Serve topped with cool whip and no one will ever know.

My mother would salvage her pie and cake disasters by lining a pretty bowl with ladyfingers cookies, and then layering the filling with jam, chopped sugared nuts, more cookies...

I seem to recall ladyfingers cookies soaked in rum, too, but can't tell you how they were used.

Tip: Add Marshmallows to Pumpkin Pie

By linda 61 78

To make a tasty topping for pumpkin pie, put marshmallows on the bottom of the pie crust and top with the filling, as it bakes the marshmallows come to the top.

Tip: Substitute Chinese 5 Spice For Pumpkin Pie Spice

Last night, I found myself making a pumpkin pie and realized I was out of cinnamon AND nutmeg and had no premixed pumkin pie spice. Not wanting to run to the store, I rummaged through my spice cabinet in search of alternatives and found Chinese 5 spice blend.

Chinese 5 spice blend contains Star Anise, Fennel, Cinnamon, Cloves and Pepper. It gave an interesting spicy flavor to the pie which offset the sweetness.

The oven rack may be too close to the top heating element in the oven. This can cause filling to 'skin' and crack as it bakes and to settle slightly when cooling and pull away from the crust. Another possible reason is over-baking. Try reducing cooking time by 5 to 10 minutes. Also, for best results, bake the pie in the lower third of the oven.
