Our first look at the standalone Black Widow movie, featuring Scarlett Johansson as Agent Natasha Romanoff, is here!
And while the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been relatively quiet since the summer releases of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Stuidos is back in full force with a brand new poster and teaser trailer to get us excited for the upcoming Black Widow movie to be released on May 1, 2020.
Starring alongside Scarlett Johansson are three new actors and actresses to join the MCU. Joining the cast is David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian, seen previously as Hopper in Stranger Things and as Hellboy, Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff, known for her roles in The Mummy series (my favorite!), and Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, previously seen in Midsommar and Fighting With My Family (any other WWE fans around?!).

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of this new Marvel trailer, and in hopes that we would get our first look this December, I decided to bake a special Black Widow-inspired treat last week for our Thanksgiving dinner. That’s right, we had Black Widow pumpkin pie this holiday — can you think of anything better?

Marvel Recipe Idea: Black Widow Pumpkin Pie

What You Need:
For the Pumpkin Filling
- 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin
- 12 fl oz. can of evaporated milk
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 c. of sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
For the Pie Crust and Decorations
- Pre-made refrigerated pie crust, two rolls
- 1 egg white, beaten
- Pastry brush
- Paring knife
- Black Widow logo template — DOWNLOAD 1 & DOWNLOAD 2
- 2 pieces of card stock paper
- Baking sheet
- Pie pan
- Parchment paper
First, download the Black Widow logo files (see list above). For the main Black Widow design which will be placed on the center of the pie (download 1), print and cut out the file at 8 inches wide on a piece of card stock paper (discard the black areas of the design, that is where the cinnamon will go). For the smaller Black Widow logo designs that will be placed along the edges of the pie (download 2), print and cut out several pieces at 1 inch width. Set aside. (Note: if you have a Cricut cutting machine, you could also use this to cut the stencils.)
Roll out one roll of refrigerated pie dough on a clean surface.
Place your main, larger Black Widow design, aka your stencil, on the pie dough. Using a paring knife, cut the outer circle out of the pie dough. Using a pastry brush, brush beaten egg white over the open part of the stencil. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the brushed egg white.
Carefully raise the stencil off of the dough, being careful not to disturb the excess cinnamon on top of the stencil, and set aside. If the edges of your design are not as clean as you’d like, use a paring knife to straighten the edge of the cinnamon.
Use the remaining dough pieces to cut out a handful of the smaller Black Widow logo designs with a paring knife.
Carefully move your finished dough design and logo pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then, bake them in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.
Next, unroll your remaining pie dough in your pie pan. Trim the excess from the edges and use a fondant mold (I used this one) to create a detailed design for the pie crust edging by pressing extra pieces of dough into the mold and adhering to the pie crust edge with egg wash.
Next, preheat your oven to 425 degrees and prepare your pumpkin filling.
Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and pumpkin together, then mix in the dry ingredients. Lastly, incorporate the evaporated milk and mix to combine.
Pour the filling into the pie dish lined with pie crust. Bake your pie for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and place your Black Widow pie crust designs on top of the hot pie.
