Jack O' Lantern Cheeseburger Pie

Ingredients:
· 1 pound ground beef
· 1 medium onion, chopped
· 2 tablespoons minced garlic
· Salt and Pepper, to taste
· ¼ cup ketchup
· 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
· 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
· 1 tablespoon mustard

· 1 large egg
· Red and yellow liquid food coloring

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Cook ground beef, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef is crumbled and no longer pink; then drain. Stir in ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and cool.
3. Unfold one pie crust and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread mustard evening over crust. Stir together meat mixture and 2 cups cheese. Spoon mixture onto center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border.
4. Unfold remaining pie crust and put out a jack o’ lantern face, reserving pastry cuts to use as a stem. Place crust over meat mixture; crimp edges of crust and fold under. Place stem on top of jack o’ lantern.
5. Whisk together 2 tablespoons water, egg and 1 drop each of red and yellow food coloring. Brush over crust.
