Mini Pumpkin Pies Ingredients
- Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts
- pumpkin puree
- sweetened condensed milk
- vanilla extract
- ground cinnamon
- pumpkin pie spice
- kosher salt
How to Make these Mini Pumpkin Pies
First, you’ll remove your pie crusts from the fridge and let them stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before unrolling on a lightly floured surface. I used a 2 1/2-inch scallop-edged cookie cutter to make my miniature crusts. You can also use a plain round cookie cutter to cut your rounds. I found that this size worked best because it fits perfectly into the mini muffin tin wells. You will need 24 rounds.
You’ll transfer the rounds to a mini muffin tin that you’ve sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. You will need to press the dough into the bottom and up the sides and then refrigerate for 15 minutes.
While the dough is chilling you will make the filling which is a simple combination of pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, one egg, vanilla extract, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Once it’s well combined and smooth you can pour it into the prepared muffin cups, about a heaping tablespoonful in each.
Now it’s time to transfer to the oven for about 25 minutes at 375 degrees, until they’re puffy and the crust appears golden brown. Once they’re done baking you’ll remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Gently remove the pies from the tin and let cool completely before topping with some whipped cream.
These would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dessert spread! And I know you folks are just going to LOVE how easy they are. Hope you give them a go!
