Are you looking for an easy pumpkin pie recipe? Well, look no more. These mini pumpkin pie bites are the perfect choice for the upcoming holidays, parties and family gatherings. Your guests will be impressed with this bites-sized delicious dessert!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease with non-stick cooking spray a mini muffin pan and set aside.
Place the pastry dough on a floured surface and roll with a rolling pin a few times and using a round cookie cutter cut at least 12 rounds. Next, with a fork, press around the edges to create small lines. This is optional but it will give a nice touch to the bites.
Carefully place the small pie crust circles into the mini muffin pan. Use your fingers to press the perimeter of the crust to fit the muffin tin
How to make the pumpkin filling:
In a big mixing bowl combine the pumpkin puree, condensed milk, spices, and egg. Whisk until all the ingredients are well combined.
Place the batter into the pie crust using a mini ice cream scoop for an easy process or small spoon. Place it in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the center of the pie is set. The mini pies will look puffy when they come out of the oven, however, they will come back down when they cool down.
Let them cool down on the counter and then top them with some whipped cream. This will cover the wrinkly top and make them look and taste delicious.
*I use a store-bought crust to speed up the preparation process. But you can definitely use homemade pie crust.
