Mini Pumpkin Pies

Pumpkin Pie is a custard pie made with pumpkin puree.  It is a Thanksgiving staple for most.   I shared a post about how to puree a pumpkin, so I figured what better to make with pumpkin puree than pumpkin pie. 

I decided to switch it up from a normal 9 inch pie to mini 3 inch pies.  When I have company over I like to have “easy” dessert options. I think individual desserts are no fuss dessert options lol.  I don’t have to be concerned with cutting slices for guests, They can just choose their mini dessert and hold it. 

For this recipe I used the 3 inch frozen pie shells.  However if you want to make your own pie crust I’ve ordered 3 inch tart pans from this site many times. 

How To Make These Mini Pies

I started these pies by putting 2 cups of homemade pumpkin puree in a bowl.  Don’t worry if you don’t want to make your own pumpkin puree, you can absolutely use pumpkin puree from a can.  Next I add brown sugar to the pumpkin puree.  I add melted butter, evaporated milk, and beat 3 eggs and poured that into the pumpkin mixture.  I finished the pie batter with vanilla  extract and pumpkin pie spice. I baked the pie in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.  If you decided you don’t want to bake mini pies, a 9 inch pie will bake for about 45- 50 minutes, when the pie is done the center should jiggle slightly.  The pie will look a little puffed up when it comes out of the oven, however as the pie cools the pie begins to settle.
