinkering with mother nature turns out. No need to go all the way to Arkansas to find them. Anyway, enjoy this special dessert although it is still a bit to go before Halloween.

Yeah, I think this is vegan.

Step 1: Forage like early man...

Who has time to make stuff from scratch?  Gas up that Hummer of yours and get to the mega-mart to shop for your wholey-processed convenience foods.  Be prepared to pay more if you want it certified organic.  If you really want to do things right, you of course can make your pie dough from scratch and even make fresh pie fruit filling if desired. Just search for the instructables on those topics.

You will need:

Pre-made pie crusts
a can of Cherry pie filling
an egg to use as a glaze

optional for deocration:
a blueberry or something like a dingleber raisin.
shredded coconut
crushed nuts of any variety
grape jelly or food coloring if desired to play around with coloring the pie crust

You can use any kind of pie dish to form the creature and bake in the oven.

CAUTION: Know how to operate your kitchen appliances, be careful with using sharp implements, know how to work with gas, clean up after yourself. If you can't stand the fn heat, get out of the fn kitchen.

Man, I love this one. I've shown it to several people, and they're so grossed out by the initial picture that it's hard to get them to hang around to show them that it's just a cherry pie! There's a Halloween Pot Luck at work soon, I wasn't going to go, but now I'm going to put my name on the list and say I'm bringing "Possum Pie." HAAAAAAAhahahahaha! If nobody eats any of it, I'll have a whole cherry pie to myself!

It's not everyday that you get a special treat.
This just shows the answer to the age old question.  Why did the chicken cross the road?  To show the possom it could be done!   I LOVE IT!

This belongs on the menu at The Roadkill Cafe
