Filling:

1.     Melt down the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan on low heat. Be sure to stir continuously to avoid burning.

2.     Stir in the vanilla. If you are using the pumpkin pie spice, add it now as well.

3.     Stir in the orange food coloring until your desired color is reached.

4.     Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until the cereal is completely coated.

5.     Transfer the mixture into the center of the pie pan.

7.     Once cooled you can slice and serve your “pie”!

8.     Add a dollop of cool whip or buttercream frosting to the top each pie for the perfect holiday look!

Enjoy!
