They'll Gobble It Up Pie is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this for Thanksgiving and the kids loved it! They called it the "turkey pie" and wanted more. I was a little hesitant about the icing and the pumpkin pie but it pretty much tasted just like cool-whip. I didn't have an electric mixer though so I was unable to get the frosting stiff enough. My turkey was sort of scary looking But it was still fun to make. I'm determined to make an even better one next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the idea on a cake, rather than a pie. It was fairly easy to do, using tip #21 for the feathers.
