If you’re anything like us, then you probably look forward to pie season all year long. These mini pumpkin pies are proof that the wait is totally worth it.
While pumpkin pie in its nine-inch form is delicious and classic, these mini pumpkin pies are easy to make and even easier to eat. We love whipping up this pumpkin pie recipe in mini tarts for effortless entertaining. Whether you’re making these mini pumpkin pies for a social function or just keeping them on the kitchen counter for a grab-and-go treat for the family, you’re going to love this bite-size version of pie.
Making these mini pies is really no different than making an easy pumpkin pie when it comes to the pumpkin pie filling. All of the filling ingredients are whisked together until they’re smooth and blended well. The reason these mini pumpkin pie bites are easier to make than classic pie is that you don’t have to roll out or shape any pie crust.
To create the mini pie crust, you can simply use a package of store-bought tart shells. The shells are buttery, flaky, and crisp just like classic pie crust. After you fill the shells, it’s just a matter of baking the mini pumpkin pies for about half an hour. Then, you can garnish them with some whipped cream before serving.
