First of all you guys know how I feel about making cute pies.
But I'm that girl that when I go to the dessert table at a party, I just want a taste of everything.
(Okay, and then to go back for more of the thing I loved the most.)
These mini pumpkin pies are just perfect for that. And for the person who LOVES pumpkin pie the most, just take 5 with no regrets. You do you.
These look sorta schmancy, but they're super easy.
Also, everything is cuter in mini form, am I right?
And here's how the recipe goes down:
Get your canned pumpkin, your store bought pie dough, and your cute cookie cutters out.
(My recipe calls for pumpkin but I accidentally grabbed pumpkin pie mix so just do whatever works for you)
Roll out your dough and grab your circle cutter.
Ideally you need a 3-4" circle. A wide mouth mason jar is a perfect sub if you don't already own one.
Cut out 12 circles.
Spray your muffin tin and fill with your mini doughs.
Whip up your pumpkin mixture (recipe below) and fill each dough 3/4 full.
With the extra dough left over, use your mini cookie cutters to cut out your desired pie garnishes.
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes
Things I've learned the hard way:
Don't fill them too full or they bake over and do little burnt edges as seen here.
Put your garnishes on half way through baking if you don't want them overdone.
Let cool completely before you plate to serve.
And they taste best shared with friends. :)
