Jack-O'-Lantern Cheeseburger Pie

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, pressed

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts

1 tablespoon prepared mustard

3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided

2 tablespoons water

1 large egg

Red and yellow liquid food coloring

1. Cook first 5 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in ketchup and Worcestershire sauce; cool.

2. Unfold 1 piecrust, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread mustard evenly over crust. Stir together meat mixture and 2 cups cheese; spoon onto center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border.

3. Unfold remaining piecrust, and cut out a jack-o'-lantern face, reserving pastry cutouts 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 face.

4. Whisk together 2 tablespoons water, egg, and 1 drop each of red and yellow food coloring; brush over crust.

5. Bake at 425*F (220*C) for 20 minutes; remove from oven, and brush again with egg mixture. Fill eyes, nose, and mouth with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake 5 to 10 more minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
