A great recipe for kids to make!
This is a great recipe for kids to get involved with! Mine love using the cookie cutter to cut out the shapes, place them in the mason jar lids and stuff with the easy-to-whip-up pumpkin pie filling.
I’m all about the mini pies this year because I’ve realized that if I have a regular serving size of anything on my plate, I cannot contain myself from finishing it all. So I make desserts mini like my Cranberry Apple Mini Pies, and there ya have it…it’s one serving (just a whole lot smaller).
I use a mason jar lid to shape the mini pie crust and cook them individually for portion-controlled adorable mini pumpkin pies.
How to make this mini pumpkin pie recipe
Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the mason jar lids on the baking sheet and spray them with cooking oil.
Cut out 12 separate circles out of the pie crust and place them inside the mason jar lids, pushing tightly to secure.
In a large bowl, add all the pie filling ingredients and whisk with a hand blender to combine and pour the pie filling into the pie crusts, filling them about 3/4 full. Bake the mini pumpkin pies at 375°F for 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Let cool before serving.
Top tips to make mini pumpkin pies
- Use pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling. You want to make sure the only ingredient is pumpkin puree since you’ll be adding the sugar and spices to make the pumpkin chocolate chip bread.
- Use a muffin tin instead of the mason jar lids if necessary. The mason jar lids were vey convenient for setting the pie dough on them to bake. But you an also place them in a muffin tin which works just the same.
- Make sure the wet ingredients are at room temperature before adding in the coconut oil. Otherwise, even if the coconut oil is melted, it will seize, which will not allow it to spread properly while baking.
Frequently asked questions
How long should a pumpkin pie cool before serving it?
These mini pumpkin pies should be left to cool completely before serving, this can take up to a couple of hours so be sure to plan ahead. The filling will set as it cools, so it’s important to give it the time it needs!
Can you heat up the mini pumpkin pies?
If you prefer to have your pumpkin pie warm, once it has cooled completely you can quickly warm it up in the microwave. They will just need 10 – 30 seconds each.
Can you freeze mini pumpkin pies?
Yes! Once the pies are cooked, let them cool completely then wrap them in plastic wrap or individual freezer bags. They will be good for up to a month. Thaw the pies in the refrigerator.
